Basilica Palladiana, Vicenza
(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Look to the loggia of Basilica Palladiana to find one of the first examples of what became known as the Palladian window. After the original version of this iconic building partially collapsed, local architect Andrea Palladio was commissioned to rebuild it in 1549. Check inside to see if an exhibition is running or if you can access the bar. To visit Basilica Palladiana on your trip to Vicenza, use our Vicenza tour planner.

  • Penultimate day of opening to the public of its terrace extraordinary ... beautiful view wonderful basilica is worth the trip ... go there when open of course ... a scathing criticism to opening hours very restrictive and very short evening!

  • Impressive building with copper, clearly visible from the viewpoint of the shrine of our Lady of Mount Berico, occupies a large part of the beautiful Piazza dei Signori. Already the Palazzo della Ragione in Gothic style, Palladio enriched to 2 series of elegant loggias that helped ensure the sustainability of the building. Above them a nice terrace (with restaurant) which offers a beautiful view over the city. Access is closed in the late-fall/winter.

  • We were lucky enough to visit it in its full glory outside any art exhibition, naked and beautiful. The Pavilion located on the first floor, huge and beautiful with its 50 meters long and 20 wide by 25 tall wooden barrel vault roof looks like an inverted ship and the renovations fidelity have returned in full splendor. Climbing further a plan you can stroll on one of the roofs in the world, with its copper, green and shining. The view on the front square makes you feel privileged, as you gaze out all around the rooftops and streets of a beautiful city and a bit hidden from the general public
