This is such a beautiful place - make sure you book your tickets as the amount of people allowed in is strictly monitored and get there on time - you are only allowed to stay there for a short amount of time and it goes...More

Almost a world heritage site, this is a stunning chapel painted by Giotto a good 700 years ago. It rivals the Sistine chapel in a way. So glad we went

If you're visiting Padua the one place you cannot miss is the Scrovegni Chapel, the main attraction of course being the unfathomably beautiful fresci by Giotto. The ticket gets you a 15-minute visit of the Chapel, preceeded by a 15-minute introduction video you have to...More

The chapel was a wonderful place to visit even though we had to book 2 hours in advance. You have 15 minutes to look at the frescoes inside before another group enters. The frescoes are wonderful and in the museum you can read all about...More

The frescoes themselves are magnificent. Anyone who took an Art History 101 class in college will recognize these as representing the turning point from medieval sensibility to Renaissance sensibility in Italian art. It was thrilling to see them in the "paint" instead of in an...More

It's better to visit as late as possible since there are few people there.There is no windows in the chapel it does not make any differences what time of the day to be there.

Firstly, make sure that you book in advance, you do not want to be disappointed by arriving without a ticket. From the outside, this chapel looks nothing like what awaits you once you are inside, the paintings of Giotta dating back to the 14th century...More

It is really impressive that such a small chapel may shelter such wonderful artwork. Giotto's paintings are marvelous. It is difficult to describe its grandeur. This is a mandatory place to visit in Padova. However, it is necessary to book in advance, online or through...More

It is a unique work of art, very important in the history of art, and because it is the entire building as originally painted. But if you're only thinking of going because everyone says you must, you can see other terrific... More
