The Palladio and Bassano del Grappa Private Tour

You will be picked up at 8:00 AM from your hotel or other location in central Verona. The first stop is in Vicenza. Begin at Villa Valmarana ai Nani called the 'Rotonda.' It gets the name from the statues of the 17 dwarves on the walls surrounding the house. The legend tells of a dwarf princess who lived secluded in the villa surrounded by dwarfs. Upon seeing a beautiful prince in the garden, she realized her handicap and threw herself from the tower. The pain the dwarves felt for the princess transformed them into statues of stone. The Villa is also considered to be at the height of 18th century painting and one of the best examples of the Giambattista Tiepolo’s genius. Along the way, stop at Olympic Theater which is the absolute masterpiece of the one of the greatest Italian architects: Andrea Palladio. Palladio was openly inspired by the Roman theatres described by Vitruvius. The Olympic Theater is one of Vicenza’s artistic wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
