    A tour dedicated to Padua, the city of science, because it is the city of the second oldest university in Italy, where the first woman in the world graduated and where Galileo Galilei lived and taught. The city where the first Italian internal combustion engine was patented and the city at the forefront of medicine, where the first heart transplant was performed.


    With the Padua, the City of Science tour, you will discover the scientific side of Padua.

    You will start your visit at the Anatomical Theatre of Padua, where for the first time in history anatomical dissections were performed for the study of anatomy in the city’s ancient Faculty of Medicine.

    You will then walk inside the Arcades of Palazzo Bo, the historical seat of the University of Padua, whose columns have seen the most illustrious personalities pass through as students.

    You will continue your tour of Padua, city of science, by visiting a place of your choice between the Botanical Garden or the MUSME, the Museum of Medicine.

    The Botanical Garden dates back to 1545 when it was established as a garden for the cultivation of herbs for therapeutic use and is now the oldest university botanical garden in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    The MUSME is the Museum of Medicine of Padua. Under the ancient arcades of Via San Francesco you will find this new, modern and interactive museum of the history of medicine. A project, inaugurated in 2015, that hosts and explains the ancient history of medicine from discipline to modern science in an interactive way and in an exceptional location: the ancient hospital of the city.
