DAY 2 – BIKE TOUR EUGANEAN HILLS  (65km, 80m elevation gain, mainly bike path)

The Euganean Hills bike path develops like a circular itinerary along the canals that embrace the Euganean Hills Natural Park. This full-day ride will surprise you with its rich cultural heritage with prestigious Venetian villas, unchanged walled cities and castles. You will soon reach the walled city of Monselice and then continue along the Bisatto canal. After the river village of Marendole, Este, another walled city with the imposing Carrarese Castle and elegant squares, will conquer your heart. You will then proceed towards the western part of the Hills, characterized by extensive countryside, silence and uncontaminated nature and you will feel the satisfaction of finding yourself far away from pollution. The acute forms of the hills, a sign of their volcanic origin, but also the hillsides that host olive groves and vineyards, will keep you company.
After lunch and wine tasting in local cellar, you will cycle towards the northern part of the Hills, up to the Praglia Abbey, where you will stop for a guided tour of the most important Benedictine monastery of the Euganean Hills. You will now be on your way back when you pass by the elegant Villa Draghi and the wonderful Castello del Catajo.

DAY 3 – BIKE TOUR BRENTA RIVIERA  (50km, flat terrain, bike path and secondary roads)

With this Bike Tour along the Brenta Riviera you will cycle along the canal that in ancient times used to link the city of Padua with the lagoon of Venice. After a quick visit of Padua, we set off in the direction of Venice, crossing the university district of Portello, with its monumental Porta Ognissanti, and then proceeding along the Piovego canal first, and then the Brenta canal. These medieval waterways guaranteed communication between Padua and Venice for many centuries, through the famous Brenta Riviera.

Continuing your bike tour along the Brenta Riviera, you will be able to capture the beauty of Venetian architecture not only in the numerous noble buildings but also in the rustic residences, which, despite having lost their original productive functionality, still retain the courtly details of the Venetian palaces.

By bicycle it is possible to travel the same routes and admire the same landscapes that amazed travelers in past centuries: Villa Pisani in Stra, the beautiful center of Dolo and Villa Foscari known as “la Malcontenta”, the pinnacle of Palladian architecture.

Time to say goodbye to Italy!
