Event > Padova: the City of Stars

PADOVA: THE CITY OF STARS Padova’s stars, from Giotto until today.
Not everyone know that Padova is not only the city of Saint Antony, but it’s also the city of stars.
Let’s discover it together with a cultural tour!
A magical itinerary in the heart of the city on the tracks of the past searching historic and artistic elements that make Padova full of stars.

Together with an expert guide starting from Cappella degli Scrovegni, frescoed between 1303 and 1305 by Giotto , where you can appreciate a magic starry sky that wrap all the ceiling, to the main seat of Univesity where Galileo Galilei’s desk is conserved, a big star in the ancient city’s story.

We’ll complete our stars tour with the visit of the Astronomical Observatory La Specola: from the top of the tower, there is a beautiful view on the town and the surrounding territory.
La Specola houses a University museum dedicated to astronomy, where various scientific instruments coming from different countries are displayed and reminds us the importance that astronomy had in town thanks to personalities as Pietro d'Abano, later with Galileo, who spent 10 years teaching and researching here, making some of his most important discoveries such as Jupiter's satellites.

Lunch in a typical restaurant in the historic city center.

Opportunity to extend the tour in the afternoon visiting Montegrotto:
transfer to Montegrotto Terme to discover an archeological area and overnight in a luxury thermal spa Hotel .
