Covid-19 update: make sure to reserve your ticket(s) on-line. We visited on October 20 without reservation and were lucky to have only a 45 minute wait before entering. Also, the check-in procedure is arduously slow, also due to the staff who work at a very slow pace. The frescos are certainly worth a visit. The museum is of medium quality with at present many rooms roped off due to covid-19 restrictions.

I studied this in Art History, but nothing prepares you for the assault on your senses of the real thing. Overwhelming...in a good way. The Chapel has been renovated again recently, adding a 1-storey glass extension. This box helps to break the flow of visitors, and to equalise temperature and humidity. All to preserve the integrity of the paintings. I implore you to see and to marvel at this world treasure! There are lots of rules and regulations now, so make sure you take a gander at the official website and book your tickets well in advance. They were sold out when we visited.

The Cappela della Scrovegni contains paintings by Giotto. These are the first painting depicting people in a natural way. This is the birth of the renaissance era and perhaps deserves a visit more than the sixtine chapel. You have to reserve in advance so remember to do so. It would be a shame to miss it

The Chapel is a masterpiece from Giotto who was an extraordinary artist of the 14th century. You wait in an anteroom with an interesting introductory film. Must book - tickets are extremely limited and it’s best to book well in advance. After the visit because of COVID-19 we were shepherded round the rest of the Eremitani Museum, which was a little frustrating as you couldn’t go where you wanted. But our art-student guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Should be on the list of everyone who likes art.

Probably a great place to admire in case you have a possibility to book a ticket. The website didn’t work, we got there on Friday morning just te hear it was fully booked till Sunday. Which is very strange considering the fact there were barely tourists in the city. I can understand it’s probably busy especially in the new reality world but it’s first time I see the place booked forward for 2,5 days. If you’re only for one day in Padua you don’t have any chance.
