The bus stop in piazza erbe 5 was not there so we had to keep scanning the road for the bus. However, the driver was incredibly helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, the church on one of the stops was closed. As the buses only run every hour or so we had to walk to our next destination. It’s advisable to check the different times at the stops.

is that it has been a pleasure to get to know Padua and the chapel with Valeria, the guide who gave us a lesson in art history and knowledge of the city. A pleasure and a unique experience
