The student atmosphere is great in Padua, there are lots of bars and clubs, everything is close to the city centre.

The food is great, quite typically Italian: pasta and pizza.

I pay 300 euros for the residence I live in.

I think the cheapest way is to catch a flight to Treviso and then get on a coach to Padua.

I like to go for a night out at the club, Factory, and when I want to go for a drink, there's always Piazza dei Signori, the main square.

I haven't eaten out in many restaurants, but I think that the ghetto area has a good atmosphere for dining out.
