This is far more a villa than a castle, but it is a striking example of a Venetian Gothic villa, very different from the standard Palladian villa. The frescoes are very well done and the guide does an excellent job explaining them. The stable is supposedly the most beautiful in Europe, and I have certainly not seen anything that can top it. Well worth a visit.

By far the most interesting and most cultural, historical things-to-do in Thiene. Definitely worst taking the visit with the tour and discover the splendour of the apartment and rooms inside the castle/villa.

We were staying in nearby Vicenza and on the advice of a friend, we visited Thiene for the day. It's a quaint town which surrounds the impressive Thiene Castle. I am so happy that we were able to visit because from the moment we entered, we were immersed in history. The Thiene family still owns the castle and they take pride in their heritage and have made this history accessible to the public via hourly tours. Verify the tour times prior to visiting. Next time we are going to book an overnight at the Castle so that we can experience staying in such an historical location. We really had a marvelous visit and encourage anyone in the area to make visiting the Castle a priority!

Could there be a better place to experience history?
In this castle you can be an ordinary visitor, when you join the tourist groups who daily admire its art treasures, or you can even choose to stay with your family for the night and spend some more time inside these walls, which seem to have preserved it from the world’s decay.
I am lucky to have done both.

his is a place to visit if you want to live like a lord for a day or so. What is nice about Thiene is that it is only 25 minutes drive from Vicenza, but you really are in a genuine local town rather than a tourist place. The restaurants and cafes are a short walk away and are full of the buzz of an Italian town. We reckoned we were the only people in the restaurants and cafes who were not Italian. And so they welcomed us more than usual !
The welcome was outstanding and the castello, in which we were given a comprehensive private tour, was amazing. Ancient frescoes in the principal rooms and in our bedroom, and splendour indeed. I got airs above my station. Our bedroom was one of the main bedrooms of the ancient building and I have never slept in such a room before. It was enormous. The sunrise was beautiful and the sound of the church bells quite charming.
We took breakfast in a friendly cafe around the corner.
The only minor drawback was that, in February, it was just a little cold, but I would not use this as a reason for not staying.
