Vicenza, the city of Palladio. The city is silently overlooked by the majestic Sanctuary of the Madonna di Monte Berico, which houses a splendid painting by Paolo Veronese titled “La cena di San Gregorio Magno”. Legend has it that the Madonna appeared here twice to free the city of a terrible plague. Not far off, a dirt road leads to Villa Rotonda, one of Palladio’s most famous Venetian Villas, with its square-based dome and large loggia, which features Ionic columns reminiscent of an imposing an ancient temple. Vicenza is home to numerous late-renaissance architectural work designed by Palladio himself, the presence of which has resulted in the city being named as a UNESCO world heritage site. Most of them are within the city centre. Palazzo Chiericati, which houses the civic museum, is a perfect starting point to discover all the attractions that this area has to offer. In the historic centre, be sure to visit the church of Santa Corona, which was the symbol of the city of Vicenza for centuries. While the church’s construction was begun by the Dominicans 1260, it was later reworked and ultimately completed during the 15thcentury.
