Just breathtaking and enchanting. A masterpiece to see. Be aware you may need to book in advance or waiting for your turn. But believe me the visit is worth. No pictures allowed to be taken unfortunately but nice memory! Enjoy

I saw Giotto's frescos many years ago, before restauration. It is a different world now. A breathtaking experience (even for only 15') that will give you a unique understanding of Giotto's art. Reserve well in advance

Purchase your tickets ahead of time and receive a time frame in which to show up for security and temperature control of the building (only a certain amount of people are allowed at a time and can remain for only 15 minutes). Enjoy all the Biblical scenes, painted on the walls and ceilings in one of the oldest churches of... More

Marvelous frescoes by Giotto and one of the most interesting places to see in Padua. The visit takes around 30 minutes in total (with only 15 inside the actual chapel, due to humidity considerations. The first 15 minutes visitors are shown a movie about the chapel and other attractions in Padua, and then they are allowed to go inside. In... More

If you are in Padova, you can not miss this place! It seems like a little blue Sistina Chappel. The ticket includes the access for two other museums nearby.

We went to the chapel to get tickets and were told by the woman at the desk that no tickets were available for another three days.She was quite officious and very unfriendly. After conferring with fellow travelers, we decided to purchase tickets for the next available time. When we went back to this woman, she informed us that we had... More

This chapel by Giotto is well worth the visit: spectacular frescoes, not inferior to the Sistine Chapel. You should book admission online from the chapel's' website: if you visit during off-peak season (as I did in October), you can actually stop by the chapel to change your booked time if your plans change. You get an introductory film, and are... More

We started our tour of Italy in Padua at the Scrovegni Chapel, and it set the stage for the rest of our Renaissance journey. 200 years before Michelangelo, Giotto created this masterpiece. The details in the background are clever and imaginative making the overall image more realistic. The colors are fresh and bright. Buy your tickets in advance online. You... More

The Scrovegni Chapel was nothing short of marvelous. The frescoes of Giotto fill the walls, and only small groups are allowed in at a time to help preserve the art. While the allotted time is short, it is enough.

Far too expensive and you are allowed just 20 minutes to visit,which is not enough for such an important site
