The chapel visit is very regulated and for good reason. You will be on time or you will not be granted entry. There is a marvelous book and gift shop, and a pictorial history of the players who made this chapel come into being. Trust me you do not want to have been a Usurer -- this is every bit... More

don't believe the website that says you need two days notice. Just go and ask if they have space for the day. If you CAN book in advance then you are guaranteed, but if you just show up you still have a chance. it is well worth a visit. Giotto's frescos are amazing.

This magnificent fresco artwork was completed in 1305 by Giotto, a famous Florentine painter, who was supposedly aided by a team of 40 collaborators who had calculated approximately 625 work days to complete the paintings. A work day consisted of the portion of each fresco that could be painted before the plaster dried. Hence the term "fresco." Giotto worked on... More

The artwork in this spectacular space is breathtaking. The introductory video everyone has to watch is extremely helpful. Go for one of the earliest time slots if you can...we went at 9:00 and because nobody showed up for the 9:30 slot, we were allowed to stay in the chapel for an extra fifteen minutes.

There are many reviews, and it is a must to see Giotto's art and genius in the Scrovegni chapel from the XIIIth century. The staff is not really friendly, but they are precise, serious, not personal. Of course the permanent shifts of people (every 15 minutes) let guardians no room for kind treatments. Great to see. But strange that Giotto... More

This quaint little chapel was well worth the visit. The introductory film was interesting and very helpful to give an understanding of the origins of the place. The paintings were fascinating as were the stories that the two local volunteers were able to give as we enjoyed the place.

Fantastic to see the frescoes. The museum had many items to see. Groups of 25 go in at a time to the chapel.

If you are in Venice or the Veneto area I strongly urge you to get to Padova and visit this small but powerful little chapel. Completed around 1305 and almost ruined at various points in history, it is really amazing this is still around to enjoy. It is a very intimate visit as your group will be very small and... More

Fantastic chapel all entirely painted by Giotto. The visit is quite short but enough to admire the fantastic work Giotto was able to realise. Near the Chapel there is a great Pinacoteca, a huge picture gallery with an enormous amount of famous paintings on the second floor of the museum. The wood cross Giotto did and painted is in this...
