Tour Overview Tour Overview

An in-depth look at the architecture of Andrea Palladio during the Italian Renaissance. Focusing on the city of Vicenza, Italy, our walking tours of Palladio & Vicenza incorporate a great variety of works by Andrea Palladio including the most famous of al his Palladian buildings - Villa Rotonda.

Our Vicenza walking tours begin with a fascinating walking tour of the historical centre, a city that Palladio transformed with his imposing civic buildings, basilica and aristocratic residences. As we stroll around the streets and back-alleys of Vicenza, we'll discuss the life and times of Palladio and the influences that helped to create his unique form of architecture.

Along with Palladio's Basilica, the highlight of our time in Vicenza will be a visit to the Teatro Olimpico, one of the purest creations of Renaissance architecture in Italy and arguably his most beautiful.

But, the highlight of our Vicenza Walking Tours will be a visit to the Villa Rotonda (interior only open from Fri to Sun between April and October). Palladio's most celebrated work. Its temple like facades, its symmetry along with its natural setting, give the villa an air of splendid perfection.

As you tour the Villa Rotonda your guide will utilize the shape and form of the Villa Rotonda to echo the fundamental principles and logic behind Palladio's style of architecture, providing the perfect conclusion to your private walking tour of Vicenza.

Villa Rotonda interior is open only on Fri, Sat & Sun from April up to first week of November - on other days it is possible to organize a private visit on request (the cost is about 300,00 Euro) - The exterior of the Villa and its gardens can instead be visited on a daily basis excluding Mondays. Olympic theater is open daily, except Mondays.
