  • Incredible history, one of the first “independent” universities of Europe where luminaries from all over Europe and some beyond those countries come to study law and medicine without religious associations. Profound anatomy theatre in wood, that has survived until this day. Stunning halls where Galileo came to teach, claiming this to be one his favorite places and experiences of his lifetime. Tours available in English and comes with ticket purchase. Don’t miss this if you are in Padua, such interesting walls as well where many of the graduating class has created plaques commemorating their years there. University is still operational today which makes it even cooler!
  • It is the main office of University of Padua where you can obtain its entire history. There are guided tours every 2 hours (it depends on days of week) in English and Italian. The tour is free for students of University.
