Meeting Point: 8.15 am, Venezia Santa Lucia Train Station, outside the main entrance
Today Vicenza is one of Italian cities with the highest number of monumental complexes compared to its extension. This makes it a real unexpected jewel to those visitors who take a walk in the old town center.
A great part of the architectural works by Palladio was created in the Vicenza territory, starting from 1540. The architect worked without distinction both for private and public clients, thus helping to profoundly change the city’s aspect.
