1818, Lord Byron arrives at Ca’ Zen (All servants at work near Venice)
|

Luigi will welcome you with his typical enthusiasm, in the shoes of the head butler of Ca’ Zen. He will help you find out about the typical court activities of the nobility that lived in this splendid Venetian Villa. The Villa has been preserved as it was in the beginning of the ‘800, the time of the famous “love flings” of Lord Byron with the young Guiccioli countess. You will relive the traditions of this house, putting the shoes of a servant of Ca’ Zen. You will take part in a hunt (a photographic one) of the typical fauna of this wild territory which is situated at the Delta of the River Po and has still remained pristine. You will learn the secrets of grooming horses and prepare them for the walks of nobles. At the end of the day, you are to celebrate the success of the venture with a typical Venetian aperitif and, if your contribution is as impeccable as we expect, you will be rewarded with a Certificate of recognition by the very Countess.
