CicloviaThe Colli Euganei are a group of hillsides located southwest of Padua. They are low hills of ancient volcanic origin that reach up to 600 m high. Quite isolated in the middle of the Venetian plain, thay give exciting landscapes.

In 2012, thanks to the collaboration of various municipalities in the area, it was possible to develop a cycling tour that allows you to visit the area: it is the Ring of Euganean Hills.
Also identified by the sign E2 (the Venetian Hiking Network), this cycle track is about 60 km long and easy to navigate.

Along the way there are numerous facilities that offer special services for cyclists so you can experience the Park of Colli Euganei in calm even in more days.
Some sections of the track are like a real asphalted cycle track, while others are simple paths. In some cases it’s also necessary to pedal on the road.

The best bicycles to tackle the Ring of Euganean Hills are mountain bikes and tourist bikes. Pedaling on the trail in the spring is very enjoyable also for the presence of numerous watercourses and artificial canals. Avoid summer due to the strong humidity of the area.

The bike path crosses the towns of Albano Terme, Montegrotto, Battaglia, Monselice, Este, Bastia, Treponti and many others. You always ride in the middle of nature by passing historical villas and castles.
