Not alot of parking. Waited for Saturday to see the inside and no pictures allowed!!! Cute Villa, 10 euros to enter. 39 minutes and you've seen the whole thing. Stunning setting.

Andrea Palladio is widely regarded as the most influential architect of the 16th century, and this building exemplifies why. About a 45 minute walk from Vicenza train station, a must-see when in the Veneto region in my opinion. Interiors shot attached.

Well worth a visit. Walkable fromVicenza. Despite the miserable staff the architecture and magnificence of the house, views across the fields, made up for them and their unhelpful ness.

A beautiful example of a Palladio inspired villa. It is amazing. It is only open two days a week and pictures are not allowed inside. It is still a must see when in Vicenza.

This is the archetypal villa that brought the idea of the Pantheon in Rome to the scale of a family home. This building influenced Thomas Jefferson when he designed Monticello, his home, and the University of Virginia library. The setting is fantastic (especially during the...More
