Let’s visit Padua and Cittadella next weekend!
In Cittadella, many events are dedicated to delightful food and to explore the city. You can rent a boat and sail along the moat or enjoy a walking tour along the medieval walls. Moreover, on the 24th and 25th September the Veneto’s cheese contest takes place in Villa Contarini. During that weekend you can enjoy the medieval festival “Voci dell’Evo di Mezzo”. In Padua’s town centre, two exhibitions are going to close: “I Tintoretto ritrovati” and “Il San Lorenzo di Donatello”. Lasly, if you are up to some vintage shopping, do not miss the Sunday fleamarket in Piazzola sul Brenta, where you can admire the beautiful villa, seat of the market.
Lucky you! The local food festivals offer you great opportunities to taste baccalà in Sandrigo at the Festa del Bacalà alla Vicentina and pumpkin based dishes at the Festa della Zucca in Ghizzole di Montegaldella.Lastly, there is nothing better than a healthy biking or walking tour after huge meals!
