Excursions on the Euganean Hills
Within the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills there are 20 different hiking trails with various degrees of difficulty. They are well-marked and equipped. All of them offer spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding Venetian plain. The Euganean hills area, whose perimeter has an elliptical shape, perfectly lends itself to hiking and walking among crops and woods, through villages and walled cities of great historical and architectural interest such as Monselice, Este and Montagnana. Trekking, hiking, Nordic Walking or simply walking are the most powerful way to discover the Park. It is an ideal context to physically and spiritually regenerate yourself while admiring superb views and breathtaking sunsets. In every season, but especially in autumn and spring, you will enjoy the most astonishing landscapes in an unspoiled nature. Route no. 1 Alta Via dei Colli Euganei runs just outsideTerre Bianche. This trail is also part of the route of the Traversata del Colli Euganei, the 42 km trial running Euganean Hills Marathon across bold climbs and steep descents suitable only for the most expert runners.
Also, from Terre Bianche walking along route no. 1 Alta Via dei Colli Euganei you can reach in about 30 minutes Luvigliano and the beautiful Villa dei Vescovi, which belongs to FAI (Fondo per l’Ambiente Italiano – Italian Heritage Foundation), while in one hour walk you can arrive in Teolo, the home of the Roman historian Tito Livio.
Moreover, there are walking tours along the Euganean Hills Wine Road to discover 40 local wineries. Many events are organized to taste the aroma and the bouquet of the wines locally produced by the vineyards of the territory. The tastings are often accompanied by the famous Prosciutto di Montagnana and the Schisotto, a typical bread prepared without yeast and consumed in the Euganean Hills and lower Padua’s area.
