Known as the city of Andrea Palladio, it is a destination for cultural tourism with flows from all over Italy and even abroad. It is also an important Italian industrial and economic centre. The places we recommend visiting are undoubtedly the splendid architecture of the Paduan master Andrea Palladio. The Basilica Palladiana, a public building overlooking Piazza dei Signori in Vicenza. Its name is linked to the Renaissance architect who redesigned the Palazzo della Ragione by adding the famous white marble serliana loggias to the pre-existing Gothic building. In his Italian Journey, Wolfgang von Goethe wrote after seeing it: ‘It is impossible to describe the impression Palladio’s Basilica makes…. “. Palazzo Chiericati is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site like many other buildings in Vicenza. It is a Renaissance building designed in 1550 as the aristocratic residence of the patron, Count Girolamo Chiericati, by the architect Andrea Palladio. The Teatro Olimpico, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the first and oldest permanent covered theatre of the modern era. The architect Palladio’s last work, it is considered one of his greatest masterpieces. The theatre is still used today for performances and concerts. Finally, the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Monte Berico dominates the city of Vicenza from the hill to the south-west of the city. It consists of a church in Gothic style and a second in Classical and Baroque style. The Sanctuary was built following two apparitions of the Madonna to a peasant girl in 1426.
