Art cities
and places

The best art cities and the best sites to see in the vicinity of the Euganean Hills and our farmhouse. We are at the heart of the Euganean Hills and at the centre of a region rich in splendid artistic and cultural cities.

All activities


Many Veneto villas line our land, such as Villa dei Vescovi in Torreglia; a perfect example of structural harmony between the building and the surrounding environment. There are also castles: Castello del Catajo in Battaglia Terme, built between 1570 and 1573, at the foot of Montenuovo; Castello di Monselice, which in time evolved from a defensive tower to a Veneto villa; Castello di San Martino della Vaneza in Cervarese Santa Croce, and Castello di San Pelagio in Due Carrare, of which only the battlement tower remains intact.


Museums and monasteries deserve a section to themselves, as they’re rich in history and culture and are dotted throughout our region. For example the Monastero di San Daniele (Saint Daniel’s monastery) in Abano Terme, built by the Montagnone family between 1076 and 1078. Further exploration of the area surrounding the province of Padova leads us to the Abbazia di Praglia (the Abbey of Praglia) and the Museo Nazionale Atestino (Atestino National Museum).



Mediaeval cultural capital and home to one of the oldest universities in the world. Padova boasts masterpieces such as the cycle of frescoes that Giotto painted for the Cappella degli Scrovegni (Scrovegni chapel) in the fourteenth century. It’s the destination of many pilgrims who come from all over the world to visit the Basilica of Saint Anthony, where the body of the Saint is preserved.


Venice, the city built on water, founded on riches gained from maritime commerce with the East. Byzantine influences seen in the use of mosaics and gold are to date, visible proof of the “Serenissima”’s (the Venetian Republic’s) importance over the centuries.


Famous for its Arena, which makes Verona a renowned centre for culture and performance. Among its suburbs you can admire a splendid merging of art, architecture and urban planning from the ancient time of Roman splendour to today.


Among the oldest of the Veneto cities: historians say Vicenza was founded by the Euganeans and subsequently annexed to Roman rule. Also known as “the city of Palladio”, who dotted the city and its surroundings with his work.


Situated in an area rich in water resources. The old town is crossed by the Botteniga, the city’s most famous river, making Treviso a unique and enchanting city. The symbol of Treviso’s cuisine is red radicchio, with its unmistakable delicate yet bitter taste.


abano terme

Thanks to the thermo-mineral springs, Abano Terme has always been a popular tourist destination, so much so that until 1945 it was known as Abano Baths.

Arquà Petrarca

Considered one of the Euganean Hills’ most typical hamlets, Arquà Petrarca has very ancient origins: its fame is indisputably linked to that of the famous poet Francesco Petrarca, who spent the last years of his life there.


Characterised by a predominantly hilly territory, with numerous farming and wine-making businesses. Today Baone is a serene village with churches and villas to visit nearby.

Battaglia Terme

The smallest town in the province of Padova, but also its most original, due to the old town which overlooks its canals, making Battaglia Terme resemble a riverside village.

Cervarese Santa Croce

Including the hamlets of Montemerlo, Fossona and Cervarese. With ancient origins, Cervarese Santa Croce lies between woods and waterways, which have given life to many natural beauties to be discovered.

Cinto Euganeo

Located in the heart of the Euganean Hills, with Roman origins in its name. Cinto Euganeo Includes the hamlets of Fontanafredda, Cinto, Valnogaredo and Faedo.


One of the oldest cities of the Euganean Hills: Este dates back three thousand years. It is an important walled city, land of pottery, and cradle of the ancient Veneto civilisation.

Galzignano Terme

Located between two peaks, Monte Rua and Monte Gallo, Galzignano Terme is renowned for its spa facilities and the opportunities it holds for open-air sport and excursions.

Lozzo Atestino

A borderland, Lozzo Atestino is characterised by its low-lying location crossed by waterways and by the Monte Lozzo peak.


An important military centre located to the South-East of the Euganean Hills, Monselice boasts an old town which lays between the slopes of two hills, those of Rocca and Monte Ricco. Thanks to its particularly fortunate geographical placement, today it’s a landmark for the territory of Padova and an important railway and road hub.

Montegrotto Terme

Located at the foot of the Euganean Hills and part of the biggest spa resort in Europe. Montegrotto Terme boasts the first Italian museum of live butterflies, home to numerous and rare specimens.


Including the hamlets of Bastia and Carbonara, Rovolon stretches between the plain and the slopes of Monte della Madonna.


Located to the west of the city of Padova, Teolo’s territory covers a wide area of villages both in the plain and on the hillsides. Admired since antiquity for its healing atmosphere, Teolo is still a popular destination for tourists.


Divided into two zones, one low-lying and the other hilly, Torreglia lies in the north-eastern quadrant of the Euganean Hills.

Vò Euganeo

The town of Vò is located at the border with the province of Vicenza and for this reason is known as the “Eastern Gate” of the Euganean Hills. Vò is renowned for its production of wine and trachyte.

Another very interesting route is the circular cycling route around the Euganean Hills, which takes you from the Bassanello-Padova area to Vò Vecchio, or to Bastia di Rovolon, or even to Montegrotto. It passes through archaeologically fascinating places, such as the Catajo Castle, Villa Capodilista, Este’s Duomo, the Valbona Castle and many more.

If it’s your first time exploring the Euganean Hills on mountain bikes however, the first route we would recommend is quite challenging, but very rewarding: a complete tour of the great Teolo Valley, travelling the ridges and the backbone of the most North-Eastern area of the Euganean Hills.

See route


For lovers of city bikes however, we would recommend a route that takes you from Este to Montagnana, which runs partially along the bank of the Frassine river, in a landscape far from industrial warehouses or busy roads, and rich in remarkable nature and landscape.

See route


Do you want to visit the southern areas of Padova? If so, this is the route for you: explore the countryside of Conselvano, the vast stretch of plain enclosed by the Euganean Hills and marked by the Canale Battaglia and the Bacchiglione-Roncajette river.
