This is a truly beautiful medieval church amidst the sweeping Palladian architecture which pops up everywhere in Vicenza . Each makes you appreciate the other. The fine Palladian basilica a few minutes walk away built as a town hall and this lovely older church contrast...More

There's a lovely enclosed garden round the back of the church; turn right as you face the main door and walk anti-clockwise round the church till you find a small gate. I tranquil, shady spot. Enjoy.

I truly disagree with the previous reviewer's comment that this church is "average". I cannot fathom how one can describe this cathedral in such a mundane way. Perhaps this lad was having a bad day, I don't know. But don't be put off by that...More

It has got a nice piazza in front with a fountain and coffee places and some sort of sculpture the kids played on. As churches go in Italy it is quite average, nice enough to peek into.

This is good example of Gothic architecture in central Vicenza. Best of all it is free. Started in the 1200s, it was later used as a stable by Napoleon. Free wifi and some great wine bars in the piazza.
