Amphitheatre and Gardens in Padova
The historic Giardini dell’Arena is a lovely and well-manicured park located in the centre of Padua, next to the Capella degli Scrovegni. Walking paths, flowers, trees, bushes, artistically placed and pruned, provide for a lovely walk or a moment of quiet reflection. At one end is the Scrovegni Chapel, wit the greatest repository of Giotto frescoes in the world; on the other, the remains of the original city walls, including the ruins of a Roman amphitheater dates back to Augustan times (30 B.C. – 14 A.D.).
The Gardens can be accessed both from the square with the Garibaldi monument, at the intersection of Corso Garibaldi and via Giotto, and from via Porciglia.
