Where we are


The town of Padua and its county form one of the most lively and dynamic cultural-economic centres in the north of Italy.


A town with a great artistic and cultural tradition, Padua boasts outstanding monuments as its University, one of the oldest in Europe, the Scrovegni Chapel that preserves a cycle of frescoes by Giotto, and the Basilica of Saint Anthony that welcomes thousands of pilgrims from the world over every year.


Also the county of Padua holds an enormous artistic, natural, and cultural heritage that is little known to tourists. Just think of the countless villas and castles scattered over the territory, of the old churches, the walled cities built in the Middle Ages, or its navigable waterways.

Please accept our invitation to discover Padua and its surroundings.
