Depart by motorcoach to Prato della Valle, Padua’s largest square, where you’ll meet your guide. A short walk will lead you to the Piazza del Santo to visit St. Anthony Basilica, the great religious complex built to house the relics of Padua’s beloved St. Anthony. Its composite style reveals Romanesque-Gothic motifs as well as Oriental influxes. Its interior is highlighted by more of Donatello’s masterful bronze relieves, as well as by his statue of the Madonna and Saints on the high altar. Just outside the basilica, you’ll also see Donatello’s 15th century statue of mercenary Gattamelata, which greatly influenced sculpture during the Italian Renaissance.


Your walking tour will proceed to the old heart of Padua to see the animated area of the University, one of the oldest in the world; the celebrated Caffe Pedrocchi, meeting place for intellectuals and patriots since the 19th century; and Piazza delle Erbe, Padua’s bustling open-air market which overlaps into Piazza della Frutta. The huge building separating the two squares is Palazzo della Ragione, the town parliament for several centuries. After your walking tour, you’ll have some time at leisure before your transfer to the airport.


Need to Know:

Note: The order of sights may vary. Lecturing is not permitted inside the basilica, so your guide will provide an explanation from the outside, and then lead the group along a set course inside the basilica. The tour cannot enter the basilica on church holidays, or in case of unexpected religious functions; however if the church permits, and time permitting, you may be allowed to enter on an individual basis. There are approximately 10-15 steps inside the basilica. Guests who are planning to visit religious sites during free time or on tour, please dress appropriately; no bare shoulders or shorts are allowed. This tour is only available for guests with flights after 3pm from the Venice Marco Polo Airport.
