Vicenza

Overview

Among the Berici Hills and Palladian Villas

The province of Vicenza in Veneto promises to immerse you in beauty. Don’t miss a tour of the capital, surrounded by the Berici Hills. On one of these hills is the Sanctuary of St Mary of Mount Berico, with a Gothic and a Baroque church.
In the city, we recommend visiting Piazza dei Signori, Palazzo Chiericati, the Palladian Basilica, the Olympic Theatre and the Salvi gardens.

Near Vicenza is the Buso della Rana, the largest cave in Veneto, while the surroundings of the capital of Veneto are best known for housing the Palladian Villas, which have earned the city UNESCO World Heritage status. The most beautiful among these 16th-century architectural spectacles designed by Andrea Palladio are Villa Thiene, Villa Angarano and Villa Saraceno.

Be sure to visit Bassano del Grappa, along the banks of the Brenta, where you can breathe in the memory of the First World War. Don’t miss the Ponte Vecchio, the Museo degli Alpini museum and the Hemingway and Great War Museum. You definitely have to try the famous grappa produced here and stroll along Viale dei Martiri for scenic views of the Sugana Valley and Monte Grappa.

Vicenza is also the perfect place to discover other local beauties. In Marostica, known as the City of Chess, you can explore the iconic chessboard-shaped main square. Also worth visiting is Asiago, in the Vicentine Pre-Alps, to taste the famous PDO cheese.
