Weekend trip to Padua

In the footsteps of saints and martyrs

This day is all about the religious significance of Padua. In the Basilica di Sant'Antonio and the Basilica di Santa Giustina rest the remains of many saints, martyrs, and even those of the evangelist Luke.

Day 2 in the morning:

  • The tour starts today in the centre at the Palazzo della Ragione, from where you walk down the boulevards of Via Roma and Via Umberto I to the Prato della Valle, the largest square in Padua.
  • At the southern end of the square is the Basilica di Santa Giustina. In addition to the remains of St. Giustina and many other martyrs, it also houses the tomb of the evangelist Luke.
  • East of the Prato della Valle is the Orto Botanico, one of the oldest botanical gardens in Europe, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

2nd day afternoon:

  • Another highlight in Padua is the Basilica di Sant'Antonio, which contains a unique cycle of frescoes by Altichiero and the relics of St. Anthony – it is therefore a pilgrimage site par excellence in Padua.
  • Worth a visit are the cloisters and museums such as the Museo Civico and the Museo Antoniano al Santo, which are connected to the Basilica.
  • On the piazza in front of the Basilica di Sant'Antonio is the Oratorio di San Giorgio, which is also completely painted with frescoes by Altichiero.

You can of course personalise this tour of Padua or extend and expand it at will. It leads to the main attractions of the city, which you should definitely see! In the numerous cafes and restaurants along the routes you can have a short break and relax.
