In this episode we take a look at the benefits of traveling to Italy in the off season as I visit two of Andrea Palladio’s great masterpieces. Traveling around Vicenza in the Veneto, North Italy, by myself, armed with a consumer video camera I visited Teatro Olimpico and La Rontonda also known as Villa Capra.

To see some more professional shots of Teatro Olimpico, check out this video of the great Cecilia Bartoli performing there.
