The loft "San Francesco" is located in the heart of the historic center of Padua. On the 3rd floor (with elevator) of a XIII cent. building which back in the day was a shelter for single mothers, a short walk from the Basilica of St. Anthony, the famous squares (Piazza delle Erbe & Piazza della frutta) and the Palazzo della Ragione. The apartment is finely restored, keeping the old features, with beamed ceilings, furnished with valuable antique furniture and equipped with all comforts such as bed linen and towels, air conditioning, heating, flat screen TV, stereo, DVD player, iPod, Wi-Fi, washing machine, dishwasher, and small appliances such as a kettle and a Nespresso machine, as well as complete dinnerware.
You will have a warm welcome with tea, coffee, biscuits for breakfast and other "cuddles" to make you feel at home!
Included in the price, one cleaning session per week, of three hours.
The ideal accommodation for professors, researchers, PhDs and all other professionals visiting the University of Padova.
The attic is located well inside the historical centre of Padua, therefore in a pedestrian-only zone.
The best way to get to the Loft "San Francesco":
- If you arrive by car, exit the motorway at Padova Est, follow towards the centre. Take via Venezia, arrive at Piazzale Stanga, continue along via Ariosto, then turn right into via Gattamelata. After the hospitals, turn right on via Facciolati, reach for Piazzale Pontecorvo and then take Via San Francesco to the apartment.
Our guests can park at the Garage Patavium car park, an 8-minute walk from the attic, at these pre-arranged rates:
--> 20€ for 24 hours
--> 10€ for nighttime only
--> 15€ for daytime only
- By train, from the station on foot in 15-20 minutes or until the tram stop on the coast of the Roman bridges, then a 5 minute walk to Piazza Antenori and continuing into Via San Francesco to the apartment.
Advice: the best way to enjoy Padua is by walking under the arcades or cycling!
