Padua (Veneto) - Aerial view of inner city with Prato della Valle square and St.Anthony Basilica.
The ancient city of Patavium was situated between the Brenta river and the Euganean Hills, in a position overlooking the plain between Venice and the Po.
Padua was an important city back in Roman times (it was founded on an island in the middle of the Bacchiglione river) and went on to have a very rich history, well documented by the historic buildings which have survived here. Its centre is still as it was in the Middle Ages, having replaced the Roman one after a fire in 1174, and grown up around the Piazza delle Erbe, the University, founded in 1222, and the Palazzo della Ragione, one of its most distinctive features being extensive colonnades. To this day the focus of an intense religious life, Padua retains some exceptional examples of Christian architecture, such as the Duomo (cathedral) and the Basilica of San Antonio – the saint himself spent the last years of his life here. Today, even though it has been the subject of considerable industrial expansion, Padua remains connected to its traditional image as a city of study, medicine and art.

Also ich denke mal, viel haben wir da nicht falsch gemacht mit unserer Entscheidung.
