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!
