For those who know Padua, is this a "reasonable" idea?
We will be picking up a rental car in Venice around 11 a.m. and driving to Padua. Assuming that we are actually in the car by 11:30 it seems we could be in Padua by 12:30.
I'm trying to decide if an afternoon is going to be enough, and that by the end of the day we could be on our way to go spend the night in Ferrara ... or if we should find a place to spend the night in Padua?
Obvsiously we want to see the Scrovegni Chapel -- and I'm thinking the Padua Card makes sense -- it's only 3 Euro more than entrance to the Chapel alone!
But if we also want to a few other places - the Basilica of St. Anthony, the Bapistry, Prato del Valle, Orto botanico di Padova, etc.
Is trying to do that between noon and 5 p.m. a good afternoon or idiotic?
