What to expect

Padua is absolutely one of the most charming and picturesque cities in Veneto, full of history, culture and traditions. Let yourselves be fascinated by world-class monuments and buildings. Walk in the footsteps of famous historical personalities such as Giotto, Galileo Galilei, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Francesco Petrarca, Mary Shelly, William Shakespeare and many others.

Your tour at the discovery of one of the most enchanting cities in Veneto starts at 8.42 from the railway station of Venice Santa Lucia. Here you will take a speed train that will bring you to Padua in only 25 minutes. Thanks to an expert guide you will discover the treasures of the Paduan historic center, starting from Cafè Pedrocchi, a world-famous 18th-century literary cafè, passing by Palazzo del Bo, the historic headquarter of the University of Padua, founded in 1222.

Your tour goes on through the lively squares of the city, Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza della Frutta, separated by the elegant and majestic Palazzo della Ragione, former headquarter of the city court that houses the magnificent cycle of astrological-themed frescoes. Further, ahead you will find the exquisite Piazza dei Signori and the Torre dell'Orologio with the astrological clock.

A stop by Piazza Duomo is unmissable, with the Romanesque-styled cathedral and the baptistery. You will walk through the narrow streets of the Jewish ghetto, with its picturesque glimpses. Finally, you will reach Prato della Valle, which is one of the largest and most suggestive squares in Europe. Last but not least, you will stop by the Basilica del Santo, the symbol of the city, which houses the remains of Saint Anthony, patron of Padua.

Your visit to the city of Padua ends at 18.51 at the railway station where you will be supposed to catch the speed train back to Venice.
