The Euganean Hills, located a few kilometres from Padua, are the perfect combination of historical and natural beauty for those seeking a holiday on the trail of culture, nature, sport and wellness.
The area became a Regional Nature Reserve in 1989, and is e a true blend of landscapes modelled by nature.
The Hills are home to many municipalities with prime examples of historical and artistic heritage, such as the outstanding Arquà Petrarch, one of the prettiest medieval hamlets in Italy, where the supreme poet Francesco Petrarch chose to spend the last few years of his life. These can be conveniently reached by car or on foot, via a weave of enchanting pathways immersed in nature.
By car, on horseback, by bicycle or on foot, a trip to the Euganean Hills is a unique experience that can be concluded with a well-deserved break in one of the many spa centres in the area – in particular Abano Terme, on the northern side of the hills, one of the spa capitals of Italy- or by tasting some of the many local food and wine specialities.
