  • It is a treasure trove of art and culture that is absolutely preserved and preserved. An incommenfiable value and everything that is put in place to preserve it is absolutely justified. Right then, that access is allowed to small groups of people on reservation, just that the environment is maintained at the right temperature and that you can not use the flash for photos.

  • Amazing! 15 minutes is not enough time. But it is what you get. We walked in at 6 pm on a Monday. Possibly it was a holiday of which we were not aware because the hours posted showed Monday to be closed except for holidays. Like others, we bought our tickets from someone who was almost combative. Comparatively small if you are thinking an Italian cathedral. This is simply a chapel. Photos are allowed. I would expect that this is deservedly the number one thing to see or do in Padova.
  • This is one of the first examples of the Renaissance. In order to enter, a prior reservation is required on the internet, and before the entrance is waiting 15 minutes in the air-conditioned room. Staying in Chapel is 15 minutes too. The frescoes painted by Giotto are impressive.
