  • In front of the Town Hall, and near the caffè Pedrocchi, this historical University, which is the second sort in Italy after Bologna, enchants with its arcades, with heraldic coats of arms of the ancient courtyard surrounded by students, and the terrace where they graduated. You can book guided tours, which is useful to know thoroughly the whole story.

  • Storico
  • The historical part of the University of padova has his heart in the palazzo Bo where Galileo taught and where he still is kept his professorship and his courtroom. During the period of the degrees it is wonderful to see the traditional papyrus and the staging of students celebrating the graduates. Only in Padua the crowns of laurels, colored hats with the color of each faculty, eggs, flour, shaving cream, lipstick and males filled with scotch, the girls almost naked actresses bath forbidden in the fountains of the squares ... Today the police checks that do not do damage to monuments when there are master's degrees and supervise the improvised parties in squares. Once was truly phenomenal assist duna graduated from Bo in Padua
