"Contra Porti" Vicenza Things to Do Tip by Sjalen

Vicenza Things to Do: 140 reviews and 345 photos


This street has the Palladian exhibitions mentioned earlier, but also some other nice palaces. I found that one house was the place where Luigi da Porto who wrote Romeo and Juliet died. This had a balcony next to it and I couldn't stop wondering whether this was the original Juliet's house instead of the one in Verona :)

Address: Contra Porti

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
