Excursions and Local Attractions
Padova is a wonderful city, a mix of art, culture, nature, science and
spirituality.The vast majority of interesting sights is concentrated in the
city centre (10/15 minutes walking from my apartment. Almost all interesting sites could be reached on foot but you could take public transport or use the Sightseeing City Bus that travels through the main points of interest and can be taken either for a complete tour or as a "hop in-hop out" link from one site to another. Things to visit in Padova are: The Eremitani complex, The St. Anthony's area, Prato della Valle, The Specola, The Cathedral area, The heart of the city and its squares and Palaces, The University Building and the Caffè Pedrocchi. From
Padova you can easily visit: Treviso 55 km, Venice 39 km, Vicenza 42 km, Verona and the Garda Lake around 90 km, by Train and buses.
