Padova is a wonderful place to explore Italian culture without hoards of tourists. Start the day with a cappuccino and brioche in one of the many cafes, then take a trip to the Scrovegni Chapel to see the beautiful frescos by Giotto. You can only spend 15 minutes inside but will appreciate their beauty. You must book ahead online. Walk to Prato della Valle, the largest square in Italy, sampling an ice cream from the many gelaterias on Via Roma on the way. Visit the Basilica di Sant' Antonio, known as 'Il Santo', where among the artistry and statues you can see St Anthony's relics. Round off the day with the local drink, Spritz, a bitter drink of Aperol, prosecco and sparkling water. Bellissimo!
