    St. Anthony and Friends

    November 4, 2014 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Took bus to Padua. Visited Church of St. Anthony and the University of Padua. It claims to be the oldest university in Europe. We enjoyed military band outside the Pedrocchi Coffee Shop in commemoration of the armistice ending World War I.
