City Sightseeing Padua 24 Hours

Enjoy the charming university city of Padua, the ancient “city of water,” on board our fun, red double decker bus. See the ancient city walls and bridges within which many a past battle has been fought! Discover the little city with a lot of culture, made famous by its university (founded in 1222!), which brought forth many noteworthy scholars - Galileo Galilei, for example. Our convenient hop-on hop-off formula enables you to leave any bus at any of the many stops and then simply get back onboard later to continue your tour.

One of the stops is the Prato Della Valle - reputed to be the largest square in Europe and certainly stunning with its many statues gracefully adorning it. All around the city the “portici” the continuous archways shield you from the summer heat and allow you to browse in peace in the delightful shops before stopping for an aperitif or mid morning coffee at the prestigious Caffè Pedrocchi, open since 1916!

Of course Padova is famous for its saint, Saint Antonio, known throughout the city simply as THE SAINT. His shrine attracts millions of visitors every year. The impressive Basilica complex also houses famous works of art including three frescos by Titian. Another cultural treasure is to be found at the Scrovegni Chapel with Giotto’s fresco cycle, depicting scenes from the life of the Virgin and the life of Christ. The fresco cycle has been majestically restored, a treasure on par with Leonardo’s Last Supper in Milan.
