Olive oil & wine bike tour

This guided tour gives you the opportunity to discover the local products of the area of the Natural Park of Colli Euganei.
The Euganean hills are a group of volcanic hills that rise 50 km from Venice and 20 km from Padua. Venetian noblemen built their residences during the Renaissance in this area and the cereals, the wine, the fruits and especially the quarried stone from these hills where shipped to the rich markets of Venice.
An archipelago of volcanic islands, hills separated by fresh valleys, suitable sun exposure and the mix of sedimentary and volcanic rocks are the peculiarities of the Euganean Hills that give to the wine liveliness, finesse and taste, and high quality to the olive oil.
The tastings will take place right in the middle of perfectly shaped hills, medieval villages, enchanted valleys, lost in a sea of vineyards and olive trees.
