Go there on Saturday or Wednesday, so you can also see the inside of this architectural gem - frescoes and very interesting furniture. Park around is nice to relax.

We managed to find the local bus to see this lovely Palladian villa. We were the only tourists and everyone on the bus was keen to make sure we got off at the right stop. Roadworks covered the sign post so we did wander around...More

If you love Palladio or interested in his design, then you have to see this building. The interior decorations, not designed by Palladio, are hideous, but well worth a view as they are so over the top. But for an architecture fan, this is a...More

Perfect for anyone that's interested in Italian Architecture although I think It's quite a trek being just outside Vicenza centre, so unless you like walking and I don't get a bus from Vicenza Station or a taxi, but it's well worth a visit. I found...More

Andrea Palladio is widely regarded as the most influential architect of the 16th century, and this building exemplifies why. About a 45 minute walk from Vicenza train station, a must-see when in the Veneto region in my opinion. Interiors shot attached.

Well worth a visit. Walkable fromVicenza. Despite the miserable staff the architecture and magnificence of the house, views across the fields, made up for them and their unhelpful ness.

Google maps is probably the best way to see a walking map. I don't recommend walking from Vinenza city center or even from the train station - it's a far walk from either. There is a bus which will drop you off on the main... More

Depending on how much you like walking you may walk the distance of about the two miles mentioned above, but if you are a family I would prefer taking a taxi to La Rotunda. Remember to see the opening hours for the inside of... More
