Just for the position of this basilica alone its worth a look . Perched up there on the top of the hill with a commanding view over Vicenza . At the top of the famous stairs by Palladio its an important place . Keep some small change for the beggars there , outside the church who will bless you if... More

A very ornate church with red lanterns at the altar. Well worth the visit. One particular thing about this church is that, when mass is over, you can go behind the altar to see "La madonna". Many people touch or kiss the virgin located there and many have left gifts "to thank her for an answered prayer". there is a... More

The church and the piazza at Monte Berico is well worth the visit. Even though there are lots of signs pointing the way, it can be tricky driving up the hill from the city. Once you are there though, the view is great. There is ample parking and it seems like this is one of those places people meet to... More

Monte Berico is the highest point in the City of Vicenza. The view is breathtaking, best after the rain when it is not so hazy. The church is classic Baroque with an almost Eastern Orthodox flavor. Visiting the church is free, though difficult when Mass is going on. Additionally, it is closed midday for riposo, so best to check before... More

You can not go wrong seeking out this gorgeous place! Not only is it truly beautiful, but it's beauty spreads warmth around it like the rays of sunshine. I recommend walking from downtown up along a covered walkway that stands as one spectacular entrance way to the Santuario. Once to arrive to the area you can see the best view... More

We drove to the top of the hill and found parking easily. The church is packed with wonderful art and sculptures - a feast for the eyes. We were so pleased we decided to go there. The loggia across the road is amazing - it's a long walk, but I'm sure it's worth while.

Not only a gorgeous building, but also a nice walk until you get there, and then a panoramic view of Vicenza from above.

The church was closed, when we were there, but the panoramic view over Vicenza and its surroundings from the Piazza della Vittorio is more than worth the trip up the hill (certainly in the evening light). the porticoed walkways on the way uphill are remarkable.

Apart from the views of the surroundings from the hilltop and the viewing point, the church itself and the monastery are worth visiting too. The impressive colonnade is worth walking up if it's not too hot, otherwise you can take the bus uphill and walk down.
