This tour is organized by me and a group of like-minded friends travellers from different parts of the world. We got together leaded by the same passion: travelling and discovering new cultures. Each of us discovered Padua in a particular way and in different circumstances: as an exchange student, as a worker or/and traveller who wanted to explore northern Italy and fell in love with the breathtaking region of Veneto and the city of Padua. Now we want to offer alternative and responsible travel tours based on our personal travelling experiences. We work constantly with the local community in order to help them to expose their most interesting activities. We are not professional guides, but we are local foreigners who know very well our city.
You will visit different spaces of local organizations and creative communities where the artists are working daily as well as requalified spaces which made an impact on the district.
WHAT ARE YOU PAYING WHEN YOU BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE: 60% to support the local initiatives which you will visit during the experience. 15% for the typical local Aperitivo. 25% to TerrArcella Experience project to help us to continue showing the hidden Padua to the world.
