  • Accompanied by a volunteer of the Touring, which turned out to be a connoisseur of art, we could fully enjoy the visit. Thanks again for this nice volunteer

  • This museum really should be on everyone's visitors list, it would be a shame to miss this, not only for the works of art but above all by the's interior decoration of the building itself

  • Diocesan Museum of Padua is certainly recommended to those who maintain a minimum stay of one night in this city. We visited after entering the nearby Cathedral and Baptistery. The Museum houses important works of art. The Museum is, in our opinion, a little dated. Tourist directional signs in the old town is largely absent. Friendly and helpful staff. From your bookshop.
