Decided to sleep in and take a more leisurely day in Padova. Had a great breakfast at the hotel including scrambled eggs. We had talked about going to Venice but decided we needed a break from the massive crowds and heat. We started out with a visit to St. Anthony's Basilica which was just steps away from our hotel.

After many days of being completely run off our feet we were happy to have a easy day. So it was late breakfast, then off to find the hop on hop off tour bus. This took a little to find as Padova is a very quiet town so it only runs every couple of hours we took a stroll thru the basilica time for lunch then our tour began. We saw many and varied sights.
