I read about the Scrovengi before coming to Padova and purchased our tickets on-line and three months in advance for euro 13 each. I was semi-prepared and thought I was "educated" about what I would see. Nevertheless, I had the sense and good fortune to reserve a local guide who is a Padovan native to speak to us ahead of...

Book in advance, consists of 15 minutes spend in the waiting room with a short film and 15 minutes inside. Art is fantastic, the color is like few other chapels, very vibrant. Short visit, lasting impact and memory, well worth it.

I won't repeat the sterling reviews of Giotto's artwork, but I will mention one practical matter: it can be difficult to find the entrance to the ticket office. If you arrive by tram you have a choice to walk either right or left. The answer is, "Walk to the right." Unfortunately there are no signs at the tram stop and... More

Cappella degli Scrovegni. Giotto's masterpiece. Absolutely worth the visit. Book online well in advance. A limited time visit introduced by a short video presentation. beautifully restaured frescos

The Scrovegni Chapel, a masterpiece in the history of painting in Italy and Europe in the 14th century, is considered to be the most complete series of frescoes executed by Giotto in his mature age. Colour and light, poetry and pathos. Man and God.

While paying respect to his grand standing as a forefather of realism in painting I am not a fan of Giotto. Yet the Scrovegni Chapel ensemble of frescoes in its entirety is overwhelmingly beautiful. The frescoes are nicely restored and the lighting is excellent. No flash photography is allowed. It's a pity the visit lasts only 15 minutes, barely enough... More

Great visit. Padua has paid a lot of attention in preserving this small jewel which hosts Giotto paintings. The entire visit is very well organized but you have to book in advance. In the middle of the gardens on the nearby river who deserve a visit by themselves

This is really different and worth seeing. There is a 15 minute video beforehand and then you are let into the Chapel for 15minutes. I would advise getting the audio to take you through each of the scenes on the walls. We didn't. I read about it after but it would have been better to have the information there with... More

The chapel provides a great visit for anyone interested in murals or even Dante. It's fun to sort out the different stories and to marvel at the ceiling. Even the entry chamber adds to the experience. It's not enough for a trip solely for the purpose of visiting, but it should be on your list of not-to-miss.
