“Another must-see in Padua”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The main cathedral of Padua is a must-see for pilgrims and art lovers alike. Don't miss early Renaissance frescoes in some chapels and the central sculptural altar by Donatello.

“This is a gem”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I had never heard of the place before but our hotel was right there. We visited and certainly more sculpture and history than you could imagine. We rated this a better visit than St Mark's, the day before.

“Don't Miss It”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

This Basillica is unique inside and out. The tomb of St. Anthony of Padua is a miraculous work of art and not to be missed. You can get there but the hop-on/hop-off bus tour or walk to it from the center of town.

“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

In a country with a lot of beautiful churches this was one of the prettiest I have ever seen. You are not allowed to take pictures which in a way is nice since you can really concentrate on looking at the church itself.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

It is one of the most beautiful monuments I have seen so far in Italy! Even more beautiful that some other basilica you can find in bigger cities!

Must be seen!
