From the Middle Ages to the present day

Located in an ancient eighteen-century building, the palace was recently renovated in compliance with its original structure and the will to provide the best to its guests.

A look into the past

If we could turn back time, we would see that Vicenza – as we know it today – was structured differently in the past. The origins of Antica Pusterla take us back in time to the ancient Vicenza and its sixteenth-century representation, the so-called ‘Pianta Angelica’.


Looking closely at the northern part of the map, you will see a small entrance – commonly known as Pusterula – that once connected the town with Contrà Pusterla, hence the name of the district. From the seventeenth-century onwards this area is known as “Quartiere San Marco” and nowadays it is one of the most elegant and luxurious district of the city.


Here - along the ruins of the old Borgo Pusterla - lies Antica Pusterla.

Suspended between the past and the present

Coming from the crowded shopping streets of the city, Antica Pusterla welcomes you in a simple but sophisticated building with its neoclassical facade.


Walking through the distinctive portego you will reach the entrance: the venetian style flooring, the liberty stained glass, the ashlar and white stone basement are just some small hints of ancient times that you will see and learn about; the combination of high-tech domotic systems amidst a very refined and elegant context will ensure you a memorable and pleasant stay.


Enjoy some relaxing moments after a long work-day by spending some time in our quiet and classy patio.
