Travel Tips for Padova

Padova Tip

by mauro_pd

It was several years ago when I was part of a bloody blues band and we were around Padova for a concert ... one day after we were still there strolling the downtown and drinking that so famous white wine while in the main square ... GREAT !!! And I know the square should have a name but I cannot really remind it right now !!!!

Money matters....and change is 'king'

by mapakettle

We found upon arrival in Italy, that exact change will be requested when making a purchase. This is especially true when making purchases in a small store.
This is not always possible for you to provide, but don't be surprised if shopkeepers have to rummage about in their own purses or pockets in order to make change for a larger denomination.

Suggest you maintain a supply of 1 and 2 euro coins, as these seem to be most in demand. Shopping carts usually require a 2 euro coin in order to unlock it prior to use, as do the luggage carts at the airport.

Don't expect to pop into a store in Italy, and ask the clerk to 'break' a ten for you. Store employees have to wait in line at the bank just as you do, (and we have found that to be a long process), so expect the clerk to say no. They guard change carefully. Just a tip!!

Italian fresh meats...

by mapakettle

I don't wish to criticize, but have found, in general at least, fresh meats to be of poorer quality. I find beef to be tough, and poultry often to be the same. I was disappointed in the Florentine beef also, having tried it three times at different restaurants.

Sausages however, in whatever form, are excellent, whether dried, or fresh. Hams, no doubt... as are smoked pork chops which taste just like Canadian Ham steak, but more flavourful.

From questioning our Italian friends, they also believe that Beef is of a poorer quality, and blame it on the fact that cattle live their life tied up in a stationary manner, and never freely roam the fields. I am unable to confirm or deny these beliefs.

Caffé Pedrocchi

by Polly74

Once in Padua you should not miss the Café Pedrocchi, one of the most famous in Italy. It was constructed in 1831 (architect: Giuseppe Jappelli), and since then it has been an artists, intellectuals and students meeting point.

Este Museo

by BruceDunning

The museum is also called Museo Nazionale Atestino and opened first in 1902. In 1984 it was renovated. The displays are form the oldest to newer artifcacts. The first floor is of the town Este from prehjistoric times to the Veneto region when assembled. Ground floor is a Roman section that took control oof the area in 175 BC, and carries forward to 10th century period. There are some nice items to see, but the overall size is not large.
Entry is 3 Euro and open 9-16:00 daily
