Those who are unfamiliar with the old city centre will be surprised to discover an artistic heritage that in the past inspired famous writers such as Goethe, Camus, Fogazzaro and Goffredo Parise. A must-see is Piazza dei Signori with the Basilica Palladiana and the Loggia del Capitaniato overlooking it. Definitely also not to be missed are the Olimpico Theatre, the Rotonda and the Monte Berico Basilica.
Just over thirty kilometres from Vicenza and located on the banks of the Brenta River, the unmissable Bassano is a city full of natural beauty spots and artistic masterpieces. The symbol of the city is the distinctive wooden bridge designed by Andrea Palladio in 1569. A few minutes from Bassano del Grappa, Marostica is world-famous for the checkerboard paving of its square.
