Head to this spot in the historic center of the city not only to admire the building and art, but to visit one of the best food markets in Italy. The Palazzo della Ragione house several arcades of food markets, flanked by the two outdoor markets -- Piazza delle Erbe and Pazza dei Frutti -- offering the finest fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses you'll ever see. A visit will make you want to rent an apartment in Padova just to shop here and cook your meals from what you buy at the market.

This building represents the heart of the town because of the little food shops that are downstairs, but it has also an enormous open space upstairs (where people were judged in the past). In this space a very interesting exhibition has been organized, Venetkens, about ancient inhabitants of region Veneto. I could see the way of life of these populations, observing a lot of objects coming from different towns and villages near Padova

Beautifull palace built on XIII century. The top floor is occupied by the largest room roof of the world (around 2200 square meters) called "Salone" (Saeon in dialet).
Under the Fair, along two parallel tunnels, are placed numerous features and grocery shops with delicious food and, in the adjacent squares (Piazza delle Erbe e Pazza dei Frutti) there arecstalls of fruits, vegetables and clothes
