This chapel is next door to St Anthony's Basilica. It was a 5 euro each entrance fee, but it was well worth it. Only drawback- not allowed to photograph inside. I guess they want your to buy their guide book with pictures- which of course...More

A little hard to find as you have to purchase the ticket in the chapel next to it. Hardly any tourists find it but

A beautiful chapel, decorated in frescoes from 1376 (most of them in very good condition) presenting scenes from the lives of s. George, Catherine, Lucy and The Holy Family. There are not many tourists, probably because the entrance costs 3 EUR :) Go there!

Built in 1374 & not changed at all .The ceiling and walls are decorated with frescoes painted by Altichiero da Zevio . Worth a visit but 5 euro entry compared to free for the Basilica next door that is amazing seems comparatively expensive .

Interesting, but felt superfluous after visiting the Santo next door. I think only 5 euro for the Oratorio and Scoletta. If saving money, just opt for the Scoletta. The Santo is free.

The Oratorio and the Scuola di Saint Anthony are fabulous! You enter into the Oratorio and then the guide will take you upstairs to the scuola. No pictures allowed! (Unless you are crafty). The frescoes are fabulous and much older than what you will find...More
