Well one of the places. Giotto, the artist who really kicked off the renaissance, made this his masterpiece. Entrance is by timed limited numbers and though you only get 15 minutes, you can come back for more, which we did for a longer evening session....More

The tourist guides say it is like the Sixtine chapel only in Padova and it is correct, really beautiful place. Make a reservation online (only 20 people every half an hour are allowed inside).

We came on a Friday afternoon having booked our tickets online two days before. We brought our 2 month old in a carrier and he slept the whole time while we enjoyed the artwork. It truly is an amazing painting. It took about 40 min,...More

The murals are superb and their protection with airlocks and temperature control is well done. But they should allow visitors who want to just see the murals and not listen to the 20-minute propaganda video quicker access. The signage along the main street from the...More

This is a small chapel near Padova's train station. Very nice paintings on the inside, but admission fees apply. To be fair, since it is Italy there are so many alternative churches to see from the inside for free and are really nice, so can...More

Giotto's frescoes in the Scrovengi Chapel are one of the greatest art treasures of Italy. The local authorities have taken great pains to preserve them and the result is a reservation system that allows only a brief fifteen minute visit. This is hardly enough time...More

As an art history student, seeing Giotto's frescoes was a must-have item on my list for Italy. I travelled from Florence to see it, and while you only get 15 minutes to view the interior, it was well worth it. There is a good orientation...More

It is a unique work of art, very important in the history of art, and because it is the entire building as originally painted. But if you're only thinking of going because everyone says you must, you can see other terrific... More
