La Finestra sul Fiume is a five-bedroom B&B, a short walk from the villages of Borghetto and Valeggio and within easy driving distance of Lake Garda, Verona and Mantua.

4 days in delightful Padua

Parks, gardens, arcaded streets and Renaissance squares all vie for attention in Padua.

Everyday life centres around the medieval market squares of Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza della Frutta, both at their most beautiful in early morning and just two of the numerous piazzas that characterise the historic centre of Padua. A visit to the neighbouring medieval Palazzo della Ragione is a must, both for the food stalls on the ground floor and the magnificent frescoed great hall on the upper floor.

 

The city is equipped with cycle paths that make it very suitable for exploring on two wheels, it's even possible to cycle all the way to Venice along the Brenta river.

 

Our choice for Padua is the boutique Belludi 37, just a few steps from St Anthony's  Cathedral and the best of Padua
