Brenta Canal, Part 3

Back onboard the Burchiello, my cruise continued toward Venice from Stra.  First we had to sail through the Dolo Locks.

Soon we were passing many amazing ville, visible on the left and right banks of the canal.  This area is around Mira, and has a high percentage of villas per square mile!  We also passed very beautiful sections of the canals, with willow trees skimming the water and many fisherman catching their Sunday lunch.

It was smooth sailing and I had one of the best seats on the boat.

We stopped at Villa Widmann, said to be a typical 18th century residence (that is if you were a part of the aristocracy!).  It houses luscious frescoes and has lovely gardens.
