How this place is not more famous in Italy is beyond me. The tall tower and the lovely white palace front two squares in the center of the old city. It is virtually devoid of tourists.

I don't know much about art , but I've been around the block a time or two and I know what I like. This building is breathtaking in my eyes, embodying the positivity of the Renaissance without over adornment. I thought that this would be the height of the Vicenza walking tour until....

Was here a few times a month this summer in the day and evening. During the day great views and beverage selection teens and above will enjoy. In the evenings romantic and relaxing nice pre-date night spot for drinks and conversation. Open from summer till November and can get a season pass for 5€ vs 1 time pass for 4€

The centerpiece of Vicenza, designed by Andrea Palladio in the 1500's. It is located in the city center and is close to numerous restaurants, shops, and bars. It is next to the main piazza in Vicenza where there are frequently festivals and open air markets. A place that is a must see for any visit to Vicenza.

You have to pay an entrance fee to get access to the rooftop bar of the Basilica, but then you can visit the enterior of the building which has huge wooden roof that looks like a reversed boat (nice!).
