The process is a bit laboured, with the airlock system, but - my goodness - the chapel is just astonishing. (The time in the airlock is well-spent however: the video gives one a much better understanding of the context and meaning.)
You can read all about the chapel and the frescoes etc. in loads of places, but if you're in Padova and have an hour to spare, this is a must-do!!

we were suggested to arrange reservations, but you cannot do it for the day, only for tomorrow. So we just walked up there and were told we can get tickets as there are not many tourists because of the heavy rain. The chapel was very nice, but the lady giving the tour did not speak English, unfortunately.

Well restored and excellent presentation. The museum's multi-media presentation should be seen before going into chapel.

I cannot think of any other sight quite so affecting as the Giotto frescoes. This is probably the tenth time I have seen them and I still feel a sense of awe when I go through the door into the chapel. The film that one sees before the visit is a wonderful preview for what one is about to see as is the media centre in the basement of the museum. My only regret is that the fifteen minutes enforced duration of the visit leaves one wanting more time; the amount of detail is so great and Giotto's skill really cries out for more inspection than is available in such a short time.
Nonetheless, this is an unique example of his expertise and artistry and is an experience not to be missed, and probably never forgotten. How he achieved so much in two years is quite amazing.
This is, without doubt, one of the most outstanding displays of the art of frescoes in the world.
