A stop at the Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padova (or Padua), in Padova, is a must of you are driving anywhere near Venice or in the Veneto region. If you're not planning to be there for awhile, you can still take a tour.
Since photos aren't permitted anywhere inside the Basilica or its enclosed outdoor courtyards, a few exterior shots will have to do. We'd left the lovely agriturismo Le Vele in Casselle di Altivole with a stop in Castelfranco that morning then made our way into the city of Padova.
Saint Anthony is the patron saint of lost things and missing persons.
