Not far from Padova is Cittadella – one of Italy’s best preserved medieval walls.
Washed out frescoes can still be seen decorating the gates into the citadel.
It’s duomo is majestic and the Old Town allows you to step back in time!
We found the town really deserted with the shops closed down and hardly anyone on the streets. A bit confused, we tried to figure it out. As it turns out, we were wandering the town around 1 pm (right during the main meal time of the day) and everyone was either home eating or at the restaurants. We were proven right when we decided to eat at Al Cappello on the main drag – upon entering, we saw all the people that were missing from the street inside! It was packed! I had the special Vitello Tonnato – it was good but a little rich for my tastes. Next time, I’ll know to order something simpler…
