Read about it on WIKIPEDIA, about the story, and all the sights.
en .wikipedia.org/wiki/PADUA
Padua (Italian: PADOVA [ˈpaːdova] Latin: Patavium, Venetian: Padoa, Ancient German: Esten) is a city in Veneto, northern Italy.
It is the capital of the province of Padua and the economic and communications hub of the area.
Padua's population is 214,000 (as of 2011).
The city is included, with Venice (Italian Venice) and Treviso, in the Padua-Treviso-Venice Metropolitan Area

Padua stands on the Bacchiglione-Brenta River, 40 km west of Venice and 29 km southeast of Vicenza.

To the city's south west lies the Euganaean Hills, praised by Lucan and Martial, Petrarch, Ugo Foscolo, and Shelley.

It hosts the renowned University of Padua, almost 800 years old and famous, among other things, for having had Galileo Galilei among its lecturers.

The city is picturesque, with a dense network of arcaded streets opening into large communal piazze, and many bridges crossing the various branches of the Bacchiglione, which once surrounded the ancient walls like a moat.

Padua is the setting for most of the action in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, and it is also where Romeo is exiled to after he kills Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet.
