Euganean Hills

The Euganean Hills Regional Park extends over a hilly area of ​​volcanic origin of about 18,000 hectares.

 Centuries old oaks and chestnut forests alternate with Mediterranean scrub and wide hillside terraces with vineyards and orchards.

Ancient villages, hermitages and the elegant architecture of sumptuous Venetian villas recount centuries of history, art and tradition.

It is possible to visit medieval towns such as Arquà Petrarca, close to the heart of medieval poet Francesco Petrarch, who chose to spend his last years there, and also visited by Lord Byron and Ugo Foscolo.

It is also possible to visit the walled towns of Monselice, Este and Montagnana, or places of worship such as Carceri Abbey and the Benedictine Praglia Abbey.

The magnificence of bourgeois life in the past lives on in the villas that over the centuries have succeeded in keeping their charm, such as Villa dei Vescovi in ​​Torreglia, Villa Barbarigo in Valsanzibio or Catajo Castle in Battaglia Terme. Or why not lose yourself in the small villages set on the hills, where time seems to have stopped at the simple country life of decades ago: the ancient fief of Baone and Villa Beatrice d'Este, Cinto Euganeo and the industrial archaeological complex of Cava Bomba, now home to an important fossil museum.

For lovers of good food, a refreshing break at one of the numerous agriturismos, wine bars or taverns in the Euganean Hills is a must.

The area boasts thirteen DOC wines, all of which are all strictly controlled by the Vini Colli Euganei Consortium.
