What to do in Padua

 

Here’s what I do in Padua – known as Padova in Italian – I wander, I eat, and I admire the city’s beauty. Just 20 minutes by train from Venice, the city of Padua is one of northern Italy’s best-kept secrets. Like Bologna and Perugia, it’s a nice-sized (a misura d’uomo, or walkable) university town with great energy, good food and impressive art. Spend a day: you’ll leave satisfied.
