Padua is a place of many colors and drawings. It is considered the city of frescoes and if you like to admire sacred buildings, decorated private and public palaces, this is the place to be. You can stroll down the city’s center and visit one of many basilicas, observe beautiful palaces and relax in the park.
If you’re up for a bit different experience, then there’s the Museum of living insects and the Butterfly Arc with thousands of butterflies. Moreover Venice is only 40 km away, so you can plan more than few one-day excursions when staying in Padua.
