  • The Basilica Palladiana of Vicenza is one of the buildings more emblemaaticos of the Renaissance and the history of world art. Live it, i.e., go up to the rooftop bar to have a drink, eat at one of the restaurants that are inside, and of course walk through its magnificent porticos and by the ancient Gothic Loggia that houses in its interior, and of course its excessive beauty from every angle of the elegant piazza, is a memorable experience. Palladio was touched, inspired by the gods, was to who writes these lines the greatest of all time. Since then I have wanted to come back to this beautiful city, a jewel, World Center of architecture.

  • This city never ceases to amaze me where you want that you look at and time something that amazes you. This basilica is slightly different to the one known as simply spectacular basilica.

  • Leaving aside the historicity of the place and its beauty ... my husband and I stopped in for a drink ... 2 spritz ... by the total number of €9 ... the price is if at 2 chips and a few peanuts served had removed a few snacks in more ... instead nothing ... also €9 there I spend in a place it deserves and certainly not for simple plastic tables ... ah ... Let us not forget ... in no small table wipes to wipe their hands were. present. as del. rest. all bars where the spritz you pay la.met à are present.

  • The Basilica Palladiana is a Renaissance building in the central Piazza dei Signori, designed by a young Andrea Palladio and in 2014 it won the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage. It had a quite long restoration period over the past years and they've made a fantastic work both to the restoration of the building and the new lightnings which gives to the structure a gorgeous atmosphere at night. It's now used for temporary art expositions which gather paintings from famous painters from the most well-known museum all over the world (Van Gogh, Monet, e.g.). A very charming and elegant bar has been open on the loggia's roof since last year and it's accessible over the summer period. It's my favourite building in Vicenza and it's definitely worthwhile a visit. I very strongly recommend it.
  • Like all the historic buildings in the region, it has great architectural style and is an imposing building.
  • Gorgeous building and great museum. In the summer they usually have a bar on the roof with great views over the city
  • Centr of vicenza
  • Fantastic tower with the clock.
