Venetian Hills Walk

venecia

This Venetian Hills Walk is based in the wonderfully unspoilt Euganean hills, tucked in a quiet corner below the beautiful mediaeval city of Padua, west across the plain from Venice. A perfect ambassador for what Italy has on offer, the untouched green walking country: rolling hills, shady forests, vineyards and olive groves symbolise the Italian countryside.

Amazing array of colourful wild flowers: heather, poppies, wild orchids and Mediterranean maquis cover the Italian floor with the essence of everything one would associate Italy with being and the beautiful smell of the natural world it encompasses. Splendours of Venice, Vicenza, Padua and Este – jewel in the Venetian crown all await you on this holiday.

All of the hotels you stay in will be full of character; lovely friendly people on this superb value-for-money holiday.

The peacefulness of the region holds an eternal appeal as a haven for locals to escape the punishing summer heat of Venice. Venetian nobles built sumptuous villas here – you’ll pass by many on the way, and even stay in one. More recently, the hills have become a National Park so its beauty will never be diminished and clearly way-marked footpaths guide you through with ease.
