Caterina, our guide, was simply excellent. She is very knowledgeable, has very good English, and showed us around the most important places in Padova, giving detailed explanations, and replying to all our curiosities. Padova is incredibly historic and interesting. Thank you, Caterina, and well-done getyourguide.
