Sightseeing in Province of Padua

Historic Site
“The Basilica Palladiana is a Renaissance building in the central Piazza dei Signori in Vicenza, north-eastern Italy. The most notable feature of the edifice is the loggia, which shows one of the first examples of what have come to be known as the Palladian window, designed by a young Andrea Palladio, whose work in architecture was to have a significant effect on the field during the Renaissance and later periods”

Plaza
“Even if this piazza is by far the most elegant of Padua, you can still enjoy some cheap spritz and appetizers, sitting under the Clock Tower”

Garden
“Planted in 1545 by Padua University’s medical faculty to study the medicinal properties of rare plants, Padua’s World Heritage–listed Orto Botanico served as a clandestine Resistance meeting headquarters in WWII. The oldest tree is nicknamed ‘Goethe’s palm’; planted in 1585, it was mentioned by the great German writer in his Italienische Reise (Italian Journey). A much more recent addition is the high-tech Garden of Biodiversity, five interconnected greenhouses that recreate different climate zones and explore botanical and environmental themes via multimedia displays.Be aware that even with a PadovaCard, you still have to pay €5 admission.”

Church
“Si può raggiunge questo luogo solamente a piedi anche dal versante nord partendo dal Santuario della Madonna. Il percorso vi condurrà attraverso sentieri ben delineati ma che attraversano boschi e radure di notevole bellezza, portandovi a scoprire un luogo unico nel suo genere. Questo piccolo oratorio dove si dice che via abbia passato la sua vita da eremita Sant'Antonio Abate, vi donerà sicuramente serenità e pace. Bellissima anche la grotta che si trova a fianco.”

Market
“The spectacular local market of Padua called Sotto il Salone is under the amazing Palazzo della Ragione. Locals have been buying food there for more then 800 years. The architecture is amazing, the colors and smells too. Get a coffee or a glass of wine & some cichetti in one of the bars and you will feel like a local.”
