Practical info
Step into the breathtaking Baptistery of Padua's Cathedral and uncover a treasure trove of Italian art from the 14th century. The exquisite paintings that adorn its walls were commissioned by Fina Buzzaccarini, the wife of Lord Francesco da Carrara, and crafted by the skilled hands of Giusto de' Menabuoi. As you wander through this sacred space, a knowledgeable guide will bring the stunning frescoes to life, transporting you through the epic journey of Salvation, from the dawn of creation in Genesis to the majestic beauty of Paradise, which crowns the dome. The imposing Piazza Duomo complex, which encompasses the Cathedral and the Bishop's palace, stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of Christianity in Padua, a city steeped in history and tradition. Within the palace walls lies the Diocese Museum, featuring the awe-inspiring Bishops' Hall, which can be explored through an unconventional guided tour.
