Prato della valle is a nice garden with statues all around. You will come across it while walking in Padua so there is no need to look for it. There are a couple of museums nearby but apart from that there is nothing else

Large elliptical area rather than a square. Lovely place to walk around, with a fountain and an abundance of statues of important people in the history of Padua.

Shame we came on Saturday, the park was surrounded with all the market Van's, cant take a good photo. I'm sure it would of been nice but it's quite peaceful out here.

Didn't get much of of this place. Yes, there are a lot of statues, and the square is Europe's second largest, but except for that; nothing to really remember.

We visited when a special event was going on so the place was a buzz with people and sound. The buildings facing the Prato are wonderful.
