A private food tour to admire Palladio's art while tasting traditional food and local wine


Enjoy a typical day like the "vicentini" do! We'll walk in the city center switching between a good Italian coffee with a homemade cake and the beautiful Venetian palaces of Vicenza. We'll visit the typical local market with its lively and colourful atmosphere, hanging around the stalls of fresh fruit and vegetable. From a taste of bacalà (our traditional food made with dried stockfish and olive oil) and the Basilica of Palladio we'll have a delicious lunch prepared in one of the most ancient "ostaria" (Bistrot), finishing on demand with the visit of the Olympic Theatre of Palladio.

Spend half a day in Vicenza like a real vicentino, eating in our everyday Bistrot being surrounded by the Palladian art!

Itinerary

We'll start from Piazza delle Erbe, a secondary square behind the Basilica of Palladio. We'll walk on the ancient Roman paths of Vicenza to get to the old river port area, full of gothic Venetian palaces. On demand, we can then visit the Teatro Olimpico, Palladio's masterpiece. We'll sightsee the small charming streets of Vicenza to get finally in the main square, Piazza dei Signori.
Between a monument and the following, we'll do greedy stop-overs to taste delicacies and traditional food from the area.
