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 route builder app .

  • Great city, great artistically, historically fascinating, I was passing but I couldn't go over in one of the most beautiful squares in Italy

  • This is another outstanding ancient architecture. A walk around it is relaxing on a summer evening. The restaurants around it with their coffee, beer, wine or the gelaterie full of fresh ice cream. It...  more »

  • Amazing building in Vicenza's city centre. This in in Piazza dei Signori which is surrounded by other historical buildings. At Christmas the whole square is illuminated and the Christmas market attracts many people to this place. Hot chocolate, mulled wine and local food to go available at every corner and to warm us up!
  • One of Palladio's most interesting works. Located on Piazza dei Signori. In summer, the terrace on the second floor opens.
  • Was nice. They have a Jazz bar in there. Drinks are outrageously expensive though.
  • Lots of high quality local shops around the piazza. Interesting exhibits periodically in the basilica. On market days you can shop the vendors who set up tents in and around the piazza.
  • An architectural gem. A public space to be used by all for everything. Court room, assembly, communal living room, housing shops and halls. Wonderful propotions so it sits nicely in the middle of the main piazza in spite of being of huge measures. Loved it!
