Scrovegnia Chapel is a must see if you are in Padua. The age and detail of the entire inside of the chapel is beyond words. We visited in the winter and the line to get in was short with a moderate 15 minute wait. We had purchased our tickets ahead of time which was recommended.

One of Italy's most famous art treasures the Scrovegni Chapel painted inside with the most amazing Giotto frescos. You have to see it to appreciate this wonderful art treasure. Must book in advance and difficult to get a place as very limited numbers allowed. Painted in 1305 and with much of the original wooden seating and fittings still as it... More

If you are in Padua, visit, and then visit again, because 15 minutes is certainly not enough. Try to visit on a sunny day. During winter months you can buy tickets easily, but in peak season preorder tickets in advance. They have many discounts, check them when buying tickets.

When you think of the age of those Giotos, you cannot be anything other than transported, amazed, excited... I don't know, it's history. Read a little bit about the history of the place and listen to the video at the beginning, then you can get in context

After two weeks of seeing the splendors of Bologna, Ferrara, Venice and Verona, I figured my 16 year old son was burnt out on art. But when he walked into Scrovegni Chapel, I heard him sigh in amazement. We both had a wonderful experience ogling these frescoes. The timed visit was a good amount of time for us, and we... More

Since moving to Verona 3 years ago I have always wanted to see the famous frescoes by Giotto in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, just an hour’s train ride away. I finally made it two weeks ago and it was well worth the wait! I’m not a huge fan of medieval religious painting, but the frescoes are definitely something else.... More

The Scrovegni Chapel is "wallpapered" with Giotto's beautifully preserved cycle of nearly 40 frescoes, the glorious chapel holds scenes depicting the lives of Jesus and Mary. We made our reservation a month in advance. We were in a bit of a rush to make it for our time slot but we ended up there early so it all worked out.... More

Wonderful and unique fresco from Giotto.Amazing 3 dimensional images and the popular fresco of hell. It is too bad that the visits are limited to 15 minutes

Visting the Scrovegni Chapel is an amazing experience. Giotto's frescoes are breathtaking. Although the 15 minutes allotted for the viewing of Giotto's spectacular biblical scenes are not nearly enough to take in everything these frescoes are so special that a detour to Padua simply to see them for a limited time is warranted. While there make sure to visit the... More

Stunning Giotto frescoes - well-organised entry due to fragile nature of the art work ... the guard can fill you in or leave you alone to look - absolutely breathtaking- shorte film while you wait fills you in on the history
