Bike Tour to Arquà Petrarca
An quite easy bike tour to discover the Euganean Hills. Riding on our bikes we’ll discover the Medieval Village of Arquà Petrarca and its traditions. One of the most ancient Villages in Italy awarded the second most beautiful of Italy. It’s a quite simple tour with great emotional impact thanks to the beauty of the places we’ll cross: the distance we’ll cover is not so much, but with many ups and downs. We’ll depart from Abano Terme. We start our bike tour pedaling first sorrounded by nature and soon we’ll see our first point of interest : Castle Catajo and the town of Battaglia Terme. We continue on the cycling lane towards Villa Emo. Arrived at Rivella, we leave the cycling lane for a quite route sorrounded by the fields of Monticelli of Monselice and we soon reach the Castle of Lispida. It was built in the end of the XIX century and which became famous because of the fact the Italian king Vittorio Emanuele III was its principal quarter is today an elegant resort with an idyllic view to the Euganean Hills. Here we will admire the wonderful and lush corner of the Euganean Hills where once was a monastery.
We’ll know we’ll be almost arrived in the town center of Arquà Petrarca when we’ll see Lake Costa at our right hand side: a UNESCO World Heritage site, where for the first time the mud for the therapies of Abano and Montegrotto was taken. We’ll reach then Arquà Petrarca, beautiful medieval village where once Francesco Petrarca lived. Here in Arquà we’ll reach the high part of the typical Medieval Village, full of little shops who sell Brodo di Giuggiole, typical liqueur of Arquà Petrarca, and other local products. Finished our little stop in Arquà Petrarca we reach the next stop: an olive oil mill, where we’ll know the production of the olive oil and we’ll discover how this plant has become autochthone thank to a special climate, it found here. We take our bike to pedal towards home.
