Favorite thing: Basilica as defined by Palladio himself means a court as known in Roman times, and the influence his visits to Rome had on the young architect are obvious in the regular arches and spaces so reminiscent of the Colosseum. Each arch is supported by a massive square pillar flanked by two semi-columns and two further small columns. The two series of loggia go right round the dome and have narrow balconies.

Fondest memory: See the porticos of the Basilica Palladiana, take a break here during the hot summer days or warm evenings.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
