The number one place to visit in Padua whether you are religious or not. Free entry but it would definitely be worth a visit even if there was a ticket to pay. Make sure you also visit the chiostro located next to the basilica.

Beautiful church and the priest was very kind. Even they don't let my dog go inside, the priest came out to bless him.

While we are not Catholic, but Methodists. You had to feel the presence of God. I try to ignore the glorification of man and view this beautiful sanctuary as a demonstration of God's power and love. Definitely worth a visit.

A really beautiful place inside and out. The statues were made by Donatello. It's a lovely place to see and quietly meditate. One of the most beautiful places we visited in Padova.

Yes . There is a large shop in the Basilica itself (you can’t get back into the Basilica from the shop so do the shop at the end ) and you can also sign up to the St Anthony’s Messenger in the shop. The exit from the shop... More
