Abano Terme 7-day cycling 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 will be your start and finish point. There you can put your feet up after each bike ride 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 tour:

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:

  • 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:

Enjoyment and culture are at the fore on this cycle tour. Your base, Abano Terme, for the next seven days is elegant and incomparable! Every day you cycle between 35 and 55 kilometres on mainly flat roads. The exception is at the Euganean Hills, which need a bit of effort. The ‘gelato’ and ‘vino’ will taste all the better afterwards!
