Vicenza Travel guide
Vicenza : Michelin's recommendations
A thriving industrial and commercial centre, Vicenza is a hub for traditional textile production and the gold and jewellery, mechanical engineering and chemical industries. It is also a major crossroads linking the Veneto and Trentino regions. But for art lovers, Vicenza is above all the city of Palladio, the architect of palaces, villas and the Teatro Olimpico. The local gastronomic speciality is the salt cod dish baccalà alla Vicentina, which is eaten with wine from the Berici mountains.
