Wonderful church..beautiful. Interior gardens and buildings around are also beautiful. We stayed for sometime and since it was Sunday there was lots of activity. We enjoyed the whole experience.

This is a very large building with what seemed like dozens of side chapels. I walked around a semi-circular path that I believe took me behind the altar. In one of those rooms (don't miss that one!) you go up a few stairs, then walk...More

This is one of the most beautiful church interiors I've ever seen in my travels, but I respected their request to not take photographs inside. There are several bronze sculptures by Donatello (including the crucifix), and multiple other sculptures and frescoes. It was not tacky,...More

A beautiful, huge basilica inside and outside. This is a working church as our visit coincided with Mass. On a personal level, I could do without the relics(skin, hair, finger)which somehow I find revolting but it was still amazing.

The Basilica takes your breath away, from the outside as much as from the inside. There is a small pamflet which has a sacred path you must take around the complex of bouildings this Basilica consists of.

This is a must see in Padova. There are many easy places to park near or if you take a train to town, it is a quick 8 Euro cab ride or about a 30 minute walk through mostly nice parts of town. Once inside,...More

When we were there they had lines for the confessionals, we did not go but I believe there were signs for English as well as Italian.
