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

Among the dozens magnificent buildings strewn all over Vicenza by the Renaissance star architect Andrea Palladio, the Basilica is certainly the most stunning, with its loggias and marble statues. The adjacent Bissara tower (over 80 metres high) and the two St. Mark columns frame the...More

If you need a single reason to visit Vicenza, this is it. Entering the square the perfection of the Palladian building is breathtaking. We also wer lucky to be able to visit the very interesting Van Gogh exhibit inside.
