Cycling between ancient river ports

We are in the inland of Venice, in the southern part of the city of Padua, in the middle of the Natural Park of the Euganean Hills.

Our circular itinerary by bike connects two ancient river ports: Pontemanco on Biancolino canal and Battaglia Terme on Battaglia canal.

The bike tour follows the green ways of our territory: the romantic meanders of Vigenzone canal and the river banks of the Battaglia and Biancolino medieval canals.

We stop visit the most ancient mill in Veneto, the Abbey of Santo Stefano in Due Carrare and the waterfall in Battaglia Terme.

In the end, wine tasting at a local winery of the association Wine Road Euganean Hills.
