Vicenza and the surrounding area
The province of Vicenza: from Palladio to nature.
Between the plains and mountains, the province of Vicenza is famous for its craftsmanship. The area around Vicenza is rich in monuments, palaces, churches and villas that are a testament to the different historical eras of the province.
Vicenza, the city of Gold
Vicenza is also known as the city of gold, both for its wealth of monuments and because over the years it has become home to the most important European goldsmithing events.
The city grew close to three rivers - Bacchiglione, Retrone and Astichello - on a hilly area dominated by the famous Berici Hills.
Its original name is thought to have been Berga, which is also the name of the small Roman theatre in Vicenza. The city was given its current name in Roman times: Vicentia, a fusion of the word "vincens" (winning) and the Greek name "Onitekia" (land of the Venetians).
The city's most unmissable events include:
Sagra di Sant’Eurosia
Sagra delle Castagne (Chestnut Festival)
International Gold and Jewellery Show.
