Try to read a little about this treasure before you visit. The information within the Baptistery is very sparse. Entry is 3 Euro and only 2 if you are above 65 years.

Apparently unfinished inside. If you have limited time in Padua and are in need of looking at cathedrals, I'd suggest skipping this and going to Santa Giustina and Sant'Antonio.

Very interesting depictions of paradise, hell and all the other mumbo jumbo in vivid colours. Not to be missed. From my point of view better than the Scrovegni chapel If you get a museums pass for 24 hours you'll get free entrance.

The plain facade of the cathedral doesn't even begin to hint at the artistic treasure concealed in this baptistry. The interior is a medieval splendor not to be missed. There are ceiling to floor frescoes that make one feel as if one is in the...More
