If you are in Padova, you can not miss this place! It seems like a little blue Sistina Chappel. The ticket includes the access for two other museums nearby.

We went to the chapel to get tickets and were told by the woman at the desk that no tickets were available for another three days.She was quite officious and very unfriendly. After conferring with fellow travelers, we decided to purchase tickets for the next available time. When we went back to this woman, she informed us that we had... More

This chapel by Giotto is well worth the visit: spectacular frescoes, not inferior to the Sistine Chapel. You should book admission online from the chapel's' website: if you visit during off-peak season (as I did in October), you can actually stop by the chapel to change your booked time if your plans change. You get an introductory film, and are... More

We started our tour of Italy in Padua at the Scrovegni Chapel, and it set the stage for the rest of our Renaissance journey. 200 years before Michelangelo, Giotto created this masterpiece. The details in the background are clever and imaginative making the overall image more realistic. The colors are fresh and bright. Buy your tickets in advance online. You... More

The Scrovegni Chapel was nothing short of marvelous. The frescoes of Giotto fill the walls, and only small groups are allowed in at a time to help preserve the art. While the allotted time is short, it is enough.

Far too expensive and you are allowed just 20 minutes to visit,which is not enough for such an important site

Booked as part of our 72 hour Padua card, for first thing in the morning. Superb. Seen as one of a small group in peace and calm.

Definitely worth a visit and they even allow you to take photos.. WIth the controlled number of visitors at a time, you can take your time to appreciate the artistry.

It seems unlikely that just 20 minutes allocated to see this rainbow kaliedoscope of very old frescoes would do it justice, but after a introductory film in the museum and humidity controlled airlock we were confined to, the experience was well prepared and meaningful. That the Padua and restoring authorities have cared so well for this restored treasure is a... More

This is one of the finest examples of Giotto's work and not to be missed. It's best to buy tickets beforehand and make sure you arrive half an hour before your allotted time as you will need to leave your bags in the locker room. Entry to the chapel is very well managed and small groups taken in at regular... More
