Vicenza has wonderful shops! It has a beautiful piazza where you can sit and drink your cappicino as you watch the world go by. It also has the oldest indoor theatre in the world. Or so I was told! It's very small but worth a visit if you can get there! It is quite stunning. It has a tower which you can go inside, and if you climb to the top you will be rewarded with a fantastic view! It's a very pretty and charming town and you will enjoy it! I only spent a day there but would love to go back and have more time...lucky you!

Bassano del Grappa is a lovely nmedieval town to visit, about a 40 min drive from Vicenza. The hotel Ca' Sette is excellent, and there are a lot of wine bars and great shopping!

Have fun

We spent a week near Vicenza last summer (so, different weather!) Vicenza itself we liked a lot, and we also did day trips to Venice and Verona. Other excursions combined countryside and small towns, for instance saw Bassano del Grappa, which is an attractive place and also nearby Asolo (beautiful).

There are several of the most famous villas (Palladio and co) near Bassano too. The problem with the villas is that they have very limited opening hours (often a couple of hours one day a week!). Get up-to-date info from Vicenza tourist office.

Quite by chance we discovered that there were three villas in Costozza di Longare, a few miles south of Vicenza. We visited the gardens of one, peered through the gates at the adjoining one and ate, very well, in the third (restaurant is called Aeolia as it is in Villa Eolia) .

Another trip we enjoyed a lot was to Padua, then through the Euganean Hills to the trio of Monselice, Este and Montagna (walled town).

En route to Vicenza at the beginning we had stopped off at Mantua (Mantova) and visited the Ducal Palace. This turned out to be possibly the high spot of the stay in Italy, perhaps partly because so unexpected. Second biggest palace in Italy (after Vatican), it's vast and full of treasures. Although very different styles it reminded us of the Alhambra and impressed us nearly as much (which is really saying something!).

Dear ivi.adri,

Thank you very much for the interesting information and your willingness to provide further information. As a local, I would like to consult with you on weekend activity (24-26 September) in your region that combines sight-seeing with active elements (such as tracking, river rafting etc).

I thank you in advance for your tips.

Message for ivi.adri - I will be visiting Veneto area once again in a few weeks. My travel plans are to go to Nove (pottery shopping of course!) then to visit Asolo, Basssano, Mariostica, & the wine road before going on to Venice. I am looking for a cute quaint hotel somewhere in or around these towns. Could you help me out> Do you know of any other wonderful walled cities/towns to visit? A hotel in the walled city? Just trying to get more information before I go.

thanks a million.
