Of all the lovely churches in Padua, most with frescoes, this is the most elaborately decorated. Worth a long walk and free to visit.

Although not religious in anyway I like visiting basilicas and churches. Saint Anthony's is up there with the best. Brilliant paintings and sculptures throughout and although there was prayers and mass going on in never felt I was imposing on anybody throughout.

I had to visit the saint's 13th century basilica that my parents named me after and boy was I impressed. From the outside, it compares favorably to other top churches & basilicas in Europe. But, upon entry inside, I was overwhelmed from the ornate décor...More

We toured Sant'Antonio on a Sunday morning during a mass. The church was crowded, but it was easy to see the sights around the church. And the experience of the service made it more memorable. It's best to get a book beforehand to learn more...More

Like all European churches of this caliber, this church does not fail to impress. Despite the numerous fires that have wreaked havoc on its interiors, they have done a decent job restoring it to glory. Not just relics but the whole body of St.Antonio de...More

This Church was wonderful to visit. The tomb of St.Anthony was overwhelming with its marble reliefs. Absolutely beautiful to see. Watching the procession of people who wanted to touch the tomb and/or leave a message to the Saint was a moving experience. The emotion of...More

I believe you can get there by train from Venice. Do you need to purchase tickets to enter the Basillica. If so, can they be purchased in advance.

Ideas on how to spend 3 nights in Padua. I would like to see as much of St Anthony's Basilica and attend all attractions there. I would like it to be a pilgrimage. An itinerary including costs would be great as I do not want to miss anything. Thanks in advance
