The Veneto villas par excellence are found in Vicenza
. Here, we find the greatest concentration of the unmistakeable architectural designs of Andrea Palladio.
His villas were both stately homes and farms, surrounded by farmland, vineyards, stables and sheds. The Palladian icon is Villa Almerico Capra, known as "La Rotonda”
, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. Built on a gentle hill, the residence continues to amaze visitors with its perfect harmony of graceful square and circular forms.
