Event > Cycling among old river ports and castles

CYCLING AMONG OLD RIVER PORTS AND CASTLES The past as an example of environmental sustainability: old reclamation works, traditional nautical skills, agricultural skills, riverside ports. Very expressive microcosms of the themes of the Expo 2015. I invite you to discover the Euganean hills’ magic profile from the saddle of the bike, along the cycle path that surrounds the entire scenic area.
The sights are simply spectacular! For example the view of the Lozzo hill, a champion of the euganean forms.
A photographer’s dream, the view is never the same and soon we will reach Valbona castle, a medieval castle. The path takes us to the old centre of Vo’ Euganeo, an old riverside port in the very middle of a large network of canals that connected the rich Venetian market with all the towns in the northeastern part of Italy.
We’ll take a break to admire Villa Contarini – Venier built in the Sixteenth century by a Venetian noble family that had an important role in the territorialisation of this area.
we bike mostly on riverbanks and gravel roads, on asphalt on secondary roads protected from regular traffic.
We could continue for many kilometers to enjoy the wonders of this territory, but I suggest to take a break and taste some local gastronomic specialties with a glass of wine at the Farm house Molina di Broggiato. What do you think? But it depends on what type of person you are…

Further information
I'm Carmen, a tourist guide (Italian, English, Romanian languages) and an enthusiastic geographer. I’m active in some cultural and hiking associations in the Euganean Hills where I do the guide so I know both the hills that the plain below.
 
I have a degree in Geography achieved in Padua and the topics that interest me more are relevant to the geographical aspects of the area. I’ll tell you about the land reclamation, with the hydraulic artifacts as testimonies, as the Montaigne bridge-canal located on the bike path of the Hills, on the edge of Valli Selvatiche. I’m sure that the best way to understand the water landscape is rowing like natives on the board of a typical row boat or cycling on riverbanks.
 
We will go slowly in order to discover every single little story that the territory tells us. Among all the Euganean hills, my favorite is Mount Fasolo and from its dorsal looking toward the south, we’ll see a landscape that is a great lesson of geology and human history.
 
Here where I live the paths indulge among water canals, country landscapes, medieval castles and Venetian villas.
I suggest you to take a break and taste the local gastronomic specialties and a glass of wine. But it depends on what type you are…
