What better location from which to explore the unparalleled beauty of the many historic sites of Northern Italy? Vicenza is strategically placed between Venice and Verona and within easy reach of all significant tourism destinations.
'Vicenza has all the elegance of Venice, with classic hotels for half the price… Visitors to this slice of northeast Italy generally overlook Vicenza province Let me suggest that you do the reverse. It’s cheaper, the tourist population is smaller — and you can get to the other two “Vs” by train within an hour. Most of all, there is a scattering of lovely hotels in fab locations.'
The Times of London
You can just as easily explore your enchanting surroundings as spend the day in Venice, Verona and Lake Garda, Padua, Milan, Bologna... All are in easy reach, by train, bus or car.
In actual fact, such is the diversity of the Province of Vicenza, that in practice you never run out of truly unmissable things to see and do. From Bassano
town's famous grappa
and wooden bridge, to the medieval castles of Marostica
(home of the original human chess game), to the Monatgues' and Capulets' hill castles at Montecchio (of Romeo and Juliet fame), to the spectacular mountain walks and winter ski slopes of the Alpine Dolomites and Asiago
, to the relaxing thermal spa at Recoaro
, to the enchanting beauty of lake Fimon, to the vineyards and quality wines, to the classical harmony of the Palladian country villas... The Province of Vicenza has all this and much, much more.
