Padua/Padova sightseeing

Jump to last reply

My parents will be in Padua for part of a day in October (arriving from Verona in the morning, then departing for Venice in the afternoon). I'm trying to come up with a list of places for them to visit. I have been to Padua 10 years ago, so my memory is a bit fuzzy (even though I took notes and wrote a trip report here :) )

Scrovegni Chapel (I will book their tickets online in advance) - the ticket also includes entrance to the Eremitani Museum & Palazzo Zuckermann. What is at the Palazzo (it wasn't included when I went 10 yrs ago). Would you say 1.5-2 hrs is plenty for all the above?

Duomo

Orto Botanico (my dad definitely wants to go there b/c it is a UNESCO site)
Basilica di Sant'Antonio

My recolleciton is that the 2 above are next to one another, but a bit of a distance from the train station and the town center. I know I took a bus there, can someone tell me which bus #? And can you buy the bus ticket on the bus? (10 years ago I got the Padova card, but I don't know if it's worthwhile for them)

I'm thinking that what they should do is:
Arrive at train station
Walk to Scrovegni Chapel, tour Eremitani museum & Palazzo Zuckermann
Walk to old town center, tour duomo, eat lunch
Bus to Orto Botanico & Basilica di Sant'Antonio
Bus back to train station

Does that sound like a reasonable plan?
