We took the bus to the city center to meet up with our local guides.  Padua was one of the locales in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.  There is a 13th century university and what is thought to be the oldest Italian clock. It dates back to 1344 and is in the tower at Palazzo del Capitano. Padua’s patron saint is Saint Anthony the patron saint of lost things.  We also went on a tour of St Anthony church where I couldn’t take photos.  I did get to touch where he is was put in the alter.  I also tried their famous coffee.

I am a freelance travel writer and photographer. I love to travel with my loving husband. I like to see how the locals live better than going on tours.
