Visit Vicenza - Best of Vicenza

Located in the Veneto region in the Northeast if Italy, Vicenza is a city known for its rich history and architecture. This metropolitan city has more than 115,927 inhabitants.

The history of this ancient city dates back to the 157 BCE when it was a part of Roman Empire as Vicetia/ Vincentia. A century after Hungarians destroyed it in 899, it served as a seat of Bishop in 1001. Later in 1404, it became a part of the republic of Venice. In 19th century, the city was taken over by the Austrians, after the fall of Napoleon. But it finally became free and a part of Italy in 1866.
