Fascinating! That’s how we can define this incredible city that is Padua. It is a city full of history, culture and important religious value. Padua is a treasure and it’s considered the City of Frescoes, thanks to the generous presence of frescoes in churches and buildings in the city. In addition, it is the city dedicated to St Anthony.

Padua is, in general, very well structured for tourists. It offers several options for all budgets and tastes. The tours are peaceful and the city is easy to explore. Choose, whenever possible, to get to know the city on foot, each corner has a pleasant surprise and the city’s architecture draws attention. The city is undoubtedly well organized and very well served when it comes to accommodation, gastronomy, entertainment and sights, in addition to being, in general, very safe.

1) Where to sleep in Padua? NEXT TO BASILICA

By the way, Padua is a city much sought after for religious tourism. The Basilica, dedicated to Saint Anthony, the city’s patron, is one of the most visited in Italy, receiving millions of tourists every year. Piazza del Santo, which is in front of the majestic church, houses the monument to Gattamelata by Donatello. The bronze sculptures, the Crucifix of the Basilica of the Saint, the statues and the panels of various sizes, were placed on the altar by Camillo Boito. Padua is the type of city to get to know on foot! Its streets are quiet and the main sights are close to each other.

The accommodation options that I advise with great value for money are:

2) Where to sleep in Padua? IN PRATO DELLA VALLE

Another beautiful spot in the city is the Prato della Valle. This charming region is full of squares and monuments. It is also close to the University of the city and ends up being a great accommodation option, especially for those who like a more lively nightlife. There are several bars that are open until later, especially on weekends. Despite being a very busy area, it doesn’t have an unbearable noise, so it’s good to consider staying here.

3) Where to sleep in Padua? CLOSE TO PALAZZO CAVALLI

Another place full of beauty is Palazzo Cavalli (Cavalli Palace). Its arches are impressive and the region is well served with shops, restaurants and interesting places. There are several hotels in the area and it is not so far from the center. The region is organized and well distributed in relation to restaurants, shops and monuments.


The Cathedral of St Mary of Assumption is the Duomo of the City. Beautiful, the Cathedral is a place that definitely deserves a visit! The region has great accommodation options, but the prices here may be a little higher. Even so, consider it, think that you will be in the center and can save with public transport.

If you don’t mind staying in a more remote place, but nothing absurd, you can choose to stay close to Padova Station. From there to the center, on foot, a pleasant 20-minute walk is enough. It can be a great option for those who want to move to another city and spend a little less on accommodation without losing the convenience of having ‘everything close’.


More centralized is the Museum and Astronomical Observatory region. A few minutes from the center, it also offers excellent accommodation options. It gets to be a very democratic area in the city for those who want to stay in a place close to the center, but without all the movement of the tourist mass. It is great for those who like to go to sleep a little earlier and do not make a point of experiencing the nightlife of the city.

6) Where to sleep in Padua? IN THE AREA OF PORTA PORTELLO

The area of Porta Portello is excellent for those who do not make a point of staying in the city center, but with an excellent location. A 20-minute walk from the center, the area is great and offers several options. It is also well structured with bars, restaurants and shops.

7) Where to sleep in Padua? IN VIA VENEZIA

Further away from the center, but with a great transport option, an area to consider is any region of Via Venezia. Of course, the further away from the center, the more affordable the values; Via Venezia is one of the most important in Padua and features great hotels, restaurants, bars and shops.

8) Where to sleep in Padua? IN THE VIA ANTONIO GRASSI

Via Antonio Grassi can also be considered! Like Via Venezia, it has extensive bus coverage, which can greatly facilitate getting around within the city for those who do not want to walk a lot; although walking through Padua is delicious! ; )

9) Where to sleep in Padua? IN THE VIA GATTAMELATA

Via Gattamelata can also be an option if you don’t mind walking. Even so, if you prefer, you can use the buses to get to and from the center quickly and safely.


Piazza Del Castello also offers excellent hotels and is not far from the center. A short walk of a maximum of 20 minutes takes you to the main sights in Padua. Near the Riviera Paleocapa there are also good hotels. It is not so close to the center, but there are good transport options, restaurants and bars.

How were the hotels chosen?

The hotels were chosen taking into account three main concepts: evaluation, location and daily rate. I want to make it clear that NONE of these hotels sponsored this post. The daily rates may vary from the values shodue to demand, time of year and room availability. Please always check directly when booking with Booking.com.
