The Venue. Padova is a pleasant historical city, home to one of the oldest and most prestigious Universities in Europe. Now little more than 400 years ago, Galileo, came here as a Professor of Mathematics to spend, in his own words, "the 18 best years of my entire age". Venice is only 15 miles away, connected by frequent buses and trains. Bologna or Verona, Florence or Milan, Rome or Turin, are conveniently reached by train in one, two or four hours, respectively.
