Tour description

Welcome to Vicenza, Let's visit this wonderful city together, discovering all the highlights such as monuments, squares, narrow streets, and much more!
Vicenza is the city of Andrea Palladio, the neoclassical architect par excellence, who has left an indelible mark on the city for example for the whole world; we will find his works everywhere in the city: square, palaces, churches, and even public gardens.
Our meeting will take place at Despair in Viale Roma 7, and from there we will continue visiting the Salvi Gardens, a beautiful public garden where you can see one of Andrea Palladio's first works; subsequently, we will continue to Piazza Castello, where only the tower remains of the ancient castle that protected the city; we will then continue to Piazza delle Poste and Piazza Duomo, the religious center of the city with a visit to the church; then we will discover the alleys that have made the city center a UNESCO site, with its rivers and bridges.
Corso Andrea Palladio is the shopping street of Vicenza, but also the street with the major Palladian monuments: Palladio Trissino, Palazzo Bonin, etc .. which with the nearby Contrà Porti forms a crossroads rich in monuments and history.
We will conclude our tour in Piazza Dei Signori, the largest city square, and a real living room in Vicenza.

Interessante giro nel centro storico di Vicenza,arricchito di aneddoti e curiosità.La passeggiata dura circa due ore e si snoda anche nelle vie meno turistiche per avere modo di osservare architettura e scorci più insoliti
