This is the archetypal villa that brought the idea of the Pantheon in Rome to the scale of a family home. This building influenced Thomas Jefferson when he designed Monticello, his home, and the University of Virginia library. The setting is fantastic (especially during the...More

Beautiful villa design in the countryside. Try to go on Wednesday when the interior is open for touring. Perfect quick stop for architecture buffs.

Even if you can’t go in, drive by. This was Jefferson’s inspiration and continues to influence architects today.

Magnificent example of Palladian architecture a bit out of the main tourist area, kind of interesting but only for about 15-20 min or so

Easy to get to from Vicenza - in fact we walked back to town. This is Palladio's masterpiece. On Saturdays you can view the interior - while the furnishings are more modern the interior plan is impressive. Walk around the villa and get a perspective...More

Google maps is probably the best way to see a walking map. I don't recommend walking from Vinenza city center or even from the train station - it's a far walk from either. There is a bus which will drop you off on the main... More
