If you have any interest in art history, then you must visit Padua and go to Cappella degli Scrovegni. The chapel was built by the wealthy Enrico Scrovegni for his father who was denied burial in an existing church due to his occupation as moneylender. Scrovegni did it his own way and he did it well, employing the wonderful painter Giotto to fresco all the walls inside the chapel.
