The cathedral, which exuded a hushed grandeur. The ceiling of the cupola was like no other I’d seen. Christ stood at the center surrounded by a literal host of saints in five concentric circles. The altar consisted of Giuliano Vanghi’s 1990s sculptures of saints in...More

I've been to the Baptistery 2 times because the frescoes are so beautiful and it's such a warm experience. It's only 3 euro and you can stay for hours. There's chairs to sit and view and save your neck and back from staring at the...More

The exterior architecture is very similiar to San Antonio and Santa Guistina, but again, the interior offers something unique. Not as ornately or lavishly decorated inside as San Antonio, but well worth seeing and here, photography is allowed and the church is free to visit.

This 12th century tower is located next to the Cathedral of Padua, on the Piazza del Duomo. It is dedicated to St. John the Baptist, but its major attraction is a series of frescoes by Giusto de Menabuoi, commissioned by Fina Buzzaccarini, widow of prince...More

Baptistery is in the center of Padua, just besides Duomo. As in many other Italian cities, the Baptistery building is older than the cathedral itself. You pay several euro for entering, and this is the best investment you can do in Padua. Frescos by Giusto...More

With only €3 you can see the amazing paintings in the 1200s in the small chapel. It’s very impressive.

The baptistery is very much worth a visit, especially after the Arena chapel. It is a central plan structure focused on the theme of baptism and redemption. Very much worth a visit!

The Duomo church itself is free and very modern to italy standards. There was no one there on a Monday and had the entire quiet church to ourselves.

We had the Baptistery to ourselves and it is beautiful. The building is perfect, the frescoes glorious. To be able to sit quietly and take in all the beauty of the place was wonderful. A must see but aim to be there early or late...More
