Schio is an ancient little town with medieval churches and elegant shops. The green woods on the mountains, which ring it like an amphitheatre, give way higher up to the bare and craggy rocks of the Pre-Alps. On a clear windy day you can see Venice.

The township grew up around two hills - Castle Hill and the Gorzone - the first of which is still crowned by a tower while the other carries the imposing neoclassical Duomo (cathedral). Both these buildings can be seen from a long way off and are the architectural symbols of Schio.

Schio can easily be reached by car or bus from Vicenza in a half hour, and is just 10 minutes from Thiene.  Some other historic monuments include the cathedral of San Pietro (partly 16th century) and the church of San Francesco (1442).
