I love being spontaneous and not deciding on which city in Northern Italy to explore. We just got in our Jeep and headed towards Valdobbiadene.

An adventure in Padova
We had an appointment at the University of Padova in the late afternoon, so we were able to spend an hour or so exploring downtown Padova. Padova is not far from Treviso ~ about a 40 minute car ride on the autostrada or in English “highway”.
A few things Padova is known for :
Padova is home to Prato della Valle, which is the largest square in Italy and one of the largest in all of Europe.
Padova claims to be the oldest city in Northern Italy.
It was founded in 1183 BC
It hosts the renowned University of Padova which is over 800 years old.
