The Euganean Hills are one of the most beautiful hilly areas in the north of Italy, completely surrounded by a cycling path, next to the city of Padua, on the island of Venice.
We will do the same road that the great Italian poet, Francesco Petrarca, followed from Padua to his house in Arquà at the end of the Fourteenth century. We will stop to visit Arquà Petrarca, one of the best preserved medieval villages and considered the second most lovely village in Italy.
In Arquà you can choose to visit the memorial house and we will taste the famous Brodo di giuggiole, a delicious local liquor.
