Start your tour at Piazza Matteotti in the middle of Vicenza. Listen as your guide explains the life of Andrea di Petro della Gondola, aka Palladio, who was famous for his architectural prowess during the High Renaissance. While much is known about the architect and his work, little is known about his final days, and the circumstances of his death are unknown.

Hear the legends and myths that shroud Palladio’s death in suspicion, and work your way around town. As you collect clues, you’ll pass some of the city’s must-see sights. Look out for the Church of Santa Corona and stroll through Piazza dei Signori to see Basilica Palladiana. Corso Palladiana, Piazza Castello and the Church of San Lorenzo are other highlights along the route. 

The tour includes a drink and some local specialties to enjoy as you puzzle over the mystery of Palladio’s death. You’ll finish back at the start point.
