  • The second oldest university in the world, celebrating its 800th birthday! A scientific event in the large aula, seeing the historical names including the pupiter of Galileo Galilei, ... all stunning!

  • The worst place for international students to be. They never communicate with their students. They don't reply emails. Once there, they never help you with anything, and you are lucky if by some miracle you found a place to stay. The housing office never replies, everyone is disorganised, people that rent apartments don't want to rent them to students or internationals (that's actually very racist in my opinion). If you can go elsewhere don't waste your time on Padova University, try getting Master degree elsewhere in Europe. Big disappointment!
  • The Most Famous place . For Visiting. I really like it. Thanks
