Padova is a city in the North of Italy, it's an important road spot as there are A4 leading from Trieste to Torino, and A13 leading from Bologna to Padova. Also some important national roads such as SS16 Adriatica, SS47 Valsugana and SS11 Padana Superiore pass through or have origin in Padova.

If you're lucky you can find Tiziano in this city.

Hitchhiking out

South, towards Bologna

North, towards Bassano del Grappa, Trento, Dolomites

West, towards Vicenza, Verona, Milano, Torino

One spot where you can head to the West is the petrol station on A4 highway called "Limenella Nord". It's located about 2kms west of Padova Ovest exit along the highway. The petrol station is easy reachable through countryside roads especially by car, or walking near the highway from Padova Ovest heading west, or, coming from Padova city centre, taking number 11 bus and getting off in Ponterotto, then you need to walk eastwards till the petrol station along the north side of the highway.

East, towards Venezia, Trieste, Slovenia, Austria

The same petrol station mentioned above can be used to get rides going East. The station is huge with a lot of traffic on both sides, including a lot of trucks. There is a long enclosed bridge spanning the motorway with a restaurant inside, connecting the eastbound and westbound sides of the station.
