  • Who bunt, pompous and glitter like, is right here. It was also just worship and singing was impressive. Also the cloisters for me very well. There are clean toilets and a shop for souvenirs.

  • Like whenever I have guests "Federer" I "tap" make must see to the Saint. I take this opportunity to discover every time some detail past sometimes unnoticed. Needless to add personal or other considerations when it comes to a place of pilgrimage for tourists from all over the world

  • Outside the Saint Peter's in Rome this might be the prettiest Church I've ever seen in Italy. You will never expect it to be so beautiful inside. Even though there was a ceremony going on the tourists were allowed to walk around and admire all of its beauty. If you go to Padova visiting this church is a MUST!
  • Very grateful for being able to visit the Tomb of my Confirmation Saint, St Anthony. You can tell that the Church is being run by people who are trying to run it into the ground by tuning it into a money machine but by people who genuinely care about the jewel they've been entrusted, which can't be said for a lot of other Churches throughout Italy. Appreciated the pamphlets offered at the entrance to the Church.
  • Very lovely place, good of tranquility. Very religious. I loved it and I can't wait to go back.
  • Must visit...the majestic basilica of St.Antony. You will get astonished by the architectural intelligence of the people of that time.
  • Dress yourself as for a church, the guards are strict. Well organized and good maintained. Enough toilets, prices in the shop almost better then outside in the "fake market". Good place for people trying to get help, say thank you and pray for relatives. Wish you all a glorious stay.
