If you enjoy Palladian architecture, you should not miss the opportunity to visit Villa Capra, aka la Rotonda. It is a must-see for all travelers to the Veneto. It is easy to get to from downtown Vicenza whether by car or bike. I moved away...More

One would imagine that most who choose to visit Vicenza for touring are already interested in Palladio, and even if not, this is such a famous spot that it truly has to be considered as an obligatory stop while here.#8 bus from the train station,...More

We went in a cab to get there, but walked back into town. The house itself was not open when we went, just the grounds - but there is an entrance fee payable at the gate regardless. The grounds are pleasant, as is the view...More

Inside is only open on Wednesday and Saturday, and then for limited times, but then it is well worth the effort. The symmetry, the decorations, the views and the grounds. Marvellous.

The Villa Rotonda is a very impressive building that is worth visiting. The niggles are: they don't allow photography at all, they have limited opening hours (privately owned), postcards are very expensive, and the ticket prices are a bit steep (€10/person, with no discounts for...More

Go there on Saturday or Wednesday, so you can also see the inside of this architectural gem - frescoes and very interesting furniture. Park around is nice to relax.

We managed to find the local bus to see this lovely Palladian villa. We were the only tourists and everyone on the bus was keen to make sure we got off at the right stop. Roadworks covered the sign post so we did wander around...More

If you love Palladio or interested in his design, then you have to see this building. The interior decorations, not designed by Palladio, are hideous, but well worth a view as they are so over the top. But for an architecture fan, this is a...More

Google maps is probably the best way to see a walking map. I don't recommend walking from Vinenza city center or even from the train station - it's a far walk from either. There is a bus which will drop you off on the main... More
