Palazzo Chiericati was designed by Andrea Palladio. Its construction begun in 1551. It was completed only at the end of the XVII century. It houses the city museum with lots of paintings by many artists. Among these you'll see works by Veronese, Tintoretto and Tiepolo.
Teatro Olimpico was Palladio's last work. Its building started in 1580. Palladio died six months later; then it was completed by his son Silla and Vincenzo Scamozzi in 1585. The interior of this theater was built in wood and plaster. The stage represents the seven streets of Thebes. Teatro Olimpico is currently the seat for shows in summer.
The palace was designed by Palladio in 1550 for Girolamo Chiericati and the construction works started soon after he finished the plans.
Following Girolamo's death, the works passed under his son's directions, which also took care of the south wing decoration.
The western section of the courtyard was built in the 19th century.
The two-story building has a continuous loggia on the ground floor and an upper section with a closed central section with two lateral loggias.
The interior is still adorned with 16th century decorations and frescoes. Since 1838 the palace is home to the city art museum.
Opening hours: Tuesday - Sunday: 9:00 – 17:00
