Padua.

A trip to Padua today as it is market day. The market was in the central plaza which must be very beautiful when seen without the stalls. It contains a loop of the river which is bordered by statues.

The town itself is typically Italian.

I took my shopping list prepared to buy every colour gloves available but sadly this market offered not one pair of gloves. Shoes, bags and clothing of every description but no gloves!

Nuns are human too!

And teaching the young is only one of a priest’s responsibilities!

Padua boasts a vast and very impressive 15th century basilica famous for its frescos and magnificent statuary. Of course it receives many visitors so it needs a decent sized car park.

You couldn’t make it up could you?

    sounds great. Wish I could have been in your luggage, knowing how I feel about Italy – any part of the country!
