Departure from Venice Piazzale Roma with private transfer, heading to Padua, approx. 40 Km. Guided tour in the Scrovegni Chapel, Italian and European 14th century masterpiece, considered the most complete cycle of frescos realized by the great Tuscan master Giotto. The Chapel’s pictorial cycle is developed in three main themes: episodes from the life of Joaquim and Anne, the life of Mary and the life and death of Christ.
Lunch in a restaurant downtown.
In the afternoon, visit to the Saint Anthony’s Basilica, that locals call the Saint. It’s the main monument in Padua and one of the greatest artistic masterpiece worldwide. It is possible to follow a real artistic path inside it: Saint Anthony’s Chapel or Arc’s Chapel, the Black Madonna’s Chapel, the Blessed Luke’s Chapel, the Remains’ Chapel or Treasure’s Chapel, the Presbytery and the High Altar. We’ll have a walk to Prato della Valle, among the largest squares in Europe, where we’ll admire its double ring of statues. In the end, Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza della Frutta, the city’s traditional commercial centres. On our way back, we’ll stop in Noale, the town that more than any other brings back the medieval atmosphere in Venice’s district. Here, we’ll visit the Tempesta’s Castle, built to contain the attempts of raids from the towns around. Return to Venice.
