This is a must-visit for me if you are coming to Padua. I will even recommend this church over the Basilica of St. Anthony of Padua. You will be able to see many beautiful side chapels (too many to be named here), artwork and relics of Saints, most notably St. Luke (left side) and St. Matthias (right side). Under the High Altar is also the body of St. Justina of Padua, one of the patrons of the city.

Behind the Chapel of St. Matthias lies the Corridor of Martyrs, where you will find the Well of Martyrs and an old cage, which is believed to have transported the relics of St. Luke here.

One hour will be a reasonable time to spend here. I will also highly recommend attending the Conventual Mass if you have time. The chanting and singing by the monks are simply beautiful and touching. When I was there, they were chanting Vespers in the chapel, and I thought it was music being played on an audio recorder.

We visited here on a day trip to Padua while staying in Venice for a week. While Padua itself was a little disappointing, this was a lovely place to visit.

We were lucky as we managed to go in just before they closed for mid-afternoon, but still managed to spend about half an hour inside, although could have spent longer.

Even though I am not religious, I have always appreciated religious architecture. They are some of the most stunningly beautiful buildngs. This basilica is definitely worth a visit, check times before arriving to ensure you have the time needed to really take everything in.

The church of Santa Giustina is pretty simple and spacious. It is not very rich inside because of the history of the Santa who was a symbol of the poor people.

Very similar in the architectural structure of the nearby San Francesco church, Santa Giustina isn't nearly as ornate or as stunningly beautiful inside, but is well worth seeing. The artwork and side chapels here are all very impressive and in many ways, the bareness of the church highlights it's vast size. Free to visit and photography is freely allowed, but it's closed between noon and 15:30 except Sundays.

Visited this church whilst visiting the Prato della Valle Square and it is a very beautiful building with dome shaped roofs etc. There are beautiful frescos on the ceiling inside and amazing stained glass with pictures depicting the life of Jesus and Mary. At one side of the church inside, on the wall are two angels carrying the bible and various statutes in nooks and corners of the church. The main door has some sculptures as well. Not to be missed.

This beautiful basilica is smaller than that of At Anthony but just beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous side chapels and frescos. Don't miss it. When we were there, a wedding was being held. The organ was playing gorgeous romantic songs and the bride looked beatiful. It was a memorable occassion.

This is a lovely Basilica and definitely worth a visit. It is a short 5-10 min walk, depending on how slow you want to go, from the basilica di Sant'Antonio and a beautiful one at that. Inside you will find the tomb of St. Luke. It is a real treasure. In addition, it faces one "corner" of the Prato della Valle so you can take a pleasant stroll before or after.

This beautiful church is just a few walking blocks from St. Anthony's Cathedral. It is open 24 hours and is opposite a beautiful public park. It has many side chapels. There are many restaurants and coffee shoppes nearby.

We hadn’t heard of this church but were really glad we saw it. It’s HUGE and quite beautiful inside. It’s very close to Saint Anthony”s and at first we thought that’s what it was. It’s well worth a visit.

This is quite a large complex but I liked the little chapels best. My favourite was the beautiful and peaceful Opilione chapel, or Sanctuary of Prosdocimus (on the right, towards the back). You're not allowed to enter the chapel itself, but even so you can still feel the special atmosphere. Sounds corny, but it's true!
