Vicenza is another city that you can't afford to miss. It's famous especially for its buildings designed by the architect Palladio.

His last work was the Teatro Olimpico (Olympic Theatre), which was finished by Vincenzo Scamozzi after Palladio's death.

Palazzo Chiericati is another building designed by Palladio which today is home to the municipal museum. Another of Palladio's buildings is the mannerist palace of Valmarana Braga. In 1594, Palladio began to restore the present Basilica according to a classical style.

An unrivalled masterpiece is the Rotonda, located in the hills of Vicenza.
