Walked through here a couple of times and sat people watching. The first was a public holiday and the volunteers on patrol were blowing whistles at people cycling through. Everyone obeyed leading me to wonder what punishment could be enforced if someone rebelled. We went...More

During my visit to Padua I have spent many times in this park. Enjoyed the sunny weather and cooled in the shade of the trees. Visited the market around the park and admired the many statues in the area. On the last day they started...More

...what this is! It's like an ancient running track that's now a circular canal, with ornate bridges and many, many statues, sitting in the middle of a vast esplanade. Regardless of what it's for, it's worth a stop to see. Some of the statues are...More

Nice "park" in Padua with water canal and fairgrounds. You can buy there flowers, cloth or food. It's sometimes a location of festivals .

It feels like a walk through time. Statues are well preserved, gravel rock paths and a cute river boarding it in. The fountain is gaudi and fits in.

Trees, sculptures, water and relaxing nice people on the grass. Peaceful but also busy. In the middle of an open space where people are jogging, biking, walking... School children were making watercolours under the trees. Fun to watch.

Great town square with sculptures of important people that lived in Padua or thought at the local university. The whole impression of the square is ruined by the market place stands that are posted there every Saturday.

Not much can be said about this area. Nice open space and lots of folk. Statues were all to people I'd never heard of.
