Perhaps Cafe Pedrocchi is the essence of Padua; a cohabitation of
privilege and revolution. Other than that, the inevitable
consequences of a university city and the odd mega-cultural
churches, cathedral and Giotto's frescos...a thoroughly pleasant
place to wander about and enjoy the scenery, food, wine, graffiti
and window shopping... if that is your thing.
I confess I succumbed to the food and wine
part and, as a result, there are rather less images of cultural
stuff than I would have planned on a good day. Again, another
excuse to go back and take some serious pictures...or repeat the not
altogether unpleasant day in the sun, watching the world go by with
a nice bottle of chilled white wine to keep me company.
