We will discover together the area of the Euganean Hills that rise in the southern part of Padua and called also “the hills of Venice”.
The tour is a true slow experience that gives you the opportunity to meet wine producers and local farmers. It is a true image of the area you visit and gives a sensation of freedom and relax.
This bike tour is an opportunity to discover the wine we produce in the Euganean Hills and the authentical Italian hospitality. We will reach cellars by bike and discover how the volcanic origin of these hills influences the soils and the wine production. We will meet Nicola and Francesca that continue the work of their grandfathers with passion and deep respect for the vineyards and this land.
Meeting point to our shop in Montegrotto terme, bikes delivery and departure for our bike tour.
