The architect Andrea Palladio (1508-80) spent most of his life in Vicenza where he developed his distinctive architectural style. Here are some of the sights of the city we enjoyed as we wandered its streets.
Grasses waving suggestively in the Brenta River
Arabesque windows – Palladio clearly did not design everything here
The courtyard of the Teatro Olimpico, Europes oldest surviving indoor theatre, built in 1579
One of the statues on the ballustrade of the Palazzo della Ragione in Piazza dei Signori
One of the "roadies" setting up a temporary stage in the main piazza for a concert
