Overall rating: 6
General opinion:  Padua can be described as a city located in Veneto, i.e. northern part of Italy. Moreover, it’s also capital of ‘province of Padua’; along with being a communications and economic hub.
 
Padua happens to stand on ‘Bacchiglione River’; at the distance of 40 Km on the western side of Venice. Moreover, it lies at the distance of 29 Km on the south-eastern side of Vicenza. ‘Brenta River’, that used to run through city once upon a time, still; happens to touch northern districts. Agricultural setting on its part is ‘Pianura Veneta’, i.e. ... More ‘Venetian Plain’.
Padua is very much picturesque; with dense network consisting of ‘arcaded streets’ which open in to huge communal ‘piazze’, and several bridges that happen to cross numerous branches of ‘Bacchiglione’. This had surrounded accident walls, just like ‘moat’.
As of the year 2007, population of Padua was 210301. Out of this population, 47.1%25 comprised of males.
