Padua is one of the oldest Universities in the world (founded in 1222). Its botanical gardens are an UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Giotto frescos in Scrovegni Chapel are very special indeed.  The scientific program and history of Padua, coupled with modern Italian hospitality and style makes this a meeting not to be missed.
