Elegant Padova -- known in English as Padua -- is home to an ancient university, a Basilica that is an important centre for pilgrims and a chapel containing one of the world’s greatest art treasures. Use this website to help you plan a visit to this fascinating northern Italian city and find your way to the other beautiful towns and villages in the Veneto that are perhaps less well known to tourists.

Getting to Padua

From Venice’s Marco Polo airport you can take a bus to the railway station in Mestre and get a direct train to Padua. There are frequent services, some taking as little as 13 minutes.
A ticket on the Eurostar express train costs up to €15 but the local regionale services are much cheaper at €2.85, although the journey time is longer at around 35 minutes. 
If you hire a car at Marco Polo airport, take the A27 road, joining the A57 and then the A4 which runs directly to Padua, just over 50 kilometres away.
A taxi from Marco Polo airport to the centre of Padua costs approximately €90.
