Waking a walk along the streets of the town always arouses wonders: the Basilica of St. Anthony, patron of the town, the Chapel of Scrovegni displaying precious paintings by Giotto, the museums, the ancient churches and the charming squares, they are all places to be visited. Nature lovers cannot miss a visit to the Orto Botanico (Botanical Gardens) where rare and old plants are to be admired. Among all, just a mention to the Palm of St. Peter which dates back to 1585, year of the opening of the gardens. In the Archaelogical Museum you can breath the air of ancient art: pre-Roman and Roman finds, Venetic steles and Egyptian treasures are displayed. Same air also to be breathed in the Roman amphitheatre, where once gladiatorial performances were held. It was destroyed almost totally in the Middle Age when its materials were taken away and used to erect other buildings. The museum of medieval and modern art offers a general view on the Venetian painting: the Cross by Giotto, the paintings by Tintoretto and by Tiepolo, they are just some of the unique masterpieces displayed there.
