Hotel in Montecchio Maggiore

To Visit

Palladian villas, stately buildings, beautiful hilly landscapes and centers of faith: there are many things to see and places to visit in Vicenza and its surroundings. This land deserves to be discovered with the calm and pleasure that the charm of these places can offer even to the most demanding traveler.

Montecchio Maggiore

The charm of Montecchio Maggiore, a town near Vicenza, is well represented by the mystery of its narrow streets and the harmonious style of historic buildings. Suspended between reality and illusion, the city takes the traveler on a journey through time and great literature, thanks to the places that inspired the legend of the tragic love between Romeo and Juliet. Walking through the streets of Montecchio Maggiore, whose name refers to one of the two Shakespearean families, allows you to relive the Renaissance atmospheres that belong to the tragedy. The two manors that dominate the city, the Bellaguardia Castle and the Villa Castle, are known precisely as Romeo and Juliet Castles. But the city preserves an artistic and architectural heritage that can offer many other possibilities to its guests. Among the numerous monuments and places to visit there are Villa Cordellina Lombardi, that houses some paintings by Giambattista Tiepolo, and Villa Lorenzoni, that houses the seat of the Giuseppe Zannato Civic Museum.

Religiuous places in Vicenza

A visit to the sanctuary of Monte Berico, one of the most important Marian places of worship in Vicenza and Veneto, is essential for those who wish to follow an itinerary on the steps of faith. You can also visit the splendid churches of Vicenza and Verona, such as the church of Santa Corona or the cathedral of Santa Maria Annunciata, in Vicenza, or the imposing basilica of San Zeno in Verona.

The places of Palladio

Vicenza and its surroundings are also the places that have seen the expression of the skill and architectural genius of Andrea Palladio. The Palladian basilica, the Olympic theater, the Villa della Rotonda (Villa Almerico Capra) are just some of the buildings that can be visited to admire the clean and linear style of one of the most important artists of the Italian Renaissance.
