Padua and the Euganean Spas are perfect for bikers.
Trails of varying difficulty run through the Hills, combining your sporting experience with local hospitality tailor made for mountain biking.
The Thermae Sport and Bike Hotels of Padua and provincial area provide GPS for six routes, bicycle parking, specially prepared sports menus and thermal pools with health benefits that lead to improved sports performance.
The geological genesis of the Euganean Hills comes from the leakage of large amounts of magma at the bottom of an ancient sea. It's easy to find evidence of this while riding the bike trails, like sedimentary rocks in close contact with magma rocks, and the contrast of rolling hills against the steep slopes of volcanic spires.
The Hills are just a few kilometres from Padua, where Expobici takes place in the autumn, an international event that has its test day in Galzignano Terme.
Starting from the E2 cycle path in Montegrotto Terme, the track winds toward Este, walled city of the historic castle, then continues toward Monte Fasolo and the beautiful surrounding landscape. Moreover, the proximity to Padua, allows you to integrate the route by exploring the cultural heritage and local food and wine.
