The chapel itself is stunning . The only issue is that you only get 15 mins to look at it which is not a lot considering the price . We also got confused about getting in - you have to enter by the museum entrance...More

This chapel is very interesting to see Giotto's frescas. Beautiful paintings and artworks. A must to see in Padova while visiting.

The must-see attraction of Padova, the chapel is worthy of a detour, although one is allowed in the chapel for 15 minutes only. It is best to reserve in advance.

To view the Gotti paintings in the Scrovegni chapel, you have to pre-book and this cannot be booked for the same day! Go for an early (9am or 9:15am) slot for the least crowded experience - although don't be late, they are militant when it...More

It is the touristic highlight of Padova. Unfortunately, you have to buy your ticket in advance. I arrived at lunch time, and the tickets were already finished. As I was in Padova for other reasons, I couldn't buy a ticket in advance.

Incredible restoration; a must if you visit Padua. Collect tickets in advance; arrive 20 mins before your timed slot.

As mentioned by many other reviews this chapel is incredible. The shear detail and art is incredible and can be appreciated by all. You need to make reservation ahead of time or you won’t be able to get in.

We came to Padua on a spur-of-the-moment day trip from Venice in mid-December with no plans to visit this chapel. But the woman at the railroad station's Tourist Information Office highly recommended that we try to get tickets. So we went directly to the chapel,...More

It is the right place to “jump back” in time, to allow colours to hug you in an astonishing and breathtaking 20 minutes journey. It is not inexpensive though, but I think it is worth it. Recommended only for children able to stay quiet and...More
