Firstly, make sure that you book in advance, you do not want to be disappointed by arriving without a ticket. From the outside, this chapel looks nothing like what awaits you once you are inside, the paintings of Giotta dating back to the 14th century...More

It is really impressive that such a small chapel may shelter such wonderful artwork. Giotto's paintings are marvelous. It is difficult to describe its grandeur. This is a mandatory place to visit in Padova. However, it is necessary to book in advance, online or through...More

The Giotto mosaics covering the entire interior of the Scrovegni Chapel are a true wonder. You must purchase a timed entry ticket which includes a mandatory 15 minute wait in an atmospherically controlled room (with a filmed introduction while you wait, followed by 15 minutes...More

My husband arranged in advance for us to visit this site while we were vacationing in Italy. I am so thankful that he did. The chapel itself is timed entry, and, while it seems that you might not have much time to take it in,...More

fabulous Giotto art like Sistine chapel but 200 years earlier. The tour guide pointed out to me personally the story painted onto the walls and ceiling by turning my shoulders to the right panel. Great art

The beauty of this chapel is hard to describe. It is a must see for art lovers. It's important to buy tickets ahead of the trip since the access is limited. It is somewhat hard to find and somewhat complicated process but once you are...More

Beautiful medieval frescoes, mostly still very well preserved. However, the environment has to be kept strictly controlled, so only a small group is allowed in at a time, and it's necessary to book your visit (for a specified dates and time of day) in advance.

This visit was the highlight of our trip to Padua. The Giotto frescoes are quite stunning and athough limited to a 15 minute visit, this does not detract. As you sit in the waiitn area where the temperature is adjusted, there is ample time to...More

It is a unique work of art, very important in the history of art, and because it is the entire building as originally painted. But if you're only thinking of going because everyone says you must, you can see other terrific... More
