Padova is an active medium-size city known for its ancient Universita' di Padova (founded in 1222), one of the more prestigious in Italy). Among the places of interest in this small jewel in the north-east of Italy: Prato della Valle (the biggest circus in Europe), the Basilica of Sant' Antonio (a cathedral well worth more than a visit), works by Donatello and Giotto, the observatory used by Galileo and last but not least, Venice is a half an hour by train. The school is at walking distance from the accommodation. Activities
