This easy itinerary connects two fascinating river ports: Battaglia Terme on the Battaglia canal and Pontemanco on the Biancolino canal. In Battaglia Terme, you can visit the Inland Navigation Museum, the only one of its kind in Italy, which preserves models of boats that sailed along inland canals and rivers. In fact, cereals, timber, fruit, wine barrels and above all the volcanic stone to pave the Piazza San Marco left from the Euganean Hills.
You will reach the village of Pontemanco with the oldest mill in the Veneto region. The Castle of San Pelagio deserves a stop for the Air Museum which traces the history of human flight, while the labyrinth in the garden is full of symbols.
Stop for the last visit of the day in Montegrotto Terme, at the Butterfly Museum, the first Butterfly House built in our country and one of the first in the world. A path immersed in the rainforests of Amazonia, Africa and Asia will involve you with its colors. Beautiful and colorful butterflies of all kinds will rest on your shoulders!
Finish your tour with a cake at Pasticceria Dalla Bona, one of the sweetest stop of this tour.
