The heart of the Renaissance


Vicenza is the city of one of the most famous architects in Italian history, Andrea Palladio, and during the tour we can visit many of his marvellous creations: palazzos, monuments and the Teatro Olimpico, built in the late 16th century, the oldest covered theatre in the world based on a study of ancient Roman theatres.
You'll be amazed by the number of elegant streets, cafés and romantic corners you can find in Vicenza. Together with the Palladian villas, Vicenza is a Unesco World Heritage site.

* On Mondays, the main landmarks are closed.
* This tour can be matched with tour #404757 "The villas of Palladio and the paintings of Tiepolo".
