Vicenza’s history dates back to pre-Roman times, but it is the Renaissance figure, Andrea Palladio, with whom the city is most associated. One of the preeminent figures in Western architecture, Palladio built more than twenty buildings here, leading UNESCO to designate the city as a World Heritage Site.
