Short trip to Padua full of art and spritzes

Surely the Scrovegni Chapel is the most famous monument in Padua, but it is certainly not the only one that deserves your attention: in front of the Basilica of Sant’Antonio, for example, you can admire the Equestrian Monument to Gattamelata that Donatello made in bronze. If you like art, you cannot miss the Palazzo della Regione whose interior is completely frescoed and which preserves the famous "Pietra del Vituperio" on which all the debtors of the city were once publicly humiliated. One of the most scenic spots in Padua is certainly Prato della Valle: the verdant central square is Isola Memmia, surrounded by a canal and reachable via small bridges.
