Abano Terme - based in one hotel

Villa, Wine and hot springs.

‘Buon giorno, ciao, salve!’ There are many ways to say ‘hello!’ on the eastern foot of the Euganean Hills. The municipality of Abano Terme will be your home for seven days. The four-star Hotel Terme Roma will be your start and finish point. There you can put your feet up after each cycle and relax in the hotel’s own spa. The region around Abano Terme sparkles with Italian flair and green plains. Especially the fertile Po Valley, which provides many of the Tuscan delicacies you can taste on the trip. Do not forget, every meal is made with ‘Amore’!

Details of the centre-based tour in Abano Terme

Narrow, winding streets, terracotta tiles, canals packed with gondolas and one magnificent villa after another. During the centre-based tour around Abano Terme Italian charm is everywhere. Particularly on day three in Chioggia where you will experience quintessential Italy! The small town isn’t called ‘Little Venice’ for nothing. Many bridges and canals remind you of the lagoon city. However Chioggia is still a hidden gem in northern Italy and is definitely worth a visit. Every day you will experience another highlight.

Tip: The Teatro Olimpoco and the Basilica are a must-visit for art lovers. A fitting end to an extraordinary tour in Abano Terma is Villa Vescovi. Enjoy a picnic on the terrace with delicious red wine, bruschetta and olives! Make the heart soar!

Highlights of the cycle tour in Abano Terme:

  • Volcanoes worth seeing: Did you know the area has almost 100 extinct volcanoes? Like little molehills they rise up from the Po valley and carve out a unique landscape. See for yourself!
  • Waterway through Padua: The streets form an ingenious network around the city of St Anthony. And best of all, it’s not just the waterway that’s worth seeing; it winds past impressive buildings and churches!

Important information about the cycle tour in Abano Terme:

Enjoyment and culture are at the fore on this cycle tour. Your base, Abano Terme, for the next seven days is elegant and incomparable!

Itinerary

The hotel staff will provide you with tour information and rental bikes.

Your first bike tour will lead you through the national park of the volcanic cones of the thermal region. You will cycle over gently rolling hills with wonderful views until you reach the pretty medieval town of Arqua Petrarca. The narrow, winding streets of the town offer many surprises to its visitors. At the end of your tour, wonderful ways will lead you back to your hotel.

In the morning, a minibus will take you to Chioggia. It is not a coincidence that your today’s starting point is nicknamed “Little Venice”! Many small bridges and canals remind its visitors of the town’s bigger sister. Before you start your bike trip, you should take some time to enjoy the flair of the Venetian lagoon. Later you will cycle mainly along the ancient river Bacchiglione, which was once used by cargo ships, the so-called “burci”.

Today, you will again cycle along the river Bacchiglione. Through fertile fields you will come to Vicenza. This is the city which helped a famous architect of the Middle Ages, Palladio, to gain worldwide fame. Many of his villas and palaces still dominate the city. The Teatro Olimpico and the Basilica are a must-see for any visitor. Beautiful squares invite you to stay and drink a cup of cappuccino. In the afternoon, you will take the bus or train back to your hotel.

Today’s route takes you along the waterways through Padua. These waterways form an ingenious network by which you can explore the city of St Anthony. It will take you to all the different attractions, such as the city wall, St Anthony’s Chruch, Cafe Petrocchi, or the Prato della Valle.

Beautiful flat roads will lead you along the hills to the Villa dei Vescovi. This villa is the prototype of a Venetian villa and its renovations have just been finished. In the Enotec, you can try wine from the Euganean Hills as well as specialties from the surrounding area. Moreover, you can enjoy a picnic on the terrace of the villa, which would for sure be the perfect way to end this wonderful trip.

Tour character

The day trips are rather easy and mainly on flat roads. Only in the Eugenia Hills there are some short climbs to be tackled. You will find yourself on quiet side roads and cycle paths. Mostly, the roads are asphalted. In cities you will sometimes come across more traffic.
