What an amazing spot. The restoration has been meticulously done. Timed, controlled entrance by ticket only (book online to make sure you get in) ensures that this Chapel, considered one of the greatest art treasures in the Western world is around for many generations to come.

The Scrovegni Chapel tells the story of Christ in a series of wall paintings. It's interesting and beautiful, but feels more like a museum than a church.

I have always enjoyed 19th century art and could never see why other people lionised "old masters " - loads of dark varnish obscuring not much subject matter. Giotto's frescoes, preceded by a short film while our bodies were cooled down, thus preventing our sweaty exhalations chemically damaging the centuries old images, are an absolute knockout. He shows real people... More

This is my second visit to the chapel and I only wish I could return to Padua to see it again. There is so much to see. Giotto was a true story telling master and the frescos are a joy to behold.

Despite some of the inconveniences -- Byzantine ticket procedures and sometimes long wait times, this is a must-see, even if you are not an art lover or historian. I only wish we had had more time and I was kicking myself that I did not purchase two tickets. While the entrance cost may seem high, it is well worth it... More

As an Interior Designer who studied Art History as part of my Interior Design Certification - this was an amazing site to see in person. Giotto was so far ahead of his time with the techniques of shadowing and facial features and showing emotion in his paintings. His work was accomplished at the end of the Middle Ages and before...

If you love Italian art, this is a must see. Requires advance booking. I'd advise printing out a guide to the frescoes before you go so you know what you are seeing. Pictures are permitted and it is an exceptional experience.

One of the most spectacular sites to visit in Padua is the Scrovegni Chapel. Built in the early thirteen hundreds, the chapel holds within the life work paintings of famous Italian painter Giotto. To see the chapel, you can buy the tickets at the Tourist Information Center located at the Galleria Pedrocchi. The tickets must be purchased at least four... More

It is a must see for everyone who comes here. The quality of the fresci, the manner they have been maintained and the themes make a visit imperative. The museum and Giotto's work is good - not overwhelming. Register online to make it easier.
