Vicenza is a city in northwestern Italy, between Verona and
Venice. The population is more than 100 thousand people.
Like almost all Italian cities, Vicenza, even before our era, was annexed to the Roman Empire, and, together with it, it experienced both its heyday and decline. Then, by virtue of its location, Vicenza was also under the control of Verona (of the Scaliger family, in the 13th-14th centuries) and under the authority of Venice (the 15th-18th centuries).
Vicenza does not have its own airport, coming to Verona or
Venice. However, the trip from any of them takes no more than an hour, so this
is the most convenient way to get to Vicenza. You can still fly to Milan, but
from there you will have to go more than two hours, considering that the Milan
airport is not in Milan :)
The railway Milan-Verona-Venice line passes through Vicenza. Trains run frequently. Therefore, the most convenient option to see Vicenza is to come for a day from Verona or Venice.
It’s not so convenient to go by train from the north or south - you have to do this with a transfer in Verona, respectively, it will not be so fast. The same can be said about traveling to Vicenza from neighboring countries - too long. For example, from the nearest Austrian city (Innsbruck) it will be about 4 hours.
Vicenza Railway Station is located on the southwestern outskirts of the Old Town. The nearest city gate walk about 5 minutes.
