  • A historic house to see. There is a chance to watch the video in which he explains the story of Petrarch. Recommended

  • While visiting the village of Arquà Petrarca, on a rainy day we discovered la casa del Petrarca. Was just us to carry out the visit but the lady was very nice and comprehensive. Interesting film about the poet's life. The rooms have opened a gap on the private life of Petrarch. A visit which I recommend.

  • Located in the upper part of the small village of Arquà, immersed in the greenery and quiet of the Euganean Hills, was the final resting place of the poet. The two storey house is small in size with a small garden. Inside there is a Museum and you can attend the screening of a video explanation. Not to be missed if you pass by here.

  • La casa del Petrarca is undoubtedly beautiful: the entrance, dominated by garden, door to admire the facade with stairs leading to the upper floors where you will find some important relics of the life and works of the great master, including mark the reconstruction of his studio, which brings back memories of his works. The interiors are well maintained and well lit and also the cost of ticket €4.00 is a sustainable amount. We have made the visit on a cold and rainy day but the beauty of the place is definitely better with the sunshine! A must see if you go to Arquà!

  • Located in the village of Arquà Petrarca. It's a pretty House well renovated. With a small garden. Inside there are frescoes dating back to the period when Petrarch lived there. Two vintage ' finds ' kept in a room not accessible but with two glass doors that allow their view. You can watch a video that explains in a short life is the last years of the life of poet and writer.

  • A well cared for and is particular in the footsteps of the last years of the great poet. Original wooden ceilings and frescos. Beautiful village around the village, to explore on foot (beware of many roads uphill) to catch glimpses to capture even more striking in the clear and sunny day and with the warm colors of autumn. Great romantic walk too ...
