  • Who bunt, pompous and glitter like, is right here. It was also just worship and singing was impressive. Also the cloisters for me very well. There are clean toilets and a shop for souvenirs.

  • Like whenever I have guests "Federer" I "tap" make must see to the Saint. I take this opportunity to discover every time some detail past sometimes unnoticed. Needless to add personal or other considerations when it comes to a place of pilgrimage for tourists from all over the world

  • Outside the Saint Peter's in Rome this might be the prettiest Church I've ever seen in Italy. You will never expect it to be so beautiful inside. Even though there was a ceremony going on the tourists were allowed to walk around and admire all of its beauty. If you go to Padova visiting this church is a MUST!
  • The Basilica of St. Anthony is beautiful from the outside and exceptionaly beautiful from the inside where ypu can see numerous funerary monuments. Relics of St Anthony are in the Baroque chapel. Beautiful ftecoes adorn the side chapels. A must.
  • What's a fantastic place is this a full body experience. This place is always and everytime a fascinating for the quantity of magnificent artwork and architecture the place is world wide know, crowds people visiting Every Corner of this place in silence and with surprise on the face to reel visiting this area you need few days
  • Beautiful visit and Mass. Great gift shop inside the cloister. The Franciscans are helpful and available.
  • Very good people friendly. Very difficult to get in and out of tub. Also temperature doesn't stay constant in in room.
