Get on an electric bike and cycle around Vicenza to discover the houses of noble families that have become an architectural landmark in the Veneto region.
Electric Bike Tour of the Palladian Villas
At 9 am, we will meet up next to the Valmarana Braga Palace where we jump on our electric bikes and ride through the historical center of Vicenza until we reach the elegant Palladian villas.
These mansions have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. We will first visit the Villa Caldogno, designed by the Italian architect Andrea Palladio. These 16th-century country villas were built for the noble families of the time and soon became an architectural landmark even outside Italy.
After exploring the interior of this villa and discovering its beautiful frescoes, we will stop at a local restaurant to recharge our batteries with a succulent lunch. The menu will include a starter, a main course, a drink, and coffee.
After lunch, we will pedal along the banks of the Bacchiglione River and see the exteriors of the Valmarana Bressan villa, which has a somewhat more sober appearance than the previous mansion. We will continue cycling through the countryside of Vicenza until we make a final stop at Villa Ghilanzoni Curti.
The former residence of the Curti family is not the work of Palladio, but its aesthetics are clearly inspired by the villas of this architect. We will enter the interior of the building and we will be welcomed with a delicious glass of wine and some tasty appetizers.
Finally, we will return to the bikes and finish the tour, arriving back at the initial meeting point at 5:45 pm.
