PROVINCIA DI PADOVA


The Province of Padua, the most densely populated in the Veneto Region, is located in a strategic position at the centre both of the main axes of communication in the Region and of an infrastructure and economic network with a strong potential. It is therefore a privileged centre of attraction, only a  30-minute drive from Venice and Vicenza, 50 minutes from Treviso and Verona, 60 minutes from the sea and Lake Garda.

Further information
The territory of the Province of Padua with its 104 municipalities testifies to over 3,000 years of history through a dense intertwining of evidence: medieval walled towns, ramparts, villas, castles, parks, monuments, frescoed chapels, oratories, treasures preserved in the churches.
The Province of Padua has established a network of museums with the intent to make its cultural and environmental heritage more accessible to everybody. Museums are seen as alive and living spaces, places of science or history, but also as relaxing spots to spend some time with family and friends, to discover many oddities and the beauties of Padua and the Euganean Hills.
The centuries-old culinary tradition of Padua is rooted in the simple products of the courtyard and of the vineyard, in the fruits of the season, and in some areas in the wild herbs, of which the Euganean Hills are rich. You can relish the delights of agricultural production and the culinary tradition of Padua on traditional holidays or during the countless food and wine events: the Euganean Hills and Bagnoli Wine Roads, the dairies, exquisite products such as the variegated radicchio "Fior di Maserà", the cold cuts, the sweet potato of Anguillara and Stroppare, the white and green Asparagus, the pear and the apple from Castelbaldo, the ham from Montagnana, the olive oil of the Euganean Hills, and not least, the renowned hens Padovana and Polverara, the farms, the taverns, the restaurants, the hotels and the specialty shops.
Handicraft is a widespread activity in the territory, so that Padua  can be seen as a real "artisan province" whose strengths are represented by tradition, creativity and technical skill. Woodworking - also linked to the production of musical instruments - is quite widespread and sophisticated.
