Vicenza March 2011

loved this veronese piece of a painting

it's all about Palladio in Vicenza

12th century house - Casa Pigafetta. he was an explorer who traveled with magellan!

scene in center of town

Palladium building

and more Palladio

every now and then Venetian architecture pops up

took train from Venice (about an hour, if you take fast train).  the 3 star Palladio theatre was closed for the day, due to repairing of the fire alarm system rrrrrghhh. this did not make us happy, but there are some nice museums there including one which had an unbelievable collection of Russian icons. They were beautifully displayed in a baroque building. Quite impressive.
