  • We visited the Museum, in truth not widely known even among us Padovani, taking advantage of a special offer on Grupon. The Museum is located next to the Cathedral inside the Palace which already alone is well worth the visit. The frescoes and the paintings are generally excellent, some of the best known masters of the 17th and 18th century. Interesting also the vestments on display. Has its own uniqueness, even the "Hall of bishops" where are depicted in wonderful frescoes the first 100 bishops of Padova. To visit, deserves.
