With its nearest airport being Marco Polo in Venice, Padua is best reached by road as there is no train station available at the airport. There are a series of buses which link with Padua – as well as sightseeing buses operating within the city. If you are considering hiring a car, be aware that the city has a Limited Traffic Zone at its centre, which is open only to those possessing a permit.

The city has active measures to help reduce traffic and emissions, such as a car-sharing service and a ‘Good Bike Padua’ scheme which is a bike-sharing service operating throughout the city 24 hours a day.

Nightlife 

Unsurprisingly, Padua is brimming with Italian cafes and restaurants which specialise in providing quality wine and welcoming atmospheres. Since 1831 Caffe Pedrocchi has served delicious coffee, wines and pastries to Padua’s visitors and locals alike. A more youthful venue to visit is the Amsterdam café, which serves beers and cocktails in a bar with a trendy, contemporary feel.

Weather

Padua is particularly popular from June to August for its Mediterranean temperatures and clement climate. Like many Italian cities, Padua is partly cloudy year-round but is susceptible to particularly cold winters due to its exposed location.  

What else is Padua known for?

Economy

As the capital of the province, Padua is the economic powerhouse of the area and has a population of 214,000. The city is undergoing investment and improvement in a variety of areas, from available transport to the provision of digital services. Its university continues to produce skilled workers in the region, who in turn are helping to develop the city’s infrastructure and employment levels.

History

Claimed by many to be the oldest city in Northern Italy, Padua was supposedly founded in 1183BC by a Trojan prince. The city has experienced many wars, and as a result, there are many fascinating historical landmarks to see. The 14th century preached St. Anthony is buried in the beautiful Basilica di Sant’Antonio, which features Romanesque, Gothic and Byzantine architecture. Padua is also home to Europe’s largest medieval hall – the Palazzo Della Ragione.

Padua’s university was founded in 1222 and was in fact where the first woman in the world graduated from a university - in 1678. The university also boasts the world’s oldest botanical garden, which was established in 1545. To this day the garden is home to many rare and exotic plants.
