Full description
Enjoy a private tour and explore a lesser-known jewel of the Veneto region, the beautiful city of Vicenza. With a dedicated guide, enter the unique Olympic Theater, the first enclosed theater in the world. Constructed by architect Andrea Palladio between 1580 and 1585, it boasts interiors made of wood, stucco and plaster, and is now included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.    

Next, walk through the Vicenza historic center to see its most important sites, such as Chiericati Palace, the "Ca’ d’Oro," Piazzetta Santo Stefano, Sesso-Zen-Fontana Palace, Negri-De Salvi Palace, Thiene Palace, Contra’ Porti, Porto-Festa, Porto-Colleoni, and the Porto-Breganze e Barbaran-Porto Palaces.  

Visit the beautiful Piazza dei Signori to marvel at the great Basilica Palladiana, one of Andrea Palladio’s masterpieces. Since 1994, this basilica, together with other Palladian buildings in and around Vicenza, has been part of the City of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
