  • The Cappela della Scrovegni contains paintings by Giotto. These are the first painting depicting people in a natural way. This is the birth of the renaissance era and perhaps deserves a visit more...  more »
  • The Chapel is a masterpiece from Giotto who was an extraordinary artist of the 14th century. You wait in an anteroom with an interesting introductory film. Must book - tickets are extremely limited...  more »

  • Hands down one of the best artistic experiences of my life. This timed visit showcases the frescoes with fantastic biblical narratives. I booked several visits on the same evening and was lucky enough to be the only visitor in the chapel for one of the sessions. What a gift!
  • This is a must go for anyone visiting the area. The chapel benefits from a rigorous conservation plan, that also allows visitors to enjoy the frescoes without any stress and crowd. The visit is well introduced by a nice multimedia area that is greatly informative and make the visit very interesting for kids. Great staff around!
