“Day Trip to Padua from Venice”
Had a lovely guided tour with Rachel. We arrived via train from Venice, and Rachel greeted us at the terminal. We walked the city and Rachel had a running commentary on the history of the city. WE had a chance to taste some local foods, and a guided tour thru St Anthonys (recommend). Would do another tour w/out hesitation!
