Vicenza is a city in northeastern Italy in the province of Veneto. It is situated between Verona and Padova, and Venice is about 45 miles to the east. It is a city of more than 100,000 people with a beautiful, historic downtown area and a modern, metropolitan area with many smaller towns closely surrounding it. Called the “City of Palladio” after the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio who designed many of its buildings, Vicenza is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Caserma Ederle lies to the east of Vicenza and Caserma Del Din to the north of the historic downtown which can be reached by walking, biking, or a short drive. The old city center is a ZTL and off-limits to motor vehicles, except for residents and designated vehicles. Nestled between walls dating from the Middle Ages, the old city hosts many shops, restaurants and cultural attractions, such as the oldest enclosed theater in the world called the Teatro Olimpico.
Other famous cities, such as Milan, Bologna, Florence, Parma, Genoa, Verona, Venice and others are within a few hours’ drive, as are the Alps, the Adriatic Sea, and the borders of Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia and France. The city offers train and bus connections to other locations throughout Italy and abroad.
