Cultural activities

Vicenza is a friendly city, it is comfortable and pleasant to move by walking or by bike; in 20 minutes you can reach every corner of the city, which is linked through many cycle lanes to the suburbs, where you can enjoy the countryside or the hills. Many Vicentini use to spend their free time in the open air: walking through the city centre, relaxing in the parks, having/sipping an aperitive in a bar.

The cultural offering in Vicenza is wide and it is easy to find something interesting to do in order to deepen the knowledge of the area: visiting the Teatro Olimpico, the art gallery in Palazzo Chiericati and the one in Palazzo Leoni Montanari, walking under the arches up to Monte Berico to observe the city from the top and visiting the Museo del Risorgimento e della Resistenza, are just some activities to do in our beautiful city.

Vicenza is in the hearth of Veneto region, the Italian region with the biggest foreign tourists’ amount per year, thanks also to Venice, one of the most visited cities in the world, and to Verona, the city of love par excellence.

With a cheap ticket and in 50 minutes by train, from Vicenza you reach Venice main station. An hour’s walk through calli, bridges and gondoliers bringing tourists in the canals, and you arrive in Piazza San Marco, visited yearly by 25 million people.

A little bit shorter is the trip to Verona, the city where Shakespeare set the most famous love story of all time, Romeo and Juliet. Visiting Juliet’s balcony, crossing the Adige through the romantic bridge Ponte Pietra, walking to Piazza Bra and admiring the Arena are just some of the many activities to do in this wonderful city.
