Giotto's incredible frescoes adorn virtually ever inch of this chapel. Be sure to get your tickets in advance so you don't miss out on a timeslot that fits your itinerary. Evening double slots are available, and recommended.

I had no idea what we were going to see, but was well advised! This was a real treat to see the frescoes of the Chapel. Your visit is timed, so you are focused to try to take it all in given your allotted time....More

The fresco's in this Chapel, made by the great Giotto, make together one of the most fascinating pièces of Art in the whole world. Visiting Italy, you must certainly try to go and see this. Splendid!

As others have said, make reservations on line in advance. You only get 15 or so minutes. You have to sit outside in a special temperature controlled room before entering. All worth doing.

Interesting chapel to visit, Not my favorite type of art but interesting what lengths they are going to to preserve it. Must see.

Absolutely stunning. Giotto was the foremost painter of the Proto-Renaissance, reintroducing perspective and realism to European art. You can see some of his murals in other places, but nothing compares to this stunning collection, done at the height of his powers. The museum is worth...More

This is a lovely chapel. It's an experience similar to visiting Sistine Chapel -- controlled and brief access. The lighting is good, and it's alot to take in, in 15 minutes. Highly recommend pre-ticketing with the Padua Card, or separately.

This chapel strictly limits the number of visitors. We arrived with no reservations and were lucky to get in. There is a combination ticket that allows museum access. If it is important for you to see the chapel I would recommend advance reservations.

Make sure you book in advance and I would suggest getting the Padua Card to save money. You don't get very long in the chapel but there is an introductory video and the numbers allowed in are limited so you don't spend all your time...More
