Get out of town with these interesting Padua side-trips: Castello Cini Monselice (in Monselice), Casa del Petrarca (in Arqua Petrarca) and Villa Contarini (in Piazzola sul Brenta). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Santuario della Madonna di Monte Berico, explore the ancient world of Teatro Anatomico, steep yourself in history at Piazza dei Signori, and see the interesting displays at Poli Museo della Grappa.
