Hopped a train from Milan to Padua.... Podava to Italians
Faux modern and fantastic dining at Hotel Al Fagiano. It felt like an art gallery with crazy, sexy modern art everywhere.
Spires of Basilica of St. Anthony....where the bells tolled on the quarter hour 24 hours a day!
Near the Basilica is the Orto Botanico Botanical Garden. This nearly five-acre botanical garden was founded in 1545 to cultivate medicinal plants. It is the world's oldest botanical garden still in its original location.
Gingo Biloba circa 1750
Secret Garden Path
Just one view of the bounty within this garden
Padua doors.....so inviting
A town of narrow streets and covered walkways
We spent three nights in Padua but I needed much longer to ingest the beauty of the town's university, museums, churches, tombs and palazzos.
