Just from the parking lot area has so much to offer! There is a beautiful view of the city, the Cathedral, a very small park, and with a little walk away is a wonderful restaurant. Definitely a must see when you visit Vicenza!

When I arrived,the Church was engulfed in heavy fog and hardly visible from the outside. Most entrances were blocked as they were being washed. I was able nonetheless to get inside and was shown the Cena from Veronese in a dark room where you could not take pictures.The picture was hard to see and drab. A big disappointment ,go to... More

The story behind the Basilica is wonderful but it is the art the really is incredible. The fresco of the pregnant Madonna is one of my favorite pieces of art period. Absolutely breathtaking.

Well worth visiting. On a par with the similar high spot south of Florence that has a copy of David. We found that the bar on the left hand side when reaching the church has a garden with a fantastic view while avoiding the sellers who are in the main car park area.

I visited this place back in summer 2009. It's very beautiful place up the hill and offers great views of city with stunning villas in background. You can visit sanctuary and walk up stairs and relax and have good picnic with family. My younger nephew really enjoyed there. It's one place not to be missed when you are in vicenza

It is a beautiful area. Must see in Vicenza. You can enjoy a wonderful view of the city of Vicenza, walk the gardens, enjoy the architecture, visit the museum that kids will enjoy, and more importantly, visit the Sanctuary. It is amazingly beautiful to see and learn about the history of the place. Gift shops and restaurants in the area... More

I have been to Monte Berico many times when I lived in Vicenza. It had been 2 years since I had been back and I was showing a couple of my friends around and one of the places I knew they would love was the Basilica and the view from Monte Berico. There are a couple of restaurants that you... More

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
