Vicenza

The City of Gold

Vicenza is a nice size town and without a doubt filled with some of the best examples of Italian Renaissance architecture. The force behind the architectural importance of Vicenza is a man by the name of Palladio, who was born Andrea di Pietro, in Padua, 1508.

Whether or not you are a fan of architecture, you’ll surely appreciate some of the gems Vicenza has to offer. It is small enough to get around easily on foot and is a very comfortable and manageable place to spend some time. It’s large enough to include some good shopping and restaurants, and the city’s location on the main Northern Italy train line between Padova/Padua and Verona, makes it a convenient stop for train travelers.

Some of the major sites to see include:
- Corso Andrea Palladio - an elegant pedestrian strip lined with many palaces to view
- Teatro Olimpico – A magnificent theatre designed by Palladio, it was his final and perhaps most impressive work. It’s also Europe’s oldest surviving indoor theatre.
- Santa Corona - An impressive church built in 1261 to house a thorn from the supposed relic of the crown of thorns during the Passion of the Christ.
