Reviewed September 15, 2017

We visited Vicenza to see friends while we were staying in Padua and we were wonderfully surprised by the beauty of the old city. So many of the buildings were designed by the architect Palladio that Vicenza is called "The City of Palladio". It is a Unesco World Heritage Site. The Basilica Palladiana has a great terrace bar high above the city.
There are some lovely bars, shops and restaurants in the town and many beautiful architectural sights to see both in the town and around, particularly churches. In Osteria Monelli on C.tra Ponte San Paolo we had the local speciality, Baccala (air dried fish) with polenta which was delicious. We also visited the town's rugby club, Rangers Rugby Vicenza.
The best view of the city is from the romantic Piazzale della Vittoria in front of the Santuario di Monte Berico (Church of St Mary of the Mount). Take the wonderful drive or walk up and down the long colonnaded Viale Dierci Guigno to reach the view. Vicenza is well worth a stop.

It's the location that makes it so special, but also the cloister and several high quality paintings.

The Basilica is nothing to write home about the views from the parking lot in front of the Basilica are fantastic. Here are the coordinates for getting to the parking lot: 45° 32’ 07 .99” N 11° 32’ 42.33” E.

After walking all over the old town area for two days, we drove up to Monte Berico on a beautiful sunny day. Obviously this is a very popular place because we had trouble finding a parking place (perhaps it was because people were at Mass Sunday at 4 pm?). There is a spectacular view at the top - it was fun to pick out the palazzos and churches and towers we had seen while walking.

the more you walk up the better you feel“Well the location was amazing”
it's quite a walk up but it is worth it and you can always grab a coffee at the cafe right by it. The porticos are amazing on the way up
