I will always remember Vicenza as one of the most elegant cities that I have visited, and I mean 'elegant' in the most classic way possible.  Vicenza is one of Italy's most affluent cities as well as one of its most culturally important. Known as the 'City of Palladio', it is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

It was a gorgeous place to enjoy a coffee and a walk around to marvel at the grandeur of the splendid classical architecture. Vicenza is spotlessly clean and everything feels rather glamorous. Quite a departure from the places we usually find ourselves in!


























































We visited Vicenza during August when the summer sunlight and inky shadows were jostling against each other in game of chase across the city. The contrast was quite stunning!

Who is Palladio?

  1. Oh, how I love Italy. Almost as much as France, even. There is something so charming and inviting about the way the sun hits the cobblestones and oh, those yellow buildings! You've given me a craving for another trip :)

  3. Why is it that every time I see pictures of Italy, I get the feeling that dolce far niente is really a life motto for Italians :)
    Everything and everyone seems so relaxed. I must really go there one day.

  5. Pigeons are always the same though! I like them. I've never been to these parts, clearly missing out. Our road trip should take a detour to Italy.

  7. Your lens have captured the essence of the city. I love how you managed to catch the Nonno (granpa in Italian) peacefully enjoying his espresso. Just beautiful! I have to visit Vicenza one day.. they have some nice wine around that region. By the way I have moved to wordpress very recently. Address : mjoat.com
