The maestro constructed an absolutely wonderful villa, on a low hillside, not far from the centre of town. It is very special but a very unsatisfactory visit. Rooms on only one floor can be visited, so a journey by bus or taxi (€7) plus entry...More

Arguably the most beautiful house ever built. There is something extremely harmonious about this house and for people who like looking at houses it is Disneyland. Those who mostly come to see an important architectural monument might be annnoyed by the inconvenient parking and limited...More

The place is managed by amateurs. First, there's no parking and many people get tickets or park really far, even for old people. Second, they don't accept credit, only cash. If you don't have cash (like us) - the closest ATM is 1km walking distance,...More

One would imagine that most who choose to visit Vicenza for touring are already interested in Palladio, and even if not, this is such a famous spot that it truly has to be considered as an obligatory stop while here.#8 bus from the train station,...More

We went in a cab to get there, but walked back into town. The house itself was not open when we went, just the grounds - but there is an entrance fee payable at the gate regardless. The grounds are pleasant, as is the view...More

Inside is only open on Wednesday and Saturday, and then for limited times, but then it is well worth the effort. The symmetry, the decorations, the views and the grounds. Marvellous.

The Villa Rotonda is a very impressive building that is worth visiting. The niggles are: they don't allow photography at all, they have limited opening hours (privately owned), postcards are very expensive, and the ticket prices are a bit steep (€10/person, with no discounts for...More

Google maps is probably the best way to see a walking map. I don't recommend walking from Vinenza city center or even from the train station - it's a far walk from either. There is a bus which will drop you off on the main... More
