We just returned from a 7 day stay in Lorella's apartment in Padua and had a great time! The apartment is located in a quiet residential neighborhood about 15 minutes by bus from the train, bus and tram stations. The apartment consists of two nice sized bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large living/dining room, a well equipped and roomy kitchen with all the modern conveniences and a screened in porch. Everything is very clean and it provided us all we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The neighborhood is home to Mazzari, one of the finest party shops in Padua. There are also several local restaurants, bars and a really nice family owned grocery store, all priced very reasonably. The bus stop is right in front of the building, and you can buy tickets for the bus in the neighborhood tobacco shop only steps from the bus stop. Padua is the perfect location to base yourself in order to explore the sights and attractions of the Veneto region of Northern Italy, and Lorella's apartment is the perfect place to stay. By train it's only 20 minutes to Venice, 30 minutes to Vicenza, 1 hour to Verona and Lake Garda and 1 hour by bus to the beautiful beaches at Sotomarina/Chioggia. I highly recommend staying at Lorella's beautiful apartment in Padua while visiting Veneto.
