I wish I had known...
1) Take a language course before you go. 2) Be very sure your home university is happy with the content of the courses you are going to do at your host university.

Personal recommendation
It's a good university in a great city. You may find a little office bureacracy from time to time but keep at people in a firendly way and they will normally be happy to help you.

Final comments
Try to balance the social aspects with the academic aspects. This might be difficult as the Erasmus association in Padova was so good at organizing events but it will definitely be better when you balance things out. Also don't forget to take a few day trips or weekend trips to see the different cities, the trains are normally very good (get a carte verde) and it's a beautiful country.

Personal comments
My advice is to take a course in the langiage of the the country that you are going to before you go. Don't just try an teach yourself, take a proper course, it will be worth it. I went out speaking about 3 words of Italian with the promise by my home university that it would be ok as I would get lessons. I did get lessons, which I enjoyed, and my language improved so I could handle myself in most situations by the end of my time there but I definitely lost out academically because language was a bit of a barrier, especially at the start and especially with technical descriptions used in my courses.
