Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is another must if you visit Padova. The tomb of St Anthony and the chapel of relics are stunning. The sculpture by Donatello at the high altar are wnderful

“Very interesting”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We were fortunate to visit at a time w fewer people and so the wait time to view the relics was not long.
The art is wonderful w the frescoes, tomb, sculptures.
Could not list anything that we disliked, even sitting outside of the basilica and taking in the atmosphere was an interesting part of the visit

“Magnificient inside”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Impressive huge building outside (though not extraordinarily huge in Italian standards), higly decorated inside. I happened to be there during a mass, which provided a cozy atmosphere. Nice to stroll around for half hour or so.

“Pilgrimage site”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

This must get very crowded in the summer but in winter was perfect, it is possible to visit even during a service as the sides are open to the public.

“sanctum place”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Basilica is marvelous by itself. But even if you are not christian believer you will feel special peace and spirituality when you touch saint Anthony tomb.
