Travel between meandering waterways and undulating landscapes to Padua and Este. The historic heart of Padua is a hub for the Slow Food Presidia, taste local dishes like the flat pasta Tirache Trevigiane or the rustic Risotto with Rovinassi. You shouldn’t miss the Botanical Gardens which are the oldest in the world. Este is a picturesque town, encircled by historic stone walls and watchtowers, pause for a Venetian aperitif in the town square. Lovers of the countryside will be overwhelmed by the varied beauty of the Euganean Hills which rise up to 600 metres, wonderful for a day hiking.
