The Giardini dell'Arena is a lovely and well-manicured park located in the center of Padua, next to the Capella degli Scrovegni, the major artistic and cultural attraction in town. Walking paths, flowers, trees, bushes, artistically placed and pruned, provide for a lovely walk or a...More

The gardens deserve a visit because of this amphitheater and the nearby Cappella degli Scrovegni dont' expect something comparable to the impressive Verona amphitheater or the Rome coliseum

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
