Vicenza Basilica Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
The main elevation makes this basilica, built from 1549 to 1617, a masterpiece by Palladio, with galleries superimposing Doric and Ionic orders of great strength, proportions and purity. The huge upturned keel roof is more recent (the original was destroyed by bombing). Like its Roman ancestors, this basilica had nothing to do with religion: it was a meeting place for town's prominent figures. Today it is the venue of prestigious art exhibitions.
