What You Can Expect

Padua City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Padua City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

This charming university city, the ancient "city of water" can now be discovered with a Hop-on Hop-off tour of Padua (Padova). Aboard our red buses, wonder at the ancient city walls and bridges within which many a past battle have been fought and discover the culture which has made the city's 12th century university one of the most famous in Italy. Prato Della Valle is reputed to be the largest square in Europe and is certainly stunning with its many statues gracefully adorning it. All around the city the "portici" the curious continuous arches shield from the summer heat and allow the visitor to browse in peace in the delightful shops before stopping for an aperitif or mid morning coffee at the prestigious Caffe Pedrocchi, the impressive cafe which up until 1916 never closed its doors!

Of course Padova is famous for its saint, Saint Antonio, known throughout as THE SAINT and whose shrine attracts millions of visitors every year. The impressive Basilica complex also houses famous works of art including three frescoes by Tiziano. How could we not mention the world famous Scrovegni Chapel which attracts flocks of visitors to gaze in awe at its stunning frescoes which have been majestically restored for the tourist's pleasure. Prepare to be stunned.

With great views from the top of the bus, strategically placed stops and an interesting commentary, this truly is the best way to see the sights of Padua.

You can hop-on and off as many times as you like aboard this open-top double-decker bus. There are 11 stops and the entire route takes approximately 60 minutes. The bus departs every 30 minutes from each stop. Tickets are valid for 24 hours from first use.
