The Euganean Hills are one of the most beautiful hilly areas of northern Italy, a Natural park surrounded by ancient canals, near the city of Padua, in the inland of Venice.
Collect your bike at our shop at Montegrotto terme and follow the itinerary we have created for you to discover the highlights of the Euganean Hills.
Start your experience with the visit of the Villa dei Vescovi, residence of the bishops of Padua for centuries, recently restored and opened to the public by the FAI Fondo Ambiente Italiano (similar to National Trust in GB). The Villa is a noble residence inspired by the themes of classicism, which dialogues with the external landscape thanks to the frescoes of its loggias and interiors.
After your relaxing time in the Villa, reach by bike the Praglia Abbey, the most important Benedictine monastery in the Euganean Hills. Here the monks pray, work and restore ancient books. In their shop you will find wine, honey and cosmetics.
