Vicenzatour2023 starts again from May to December
From May to December, a new program of 13 guided tours will enrich the cultural city offer.
From May to December VicenzaTour starts again with 11 newly conceived itineraries and two consolidated ones that are always in great demand, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.
The particularly articulated calendar, as usual, aims to enhance the historical, cultural, and museum heritage by involving museums and monuments through original and stimulating itineraries led by licensed tourist guides of Vicenza who also collaborated in the conception.
The fourth edition is organized by the municipal administration with the collaboration of the Superintendency of Archeology, fine arts and landscape for the provinces of Verona, Rovigo and Vicenza, the Gallerie d'Italia - Vicenza, the Palladio Museum, the Diocesan Museum, the Jewellery Museum, of the Coppola Foundation, the Vicenzaè Consortium and the IAT Office for the development.
Scheduled for December, the "Christmas" itineraries will be re-proposed in the museums that preserve works of art that tell the story of the birth of Jesus and other sacred representations.
An absolute novelty, on the other hand, is a visit to a privately owned residence, Villa Ghislanzoni Curti in Bertesina, a few minutes by bicycle from the historic center, from which you can see the interiors, the Italian garden, and the historic park and learn about the history of the village in which it stands. It will be the first "green" appointment of the busy calendar which will be held on Saturday, May 13th, and repeated on Saturday, May 27th, starting at 10 am from via San Cristoforo 37.
It will then continue in June with "Vicenza from above" to visit the towers of Porta Castello, the Diocesan Museum, and the terrace of the Palladian Basilica. Still, in June, the works of art from the Sanctuary of Monte Berico can also be seen in the Museum of Sacred Art and the Sala del Quadro. Another tour will lead to the discovery of Antonio Fogazzaro's Vicenza.
In September, Vicenza Romana will be discovered along the ancient Via Postumia and in October there will be three appointments dedicated to the Renaissance: the first will lead to Palazzo Chiericati and the Teatro Olimpico, the second to the Jewellery Museum and the Galleries of Palazzo Thiene, the third at the Teatro Olimpico and the Palladio Museum.
In November it will be the turn of 17th-century Vicenza with a tour of Palazzo Leoni Montanari and, for the first time, of the Oratorio del Gonfalone and San Nicola, while the other itinerary of the month will lead to Palazzo Trissino and the Loggia del Capitaniato in the heart of the city government.
The last appointment at The Jewellery Museum is scheduled for Sunday, December 3rd, 2023 with "Two steps in Christmas... The Jewellery Museum and Palazzo Leoni Montanari" starting at 1 am. The tour will focus on the discovery of the precious collection of Italian Jewels at The Jewellery Museum and the famous collection of ancient icons at Palazzo Leoni Montanari.
The tours last approximately two hours and are free up to 12 years old.
