For the ever-faithful pilgrims who would like to visit St. Anthony's Basilica, it is worth the time and effort to travel to Padua to do so. This is one of the most grand Basilica's in the world and a testament to the adoration of St. Anthony. You will be amazed at the number of people brought to tears at the tomb of this Saint.

This is always full, the second most visited church in Italy I think. Crowds come to pay visit to St Anthony, of course, but we have visited Easter Mass here and it was standing room only, not just tourist/pilgrims. A great atmphrere, a church alive with prayers of the faithful (and forgetful!).
Don't forget to see his tongue in the side chapel, which is still intact after all these hundreds of years!

As tourists, my partner and I were unaware of the dress code of this particular church. Though shorts are apparently not permitted, it was a hot and humid day and other (male) tourists were wearing them inside the church. A security guard asked us to leave, stating my shorts in particular were "not respectful" my partner pointed out all the men wearing shorts, but the guy didn't budge. I would have happily worn a wrap around my waist, however was never offered one (like pretty much very other religious tourist point with a dress code), just merely and rudely asked to leave.

I've been to many churches and mosques around the world and have never been treated so much like I should be so ashamed of my female body. We were so put off we didn't bother to look at anything else to the grounds. So much for 'respect'.

An impressive Basilica, you can't miss it.
An example of faith and art, in a lovely setting.
The small Oratorio on the right of the square is also worth a visit- tourists tend to overlook it but it is an example of the hidden beauties of Italy.

For me the journey started in Venice at St.Lucia station. The train ticket is about 7-8 Euros return on reaching Padua which is about 40 minutes by Normal train or 15-20 minutes if you manage to get a express train. you have to go under the subway and take let and you will reach the bus station you can take a bus or a tram to the Basilica. The Basilica is incredible with devotees of St. Anthony thronging the Basilica any time of the day.
