Vicenza in Gold

There is something about Vicenza that makes one want to keep it a secret and preserve it from hoards of tourists that can be seen in large numbers in other cities in the area such as famous Verona. I have long wanted to go there, and it is odd that my trip had waited so long considering that it is only about 4 and a half hours drive from my home.
Bathed in gold, on a warm summer’s night Vicenza was a welcoming, inspiring and enchanting place to discover.

  1. Paula — Wonderful, short post on my adopted hometown. Great pics of the iconic Basilica Palladiana and Piazza dei Signore. Too bad you didn’t tell me ahead of time that you were coming; I could’ve given you my “one euro” tour of the centro storico and a Spritz Veneziano aperitivo “on the house.” Next time, okay?

    • My dear Dina, I know you are an honest person and I really like you, but you have made wrong judgement here … your photos are better than mine, and I mean it. I can’t be a role model – at least not to you :D. Thank you, you have made me laugh (you have no idea how much I needed a laugh today :D)

  5. These are gorgeous Paula! It’s like I’m on my own personal treasure hunt. Every time I think I’ve read all the notification emails hiding in my inbox, another one pops up. It’s actually kind of exciting seeing what I’ve missed ๐Ÿ˜€
