Bus to Vicenza

by babbi_it

I'm looking for a bus from Venice or from Verona to Vicenza, Can someone help me?

Re: Bus to Vicenza

by leics

I'd go by train, personally.

http://www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

will give you train times, details and fares in English. Venice>Vicenza is only 13 euro, Verona>Vicenza the same.

However, you will find lots of bus departures from Venice Piazzale Roma to Vicenza listed here (change at Padova):

http://ro.autobus.it/ro/asp/RicercaOrari.asp?User=SITA

I'll searcvh for Verona>Vicenza buses....

Train is, of course, faster than bus but bus will be cheaper.

13 euro is quite expensive for a Venice-Vicenza or Verona-Vicenza, leics. What train category was that? It must have been a Eurostar train. Venice-Vicenza with a regional train will cost 4 or 5 euro.

Re: Bus to Vicenza

by leics

Yes, you're right.....it's 13 euro for the (slightly faster) Frecciabianca.

No idea why I didn't notice the far cheaper regional trains at 4.25 euro.

Even more reason to go by train, imo.

Ok, don't worry... you answer to so many forum postings that uou can be excused :)
I don't think it is worth to spend three times as much, so I suggest taking the regional train for4.25 euro. Moreover, trains are more comfortable than buses in my opinion.

Entirely agree.

Travel Tips for Vicenza

Piazza dei Signori.

by Maurizioago

This square was probably built on the site of an ancient Roman Forum.

Here we see the Basilica, also called Palazzo della Ragione. Originally this was a Gothic structure that was built in the mid 15th century. Palladio designed the two storey loggia around the building a hundred years later. This building was finished in 1614. The Basilica was not built as a church, but as a gathering place for the leaders of the town. Today it is used as an exibition centre and it also houses some shops.

A 82 meters high and slim clock tower stands near the Basilica. This was originally built in the 12th century.

Another building you can see in this square is the Loggia del Capitaniato. This also was designed by Palladio.

At Piazza dei Signori there are some cafes, shops and the tourist office.

Andrea Palladio.

by Maurizioago

Andrea Palladio (his real name was Andrea di Pietro della Gondola) was born in 1508 in Padua and died in 1580. As a child he worked as an apprentice for a local stonecutter. In 1524 he moved to Vicenza where he met Gian Giorgio Trissino; a nobleman and an architect. Count Trissino tutored him and gave him the name Palladio, that comes from the Greek god Pallae Athena.

Palladio found inspiration for its country houses, urban palaces and churches in the architecture of ancient Greece and Rome.

There are around 23 works by Palladio in Vicenza and surrounding areas.

Palladio and his work - Palazzo Porto

by croisbeauty

Thanks to Andrea Palladio's work, Vicenza became famous throughout Europe and world aswell. His work enriched the area giving a new look to the town and a new direction in architecture to the rest of Europe and the whole world. This is a part of Palladio's work, Palazzo Porto located in Piazza Castello, unfortunatelly it was never finished. The palace was intended to grow to seven bays in length and have a courtyard concluding in an exedra, as analysis of the surviving walls demonstrates. It is unclear what circumstances halted the construction.

Passagiatta Along Corso Palladio

by rubbersoul75

Passagiatta is the evening stroll many Italians practice Religiously. Usually around 7-8 in the evening, as the sun is setting and the temps cool a bit in the summer. Recommend you join in wherever you are in Italy. Take the walk anywhere in the pedestrian area in Vicenza, a main pedestrian drag for the Passagiatta is Corso Palladio, running East West just north of the Piazza Dei Signori. Teatro Olympico (East) to the City Walls (West).

You'll see the locals young and old, children, caffes, and some great Palladian Architecture along this stretch and the side streets.

See the map on our Vicenza Page for location of Corso Palladio

Soave-the town activity

by BruceDunning

The walk from one end of the town to the other is only 6 long blocks. It is quiet and peaceful at this time of the year. Look into the many little inlets for adventure. The main street is Via Roma, and the other parallel street is Corso Vittoro Emannule.
