After years of restoration, the Basilica is open to the public.
For the first time I went up to the roof thanks to the comfortable interior stairs. There is also the elevator for who can't do the stairs.
Access to the basilica is limited by volunteers as not to crowd the rooms of the beautiful monument. I waited 15 minutes to enter the monument. On the roof of the Basilica there is a small bar and same tables. In the evening there are concerts of jazz or live music suitable to the elegant place. The terrace is very large and going around you can see the view of all the city, from Piazza dei Signori to the church of Monte Berico. I drank a classical Spritz and I enjoyed the beautiful sunset, in the shadow of the bell tower and the lion of San Marco, the symbols of the historic Venetian domination in Vicenza and all the areas around. This place is an unique view of the beautiful Vicenza.
