Bike & Path

Enchanted forests, vineyards and olive groves, picturesque villages, small roads and quiet paths invite you to stroll, hike and cycle. Those who enjoy exercise will find a dense network of over 30 signposted hiking trails stretching more than 250 km (about 150 mls) in total, as well as 100 peaks to climb inside the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills. Who prefers to hop on two wheels will be rewarded with countless small and large cycle paths that wind around and over the Euganean Hills all the way to Venice, meeting the most diverse requirements. Whether by mountain bike, gravel bike or road bike. Also climate-friendly: discovering the area on horseback.

Culinary delights

Wine & Dine

For lovers of authentic products and exquisite wines, the region is a culinary paradise. Around 100 winegrowers are active in the Euganean Hills and offer wine tastings. The spectrum ranges from light sparkling wines to white wines, rosé, red wines or late harvest to dessert wines and the cultivation and processing also vary between traditional, organic or biodynamic. Not forgetting the “Olive Oil Route”, which is in no way inferior to the “Wine Route”. In addition to the liquid delicacies, the culinary aspect is not neglected. Simple trattorias, osterias and pizzerias are just as much a part of the offer as upscale and also star-studded gourmet cuisine. Just 10 km away, e.g., Massimiliano Alajmo, one of Italy’s best chefs, conjures up fantastic dishes. Last but not least, the local sagras (church festivals) offer a special opportunity to discover regional specialties and local life.

Sport & Play


If you want to slow down and take a relaxed swing, you can play a round on five golf courses or head to the driving range. All the courses are beautifully situated and cater to different levels of difficulty: Driving Range Colli Euganei in Abano Terme, Golf Club Terme di Galzignano, Golf Club della Montecchia, Golf Club Frassanelle a Rovolon and Golf Club Padova a Valsanzibio.

Even the Romans knew about the healing powers of the Euganean thermal baths. Whether Abano Terme, Montegrotto, Galzignano or Battaglia Terme – if you want to top off your relaxation with a wellness day, you can visit one of the many hotels as a day guest. Cool water and dolce vita then await just 40 minutes away in the Venice lagoon. The only question here is whether it’s the sea or the Serenissima, including the Biennale, Burano, Guggenheim and Canal Grande flair, as well as many insider tips in and around the wonderful city of Venice, which we are happy to reveal to you …
