E2 A – Ville Palladiane e Castelli

Distance: 78 Km
Route: Bike path paved in most sections. Secundary Roads.
Starting Point / Arrival: Abano Terme

This is the longest of our tours, thought for people with some resistance to biking and willing to explore one of the less known area of Veneto..the countryside between the Euganean Hills and Vicenza. An agricultural area, where several countryside villas were built..
Just to list some we recall Villa Montecchia (now producing great wine), villa Fogazzaro Colbacchini and its park (Montegalda), Villa Rotonda (Palladio), Villa Valmarana with the beautiful frescoes from Tiepolo, Costozza, Lumignano, Nanto, Ponte di Nanto, Ponte di Barbarano, Bastia, Frassanelle, Treponti, Praglia (with the beautiful closter).
Most of the day will be spent biking, except a quick stop to visit Villa Rotonda and/or Villa Valmarana s frescoes.
