This classical tour could not be missed in our cycling offer: this is one of the most complete tour which permits to, thanks to its panoramic bike paths which touches many of the beauties of the Euganean Hills. This tour takes you all along the ”Euganean Hills Ring” a circular cycling lane which traverses all the perimeter of the Euganean Hills.
This tour is quite long, but not difficult: all the cycling lane is plane and you can, if you want rent an e-bike, which simplifies you the tour, or rent a MTB or a normal cycling bike: we will be the most time on cycling lanes, just sometimes we’ll leave them for untarmacked road. You can start this bike tour from many points of the ”Euganean Hills Ring” : we start from Abano Terme and proceed in clockwise direction.
First, we’ll pass by Villa Draghi, a beautiful Villa in Montegrotto and after some kilometres we’ll pass by the Castle of Catajo, the palace of Colli Euganei with its 350 rooms. Proceeding along the Canal Battaglia, ancient padouan fluvial way which takes us to the next villa: Villa Emo where we’ll admire its beautiful garden. Once we are arrived in Monselice we’ll walk near by the Castle of Monselice, one of the rare Castles which is still furnished. Here we’ll have our first stop: we’ll do the guided tour of the Medieval Castle and we’ll have a little walk along the most beautiful Panoramic Walk in Veneto: Via del Santuario with its Seven Churches, which symbolize the seven Churches of Rome. From the top of this Panoramic Walk we’ll appreciate the views of Monselice from the height.
We take our bikes and ride in direction Este where we’ll have our packed lunch in the gardens of the Medieval Castle of Este.
Once we take back our bikes we ride along the streets immersed in the lush fields near by the Colli Euganei: we ride until Lozzo Atestino where we’ll see the Castle of Valbona which will show us a beautiful testimony of the medieval history of our territory. It was fortress of san important padouan family, whose story is strongly related to the Castles seen before in Este and in Monselice.
