“Simple but Serene!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

One of the simple Cathedrals that I have visited in Italy so far. There are a number of statutes around the church, the décor is simple but the atmosphere quite serene and peaceful. There is a marble altar where the pulpits are held by marbled sculptures - one had a golden face encased in the marble figure and is spectacular!. Although not as elaborate as the other Churches in Padua, it is still a beautiful place of worship.

“pacific princess cruise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

Visited some interesting destinations, especially Isreal?palestine. Egypt was taken off the itinary due to the troubles.
Food was so dissapointing. It mostly looked fantastic , but was either cold, tasteless or plain dreadful. Our cabin, a mini suite was for 3 of us. we had to keep asking for towels and glasses as it was made up for 2.
Crew were smoking continually with passengers in the smoking area. Staff were also eating in passanger areas, but not mixing with passangers.
In all a dissapointing first cruise and would consider carefully cruising again.

“Lovely building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

It was very quiet and hot Sunday afternoon at Piazza di Duomo in Padua. However, it was relaxing to see another excellent piece of Italian medieval architecture.

“Go to Parma”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

The cathedral was boring, the windows modern, the facade unfinished, and the worst contemporary scupltures adorn the altar. If you like beautiful cathedrals, go to Parma.

An impressive church in a classic style initially designed by Michelangelo. A peaceful retreat from the crowds that fill oter more popular destinations.
