Vicenza Walking Tour to Querini Park

Querini Park, one of the city’s main historic parks, was originally part of Villa Capra-Querini and has been owned by the City of Vicenza since 1969. The park features a majestic tree-lined avenue adorned with statues, vases, and obelisks depicting mythological and allegorical figures, including works by Orazio Marinali, Angelo de Putti, and Antonio Gai. The avenue leads to a privately-owned villa, connected to a pond surrounding a small island on which stands a circular temple designed by Antonio Piovene. The park is a delightful place to stroll through paths rich in vegetation.

Vicenza Walking Tour to Salvi Park

Another beautiful historic park is Giardino Salvi, located at the west end of Corso Palladio. The gardens were previously owned by the Valmarana family and became municipal property in 1907. The gardens feature two loggias, including the 16th-century Valmarana loggia overlooking a small waterway that once protected the city walls. The gardens are a popular meeting place for Vicenza residents and travelers alike!
