Dogodek > Walking among vineyards, olive groves and Venetian villas

WALKING AMONG VINEYARDS, OLIVE GROVES AND VENETIAN VILLAS The Euganean Hills are an important lesson of the geological history and of human history.  Source of energy since the most ancient times, today they are still energy for the spirit. The itinerary wants to prove  the value of the landscape architecture project and the ancient roads.
Our road will take us to the old town of Valsanzibio, which name is inspired from the ancient monastery dedicated to San Zibio. The “valley” means marshy lowland. The real Valsanbizio , the old center of the town, is at the bottom of the bay as to "escape" to the old marshes and is announced from the church of San Lorenzo.
The itinerary runs around the Villa Barbarigo and its impressive gardens. We climb the track of the hill from where  the Villa wanted to be admired, a symbol of the wealth of the owner. We walk down a slight hill about one km and reach very rewarding viewpoints!
Downhill we will be greeted by lovely terracing with olive groves and orchards. A country path leads us back to Castle Lispida. After a trip like this, a glass of local wine is well liked. What do you think? But then it depends on what type you are ...

By bike, on foot, by boat, we will discover the landscape around that still manages to surprise even me in many ways. I work with the best travel agencies for the construction of curious itineraries and tour packages, but I promptly reply to requests from individual tourists and groups.

Dodatne informacije
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…
