An area of Italy too often missed. Italy’s most famous architect, Andrea Palladio, was born and lived most of his life in Vicenza. The Palladian style dominates this area of Italy—with beautiful mansions and villas stretching from the banks of the Brenta through Vicenza. Many of these villas are now open to the public and well worth visiting—we have a special guide who will make these villas come alive. And of course, the Veneto, aside from its charming, elegant cities (Vicenza, Verona and Padova—all worth a stop) has great wines. We can arrange a full day excursion of these wineries—often in antique castles and towers. It is a fabulous way to combine some great wines, delicious food and beautiful scenery.
