Padua was the capital of painting of the 1300’s when Giotto painted the Chapel of the Scrovegni. The nearly two hours of travel are justified by the magnificent beauty of the chapel of the Scrovegni, one of the most important works of Italian Art painting by Giotto. To visit, the chapel please book online.
The city is also the bishopric where St. Anthony died, from which arose the name "City of the Saint;” his remains are interred in the Basilica dedicated to him. At the beginning of the 1500s, a theatre space dedicated to the works of William Shakespeare.
