Beautiful theatre - a UNESCO site - don't miss it! I don't believe I saw anything else like this in Italy.
I didn't know what to expect, and the experience of walking in to this 16th century theatre is almost breathtaking. It has been so well preserved.
I could have sat in this place for hours. The stage was a thing of wonder. The whole theater was beautiful. Don't pass this up.
Amazing space - best thing in Vicenza. You could sit for ages on the wooden steps inside looking at the scene behind the stage while taking lots of photos... Great shop too with lots of cards and posters.
interesting place to visit - stage scene is fantastic, old stadium seating is an experience, courtyard is pleasant and tunnel-walkways are genuine. recommended.
