What you'll do

We'll met at the train station Terme Euganee Abano Montegrotto in Montegrotto Terme for the minivan pick up to reach the top of Euganean Hills. With this hiking tour, I will take you to discover the nature of the Euganean Hills, an area of around 19,000 square meters of hills of volcanic origin that rise from the Padovan-Venetian plain a few km south of Venice.
The geological origin of the Euganean soils and the shape of the terrain are the main reasons for the big diversity of the Euganean flora. I will accompany you to discover the Monte Venda, the highest hill of the Euganean Hills. During our walk, we’ll have the opportunity to visit the ruins of the Monastery of the Benedictines monks. Of the medieval building, dedicated to the St. John the Baptist, remain today just ruins, part of the Monastery, of the clocktower and of the crypt. The legends tell that is was founded in 1197 by Adamo da Torreglia who decided to spend the rest of his life here as a hermit and was after followed by the Benedictine monks of Santa Giustina of Padua. I will’ tell you how that Monte Venda has even been an important NATO base. If you will be here in autumn or winter, I'll take you to see the famous thermal inversion: I will take you to a place where you will be above the clouds and see only the tops of the hills stand out like so many islands in a sea of clouds.

I live near the Euganean hills and spend most of my time immersed in the green nature of this splendid regional park. I know the stories, legends and secrets of this area and I like to tell them because they are things that are not found in books but are part of local life and customs.
