Close to Venice yet not entirely overshadowed by the Serenissima, Padua unfolds around a delightful medieval centre dotted with little squares and palaces. It is renowned for the Scrovegni family Chapel, adorned with frescoes by Giotto and the basilica of St Anthony, where the city's patron saint is buried. At sunset, scores of students invade the streets and cafés, a reminder of the prestigious intellectual and scientific history of this university city, one of the oldest of Europe.
