    This is the first theatre in Italy that was built with a roof. Palladio copied some elements of Roman and Greek theaters in the middle ages when it was built. Its interior is just amazing, so large but however a viewer could surely fee he/she was connected to the show, so close to the performers, just wonderful to see. Surely worth the visit.

    This is the beautiful city of VICENZA, in Veneto, North East of the Italian peninsula. Piazze dei Signori is fantastic.

    Beautiful building. If you want to understand it, go to the Palladio museum. If you want to see it, walk around the outside. We gained little from going inside.

    There are lots of staff whose chief job is to scold you for attempting to enter though exits or walk in the “wrong” direction. We followed the signs, but I felt we missed much of it after being particularly chased out of the place by staff telling us we were doing it wrong.

    Villa Valmarana, the home of Count Giustino Valmarana, is located in the hills just outside of Vicenza and was designed by Gianbattista Tiepolo. It can be reached on foot, but, we opted for the 8 euro taxi ride from the train station. An audio guide is available and helps describe the design and contents of each of the rooms of the main house and the adjacent pallazzina. The views of the surrounding hills are spectacular and were one of the highlights of the visit for me.

    it's a nice walk up to the Santuario della Madonna di Monte Berico. The church itself is nice, even if not a big treasure, but sure worth the visit.

    there are some really excellent pieces to be seen here in the permanent collection, and there was a very good temporary exhibition at our visit about time. definitely worth the visit.

    This is a wonderful museum that is relatively small in size and can easily be seen in an hour or so. It is located directly across from the Teatro Olimpico. I recommend that you purchase the museum pass and see both exhibits for a reasonable price.

    Chiesa di Santa Corona is a beautiful Dominican church located in the heart of Vicenza. It’s brick facade is unassuming and its gothic interior exudes understated elegance. Look for the many hidden treasures inside including Bellini’s “The Baptism of Christ” and the stunning Valmarania Chapel designed by Andrea Palladio.

    A lot of older reviews were complaining about the strict "no photo" policy of the villa. Well, photos of the interior are now allowed, as long as you don't use the flash.

    A lot of people are also complaining about missing out on the interior because of the limited opening hours. Well, as beautiful as the frescoed rooms are, I still think it's the impeccable exterior of the house and its position in the countryside that are its main attraction, so the villa is definitely worth a visit even if you find yourself in Vicenza on one of those days when only the garden is opened to the visitors.

    We visited this small museum highlighting Andrea Palladio's work in Vicenza and Venice. It was impressive and inspiring what this man engineered and designed so many years ago.

    The street to be in. This leads to the main square with the Palladio buildings. All around, even shops.

    no big thing as a park, but some vivid wildlife with beavers in the pond, plenty of ducks, big carps swimming etc.

    The nicest church that we saw on our trip to Vicenza. Though it is brick built (or at least brick clad on the outside) rather than made of stone it is very impressive both inside and out.

    Lots of wonderful paintings on the inside and various other statues and the line. To me it is more impressive that the Cathedral, hence if you only have time to visit one, visit this one.

    Lots of history inside and free to visit/wander around. You can take pictures inside if that is your thing.

    We are so positively surprised by the "grandeur" of Vicenza. This bridge just fits in this overall experience, not spectacular but very nice for a look and a short walk.
