Here water features, tree-lined avenues, fountains, the intricate labyrinth and the statues come together harmoniously in an allegorical path of "Salvification" along which the visitor, traveling through various stages, from the Portal of Diana to the Statue of Winged Time up to the fountain of the Dolphins, is guided in the symbolic liberation from sins. Later we will move to visit Villa dei Vescovi in Luvigliano di Torreglia: a precious gem set in the Euganean Hills, an ancient holiday residence of the Paduan high prelates that dates back to the first half of the sixteenth century.

Padua Private Walking Tour With A Professional Guide

Padua Private Walking Tour With A Professional Guide

Being in the shadows of Venice has its ups and downs. The disadvantage is that Padua sometimes gets ignored. On the flip side, that means that its visitors can enjoy a nice and quiet visit without the hustle and bustle from its famous neighbor. Although only an hour away from Venice, Padua seems a world apart with its medieval marketplaces, fascist era buildings and Italy’s second oldest University. Not to forget that it is also the resting place of Saint Anthony, the patron saint of the illiterate, the poor, the finder of lost things, and of blessed weddings. Be sure not to get lost and walk in the footsteps of Galileo, Giotto, St. Anthony or Titian and discover why this city challenged both Venice and Verona for regional hegemony.
