WHAT TO VISIT ON THE EUGANEAN HILLS
The Euganean Hills are a group of hills of volcanic origin rising from the plain south-west of Padua. Since 1989 they are part of the Venetian Regional Park and offer the ideal habitat to an amazing number of animal and plant species. Several walking and cycling trails run through the hills, the most famous one being the Transeuganea.


The brand new cycle route E2 has only been recently created and will let you stroll through the hills on a 70-km long tour.
The Euganean Hill area boasts the production of outstanding wine and olive oil. If you have an interest in wine and food tours, please do not hesitate to ask the hotel staff for more information and advice on the best wine cooperatives and oil mills in the area.
