Villa la Rotonda, Vicenza
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Tourist Spots
Villa la Rotonda, a Renaissance villa outside of Vienza, dates back 500 years. Goethe praised it, saying that architectural art had perhaps never before reached such a level of magnificence. Designed by Andrea Palladio for Bishop Paolo Almerica, the villa went through the hands of the Capra family before being opened to the public in 1986 by the current owners, the family of Count Valmarana. That family currently lives here. Marketing events, special dinners, and cultural happenings take place at this attraction. Note that no photography is allowed, not even without flash.

Capolavoro palladiano da non perdere
Luisi IcazaSuper expensive €10 and not there is nothing to see! A dome painted overrated and 3 rooms with ugly and contemporary furniture. NOT WORTH VISITING INSIDE!show original
Manuel SpigolonThe Interior of the villa are breathtakingly beautiful, although worth mentioning are the dining room, the living room and the main hall with a dome. The 2nd floor is closed. Considering the cost of the visit doesn't offer much compared other villas with guides and explanatory signs.show original
Danoys GonzalezBeautiful! We visited this gem of Venetian mainland and is nothing short of sensational! Suggest you inform yourself before your visit on cultural activities in the hinterland of the sixteenth century (Trissino, Palladium, classism etc) in order to appreciate better the essence.show original
