  • I was told by a friend, an Italien architecht who studied in Florence, that Padua was the most beautiful city on earth - especially in terms of the built environment. After spending a week there, I entirely agree.
  • Absolutely beautiful church complex with remarkable works of art.
  • A humongous building, very well made and nicely decorated on the inside.
  • Neat but not a cool style.
  • Fabulous architecture.
