Beautiful building representing one of Pladdios best designs. The building itself is impressive especially when viewed from the top of Monte Berico above Vicenza which I did this morning. The square around the building has some of Vicenza's best people watching. Good place for a...More

This building, with its gorgeous loggias, sits in the heart of Vicenza. At one of its ends, the statue of Palladio, who designed the building, can be found.

At no point did I see any signs saying I couldn’t look over the edge, but I certainly got a telling off very loudly, in front of everyone. Very embarrassing. Never saw the signs on the way back down either! There’s a smoking area at...More

The climb is definitely worth it to walk around the top of the Palladio and see the many sides of Vicenza - just gorgeous. The building had a fascinating architecture exhibition when we visited, so clearly embraces innovative and interesting presentations. There is a roof...More

We decided not to visit the architecture exhibition but did go to the walkway and up to the roof. Please walk the whole way around both if you can. The views are great. Don’t expect a coffee but you can sit in the trendy plastic...More

The "basilica" (not a church, in this case) also has a nice terrace with a great view over the old centre of Vicenza. The internal "salone superiore" can be devoted to some special exhibit with a separate ticket, but the staff may let you peek...More

This is a beautiful building that houses various gold jewellery shops and a market is held in the square surrounding. Worth going for a walk and a look
