Padova is a beautiful city of art with plenty of historical buildings located in the central area of the Veneto plains. From the logistic point of view, it is well-connected to the rest of the world: Venice Marco Polo airport, the third biggest in Italy. Venice and Treviso airports can be reached by public buses or shuttle services and high-speed trains that run every hour from Padua to Milan (2h10m) and Rome (3h20m). Finally, Padua is 20 minutes away by train from Venice; hence it is one of the few cities in the world that can be described as truly unique.
