Just some typical old walls that still stand in the centre of Padova...the place & gardens are used for events like music sessions, plays & outside cinemas.

We saw this arena when walking into town from the railway station. It is also on the toe property as the Scrovegni Chapel - all of this land was originally purchased by Scrovegni, including the Anfiteatro, on which he planned to build a grand residence...More
