The chapel presents a fundamental moment in the evolution of western painting, the total transition from rigidity in form to a naturalist view full of human expression.

Unlike the Sistine Chapel, I had heard very little of the Scrovegni Chapel until planning a day's activities for Padua. With beautiful frescoes by Giotto throughout dating from 1303-1305, it is a must if in this part of Italy. Clearly this is thought of as highly as the Sistine; it has temperature/humidity controlled environment with timed entries strictly enforced. However... More

Made reservations online in advance for evening visit, allowing additional 5 minutes to view the frescos. Entrance well organized with video w English subtitled. Did 700pm spot and finished the evening with dinner in the area. Easy stop off tram. Pick up tickets at next door Eremitani Museum 30 minutes before to store belongings and for comfort stop.

Giotto is one of the true renovators in the transition from medieval to renaissance painting. You must see this chapel to appreciate how he added mass, weight, and perspective to shape the trajectory of art. Advance reservations are required, and you only have about 10-15 minutes to view the chapel, but it is a stunner. Well organized, with an orientation... More

Even if you don't fancy yourself an art lover, this is quite amazing. If you do only one thing in Padova, this should be it, but make sure to reserve in advance, which is easily done online.

Well, you wanna see Giotto, buy your tickets in advance, then waits for your line and then after 30 or 90 minutes youre in the Chapel. Tour starts with a video guide and then you have access to the Chapel. It has a magnificent energy among the blue walls, its like an other dimension. Paintings are awesome, you are not... More

You need to reserve tickets in advance to see this chapel, but seeing it is very worthwhile. You will have to spend 15 minutes in a room before the visit, seeing a film about the chapel, and then only have 15 minutes to see it. However, it is worth it! Entry to the chapel also gives you entry to Padova's... More

We went to Scrovegnni Chapel having seen the great reviews. We were expecting a real treat given the outstanding comments but were left bewildered when leaving. After having to check a small handbag into a cloakroom as it was prohibited we then waited patiently to be allowed in. They hoarded us in like sheep and sat down as they put... More

Impressive frescos, best quality of visit, especially if you visit the Civic museum with one ticket for both attractions.

Even if you are not a fan of art a visit to this chapel is a must. The chapel houses the famous Giotto frescoes depicting various episodes from the new testament. Main frescoe however represents the last judgement as imagined by Giotto. The chapel has an adjoining multimedia exhibition which I highly recommend to visit before the actual visit to... More
