The City of Padua

Padua is located in the north-east of Italy, just 37 km from the city of Venice, in an area renowned for its natural beauty and historical sites.

Numerous visitors come to Padua every year, attracted by its lively cultural life, its medieval town center with its abundance of elegant shops and traditional markets, pleasant cafes and restaurants. Wandering through Padua’s cobbled streets and beautiful squares is a unique, fascinating experience. Come and visit its lovely historical buildings and churches, enjoy an aperitivo in one of its splendid squares, and be enchanted by Giotto’s amazing frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel. Padua is all this, and more!

Padua is home to one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Italy, founded in 1222. Many eminent alumni have found Padua an ideal cultural environment for their studies, including Erasmus of Rotterdam, Nicolaus Copernicus, and Galileo Galilei. Thousands of students still choose Padua as the place for their academic education, and their presence makes Padua a young and lively city.
