Must do for all art and Giotto lovers. Went to Padua especially for this chapel and it's incredibly easy to do from Venice. Quick train and a small walk from train station, boom why would you miss it if you're already in Italy. Obviously for travellers book tickets as early as possible as they only let you go in for...

This is not only a can't miss if you're in Padua, it's worth a special trip. If you're in Venice, Padua's a twenty-minute train ride away.

For art lovers, this is an interesting place to see. The frescoes are almost like a comic strip and certainly more alive than other medieval works. To get the best of it, come well prepared or with a guide book to understand the sequence. I bought the Padova Card on line and reserved my time slot for the Scrovegni Chapel... More

It pays to book in advance as there are limited places but you can walk up and take your chances. It was 15 euro for an adult and 8 for my elderly mother. You have 15 minutes of sitting in a waiting area to acclimatize to the chapel with about 15 minutes in the chapel. You can take photos but... More

Absolutely stunning. Book early and pickup your online tickets in advance if you didn't book locally. We went with the earliest timeslot which had about 12 people entering the chapel. An audioguide may be useful, but the introductory video gives you the most important information in Italian, English and German. Afterwards, the museum's accessible from the ticket office room are...

This was a beautiful experience. Giotto's frescoes are a marvel: detailed and inspiring. The renovation work has been handled well. Before you enter the chapel you are 'decontaminated' and watch a 20 minute video innItalian with English and German subtitles. You then have 20 minutes inside the chapel to marvel! Photos without flashes are allowed. What is best though is... More

Book in advance It is easier to get to Vatican! It is just really strict. But if you are into art , Giotto frescos are something to admire.

These are some of the most beautiful and fascinating frescoes we've encountered in Europe. Groups in limited numbers are allowed in every 20 minutes or so after seeing an introductory video in a waiting area. Make reservations, especially at peak times. We made ours at the TI office next to the train station. Interestingly, in contrast to the Baptistery at... More

This is a must. It is one of the marvels of the world. This is reflected by the fact that visitors are requested to sit outside first, then they are admitted in a special room to "decontaminate"? for about 20 minutes (to protect the frescoes), before being admitted in the chapel as the group before us leaves. I bought the... More

The chapel structure itself is nothing but a long, tall and plain rectangular box. However, Giotto's painted imagery transforms it into something that feels like an architectural wonder steeped in spiritual reverence. GETTING THERE: Padova is a regular train stop on a Milan-to-Venice route, and a very short train ride from Venice. Once in Padova, it is a short and... More
