Welcome to Padova!

Just a short distance away from Venice, you’ll find Padua, a charming historical and university town rich in art, architecture and great food. As enjoy an Aperitivo in Prato della Valle, one of the biggest squares in Europe, or pass by the windows of the local food shops, you’re sure to be fascinated by Padua’s food culture. This city is home to homely dishes such as “Bigoli con sarde e capperi” – fresh pasta with sardines and capers, delicate baccalà (salted codfish) and rustic bowls of pasta and beans. Humble and comforting, these dishes are all about gathering the family around to enjoy delicious food together. There’s no better way to capture the spirit of Padua’s gastronomy than dining in a Cesarina’s home. Welcome to the family!
