Padova (or Padua) was one of the tourist attractions that we were not prepared for. Being impressed and tired after visiting Venice for two days, we did not research Padova very well, so we came ill prepared for what the city had to offer. Padova, Italy is a large city with beautiful tourist attractions which makes for a great day trip from Venice if you have an extra day. Padova, has three large areas with attractions, each within 15 minutes walking distance from each other. Read on about my walking tour of Padova, Italy.
Padova lies about on hour drive from Venice in Northern Italy. It is very easy to reach Padova from the A4 motorway and we just followed the signs to the main square in Padova. We arrived in Padova, Italy on a very hot day in August. We did whatever we could to escape the heat. Even though we didn’t have much time to walk around we enjoyed Padova, Italy very much. The amazing Pratto della Valle square fascinated us with all many and beautiful sculptures.
