- Setting Description:
- Since 1222, when the University was founded (the second oldest in the world after that of Bologna) Padua has always been an academic town. Half of Padua's population is made up of students, making it a young people's town, where it is easy to make friends. The city is home to several theatres and venues that offer a remarkable drama and opera schedule, as well as pop concerts to everyone’s liking. Moreover, it is ideally placed in the northeast of Italy, near Venice, Verona, mountain and sea resorts and is therefore at the heart of a dense network of communication routes.
