Why Sara Smania chose Padua

This charming PadovaResidence apartment is located in a historic building in via Daniele Manin 16, in the heart of Padua just close the Cathedral, Piazza delle Erbe Piazza della Frutta, Piazza dei Signori and the Old University.

The whole house belongs to our family since the end of 18th century. We all were born in Padua and lived in this wonderful house, than moved to a bigger place. We grew up in this area and we think is one of the best areas to stay in Padua, a privileged spot surrounded with Art, History, Culture and close to everything you need during your holiday. The city centre is a wide pedestrian oasis, where streets and pictoresque squares are lined with historical monuments, street cafes and historical coffee- houses (Caffè Pedrocchi), music bars, bookshops, high-fashion boutiques, shops, galleries, restaurants and the wonderful daily markets.

What makes this apartment unique

Live in the heart of the old Padua is a wonderful experience.

The city centre of Padua boasts a wealth of fine medieval renaissance and modern architecture, here a fascinating mix of historic and new creates a unique atmosphere. This apartment is perfect for a couple on a romantic holiday, as it offers warmth, privacy and the comfort of the most central position you could wish for! You would be more than welcome!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful city. After 8 weeks in Italy it has been our favourite. The pace, the cleanliness, the art, its people. Thank you for your kind attention and all the information which we put to good use. It was great to have so much space and so tastefully decorated. When we arrive home late August we will write our enthusiastic recommendation.

A true “home away from home!”

Beautiful roomy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 nights in Padua were amazing! The kitchen was perfect for cooking our daily lunches consisting of meats and produce from the open air market nearby. A bit noisy at night, but we didn't mind--we were in Padua!

Best location in Padua!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment Isabella served as our home while we enjoyed the many attractions that Padova has to offer. The unit is spacious, clean and fully equipped, with everything in good working order.

We cannot imagine an apartment being better located. A baker and also a small well stocked grocery store are just across the street. The apartment is adjacent to the two principle markets, offering fruit, vegetables, meat, seafood and miscellaneous items, as well as the grand Palazzo della Ragione, built in 1218.

Isabella herself got us off to a good start by giving us a helpful overview of what to see and do and where we might find the best food and drink. You could spend all your time right there and have a great stay, but there is more.

It is a walk of some 5 or 6 minutes to the tram line, which puts you near every major attraction, which space prevents me from cataloging here, information readily available elsewhere. In summary, we wholeheartedly recommend this apartment and would stay here again personally.

A beautuiful place to stay in Padua

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are retired and travel in Europe for 2 months in the summer. This past summer we choose Padua. In addition to the sights in Padua, easy access to Venice, Verona, Lake Como, Slovenia..

Padua is a very comfortable city. The people are friendly and in 2 months we did not run out of great restaurants.

We initially knew very little about northern Italy, but were soon to learn and become very comfortable.

What made this trip most memorable was the hospitality of Isabella and Francisco. Both went out of their way to assist when needed and showed us the warm hospitality of northern Italy. The accomodations were perfect. A fully appointed kitchen. The market(s) are a block away, located on a quiet residential street, safe, fitting our needs for our 2 months stay. Additionally, Isabella has a cooking class at her home where we were welcomed as if family. Highly recommended.

Perfect location in Padova

  • 5 of 5

We loved Isabella's apartment. My daughter had studied in Padova earlier in the summer, so we made it our base when I met her in August. The apartment's location is excellent--half a block from a piazza with a daily farmers' market. It is in the heart of historic Padova, surrounded by sites, sidewalk cafes, lovely shops and colonnaded streets. The apartment is spacious, beautifully decorated, with a well-appointed kitchen if you want to cook, using the fresh ingredients found close by. Isabella is very warm and welcoming. Padova is also a great base for day trips to Venice, Bologna, Verona, and more. We were happy to return to "our" apartment and lovely Padova at the end of a day away.

The house is right in the historical centre close to Piazza delle Erbe, Where there is the daily market of fruit and vegetable. Every day during your stay, you will have the possibility to enjoy the great local life in the Piazza. At the same time, there are plenty of local bars, coffe shop, restourans and 'Pasticcerie'. Thus you could enjoy the delightful italian coffes and meals relaxing in a typical paduan atmosphere! We are sure you will feel like a 'Padovano' just for a while!

Again, the house is incredibly close, less than 2 minutes walk to the main monuments and an easy tram ride or nice walk to the train station.
