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.
