Padua Urbs Picta, the painted city, the city of frescoes. The great master Giotto and his followers literally transformed this city into a fresco that bears witness to the history of civilisation on our planet. The extraordinary pictorial cycle of the Scrovegni Chapel is the highlight of an absolutely unique and unmissable itinerary that is completed by the Palazzo della Ragione and the Church of the Eremitani. And if that were not enough, the world's oldest university botanical garden stands in the centre of the city of Padua
