  • One of the masterpieces of Western art, a major fresco cycle, needs more than 13 minutes for viewing. They claim it's 15 minutes, not true. And of course 15 minutes wouldn't be enough either.

  • My daughter and I visited the Scrovegni Chapel this morning and what an amazing place it is. We were extremely fortunate to have RUGGERO R as our guide, who went above and beyond to ensure that we got the most from the experience - we were very appreciative. I thoroughly recommend if you are visiting Padova.
  • One of a kind art treasure. Countless details. Educate yourself about it before you go and you will get much more from the time controlled experience. Do buy tickets on line ahead. Time slots do fill up. No ticket, no visit.
