Bright, authentic and beautiful. We enjoyed visiting inside and outside praising the architecture and modesty at the same time.

It brought Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew to life to see the real setting. I would like to return for a few days.

Unfortunately it was not allowed to take pictures inside the Basilica. But this Basilica, dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of lost things, is overwhelmingly impressive inside. To the left is the monument that is the grave of St. Anthony. A walkway...More

A romanesque church with relics of St Anthony. The alterpiece, by Donatello in the early 1400s, is stunning.

The church is famous for having the relic of Saint Anthony, his tongue. No pictures allowed at the relic area and the line is long. A pilgrim Mecca, but much more manageable vs the Vatican, Duomo di Milan, Florence or Venice.

Yes . There is a large shop in the Basilica itself (you can’t get back into the Basilica from the shop so do the shop at the end ) and you can also sign up to the St Anthony’s Messenger in the shop. The exit from the shop... More
