Overview

Our E-Bike tour explores the surroundings of Vicenza passing through 11 Villas, 7 of which are Unesco Palladian Heritage.

The experience includes a special navigation system and an itinerant vocal narration: the guiding voice will be the spirit of Andrea Palladio, who retraces his history through the evolution of his villas (entrances excluded).

The Network of the owners of the Palladian Villas invites you to immerse yourself in an original, active and healthy way in the history and landscapes of the Unesco Heritage that made our architect the most influential in history.

In the depths of the Vicenza countryside, sumptuous residences follow one another as far as the eye can see in a widespread eco-museum, admiring the gaze of every traveler at the forms in which the teachings of the Ancients have shaped the country house of the nobleman, which from a medieval castle gradually becomes the villa Palladian, thanks to the genius of a modest, prodigious stonemason.

Itinerary

  • Villa Trissino Trettenero

    Splendid Venetian villa registered as a World Heritage Site since 1994, which belonged to the family of Giangiorgio Trissino, who inspired Palladio (note: time to reach stage and stop) Accessible from the outside

    50 minutes
  • Villa Caldogno

    Extraordinary Palladian work commissioned by the great architect by the Caldogno counts (note: time to reach stage and stop)

    1 hour
  • Villa Da Porto Pedrotti

    Monumental and splendid, its attribution to Palladio is controversial, but certain is its belonging to that Golden Age of Vicenza which dotted the city and its countryside with architectural pearls recognized as a World Heritage Site (note: time to reach stage and stop) Accessible from the outside

    30 minutes
  • Villa Da Porto Casarotto

    Imposing eighteenth-century villa that testifies to the longevity of the Palladian legacy, the living and germinating force of the Italian Neoclassical (note: time to reach stage and stop).

    20 minutes
  • Villa Valmarana Bressan

    Unmistakable Palladian original among the first works of the architect, also included in the UNESCO World Heritage (note: time to reach stage and stop). Accessible from the outside

    50 minutes
  • Villa Thiene, Valmarana - World Heritage Site

    Another pearl between Giulio Romano and Palladio (note: time to reach stage and stop). Accessible from the outside

    35 minutes
  • Villa Tacchi di Quinto

    Even the two Villas of Quinto, the sixteenth-century Villa Thiene and the eighteenth-century Villa Tacchi, dialogue in the suburban landscape, giving us a precious testimony of how Palladio's legacy has been able to survive strongly in the Vicenza countryside, continuing over the centuries to contribute in painting the face of the territory (note: time to reach stage and stop). Accessible from the outside

    45 minutes
  • A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994, the villa owned by the Curti family is a fine example of the eternity of the works of Palladian production, inspiration and legacy. Restored to its former glory, it now houses an agricultural and tourist activity as it did then (note: time to reach stage and stop). Accessible from the outside

    30 minutes
  • Villa Gazzotti Grimani - World Heritage Site

    Villa Gazzotti is a Venetian villa located in Vicenza in the Bertesina area designed by Andrea Palladio between 1542 and 1543. Subjected over time to various tampering related to agricultural use and uninhabited for years, this work appears to be in a state of deterioration and needs an overall restoration (note: time to reach stage and stop). Accessible from the outside

    25 minutes
  • Villa La Rotonda by Andrea Palladio - World Heritage Site

    This breathtaking tour could only end with the work that consecrated Palladio's genius revealing his genius (note: time to reach stage and stop).
