  • Advise to start from 3rd floor and the first exhibition that you come across, one of the bishops, it's just extraordinary, the clerk very helpful for various clarifications. The Hall is adorned with portraits of 100 bishops of Padova in boxes by 2 bishops each. During the holiday season always in the lounge was exhibited a painting of "the adoration of the Magi" 16th century Venetian painter, almost identical to that of Mantegna (tempera on canvas) original preserved in Los Angeles. At the side of the Salon two chapels, one of which (1495) with tiled floor (white/blue) Faenza with the coat of arms of the Bishop. To see
