The location: Padua, a must-see Italian city

Padua is a beautiful medieval city located less than one hour from Venice.
The city is picturesque, with its dense network of arcaded streets opening into large squares and its many bridges crossing the various branches of the Bacchiglione river, which once surrounded the ancient walls like a moat.

Padua is a city of art to be discovered, it appears twice in the UNESCO World Heritage List: for its Botanical Garden, the most ancient of the world, and for its 14th-century Frescoes, situated in different buildings of the city centre. The best example of these frescoes is the Scrovegni Chapel painted by Giotto at the beginning of 1300.
