The historical centre of Padua (Padova) is a nice cultural site to visit when being in this region of Italy. however, it can be very crowded when some cultural events are scheduled. Visiting during weekdays would be my advise.

beautiful stroll in the old town with the biggest piazzas full of lovely bars and restaurants. We had spritz al fresco surrounded by a beautiful architecture and friendly atmosphere.

I came to Padua primarily to see the university, but the whole city is really beautiful. The main square fills with tables in the evening and is full at night even on a summer weekday. Definitely recommended!

The historic centre is lovely in Padova. Good vibe always. Easy to walk around and see the central piazzas and historic buildings and facades. Often overlooked in itineraries, Padova is worth a visit.

Parking in Centro Storico of Padua is limited. When we go to Padua we park the car in a huge multilevel car park close to the station. (There are several options besides this car park) Centro Storico is a 10 minutes walk... More
