Vicenza Italy is a large city located in northeastern Italy, and it is filled with museums, art galleries, churches, and villas. It is situated about thirty-seven miles west of the famed city of Venice and one hundred and twenty miles east of Milan. It is a very vibrant and successful city; this is because of its textile and steel industries. Vicenza contributes immensely to Italy's economy with it producing about one-fifth of the gold and jewelry in the country. What also makes Vicenza so unique is its stunning architecture. These buildings were designed in the 16th-century by Andrea Palladio, a famous architect. Let’s explore Vicenza and all there is to see and do.
The buildings in Vicenza are one of the things that make it such an exciting place to visit.

It is one of the first buildings in Italy that used the Renaissance structure; it shows the Palladian Window design and has big arches to walk under. Right across the street is the Museo Palladino. This museum features an array of old relics and artifacts with detailed facts throughout the museum to learn along the way. Visiting these sights is a great way to immerse yourself in the history of the city.
