This massive old building has been built,with one large roof over the building,which is the biggest roof in Europe, that is not supported by columns. It is an Architectural wonder. It also has lovely frescoes on the walls. Well worth visiting if you have the time.

Very exciting market if you are into food and gastronomy. We walked through this market two mornings in a row. Look out for cafes which sell 'Taramizini' , a local panini sandwich. Extremely tasty snack. Served happily with a glass of Prosecco. What a treat. Also has rows of delis and artisianal food shops. Very quaint and charming. Just like... More

Beautiful to view from the outside. The inside visit costs 6 euro. It is quite a lively place on market days. One of a chain of piazze you will pass thru as you walk the historic city center.

the large wooden horse inside the large room is a big surprise. all the frescos are great, and some were done by Giotto (I think). they are beautiful as is the portico with its pillars and painting ceiling. It is very old and still very worth seeing.

The Palace is without doubt a great place tonvisit, with frescoes and it seems to go back to the past. The atmosphere is fantastisc But the disappoint is that disable on wheel chair cannot go up to the entrance that is located on the top of lots of stairs. So maybe art is not for everybody....

Due to he building being partially closed the entry was reduced o 2 euro, which allowed access to the main hall and upper walkway. Stunning architecture with painted walls. Great value.

Cultural and architectural landmark, the Palazzo della Ragione was built back in 1218, being the first main building of the medieval ages that showed the town's supremacy and economical wealth. The market became the first step into evolution, as later came in 1222 the foundation of the University of Padua (second oldest in the world) and in 1235 the construction... More

I visited on a day when preparations were under way for an event and, because of this, entry was free. The large balcony, with frescoes covering the ceiling, looks out over Piazza Delle Erbe. The enormous hall inside the Palazzo has frescoes all around the walls but not on the ceiling. Because of the event, it was only possible for... More
