Located in the province of Vicenza, Marostica (Maròstega in Veneto dialect) is famous all over the world for the human chess game it carries out every other year, with personages living in the city public square. The heart of the Marostica is enclosed by its Medieval wall, with both an Upper and Lower castle, and the living chess game square being right at the centre of the town. And the Scaligeri nobles from Verona were the key protagonists of Marostica’s important and still visible past. In addition to its very charming and very lively Medieval atmosphere, Marostica is also famous for the different varieties of cherries which are produced in the area. Local cherries bear the PGI (protected geographical indication) mark and have long been celebrated in local markets, festivals and, of course, culinary tradition.

Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

Marostica has a direct bus connection with Vicenza railway station. Alternatively, a direct bus connection exists with Bassano railway station too. From Bassano:

  • Venice is 1h20min ride away
  • Padua is 1h ride away

More info is available on Trenitalia's website ([1]).

By plane[edit]

Two international airports are conveniently located nearby:

  • Venezia Marco Polo (VCE) ([2]), 85km, lot of destinations throughout Europe - by train: bus to Venice station, then train to Vicenza or Bassano, then bus
  • Treviso (TSF) ([3]), 52km, low-cost airport with Ryanair and other carriers - by train: bus to Treviso station, then train to Vicenza, then bus

By car[edit]

Marostica is just 30km north-east of Vicenza, which can easily be reached through the A4 Milano-Venezia highway (Vicenza Est and Vicenza Ovest exits).

By bus[edit]

FTV ([4]) directly connects Marostica to Bassano (15min) and Vicenza (45min).

Get around[edit]

On foot[edit]

Discovering the town on foot is very easy. The historic centre is not very big, so you can easily go around in the narrow streets. And you can also walk all around its Medieval walls from the Lower up to the Upper Castle, but this is a bit more demanding…
