Spa and hiking region south of Padua

The Euganean hills south of Padua are both a popular hiking area and one of the most famous spa regions in Europe. The combination of a relaxing spa stay in one of the many spa hotels with a leisurely hike through the beautiful countryside make the Euganean hills a top spa destination for holidaymakers as well as for sports enthusiasts. That’s reason enough to take at least one trip – or even an entire holiday – to the hills during a stay in Padua and its surroundings.

Euganean hills: Spa region of European importance

Abano Terme, Montegrotto Terme, Battaglia Terme and Galzignano Terne – these are the four major spa resorts in the Euganean hills. They all enjoy a good reputation in Europe and are the destination of numerous spa holidaymakers, the chronically ill and athletes looking for relaxation. They hope for adequate relief from their pain through the healing water. Even the Romans knew about the healing power of thermal waters and built extensive spa facilities, the remains of which can still be visited today. Almost all hotels in the spa towns have their own thermal springs and beautiful water parks that will make your stay in the region a real experience.

The natural beauty of the surrounding Euganean hills offers the perfect contrast to the relaxing spa treatment programme in the many spas. 3 golf courses and, above all, a vast network of hiking trails offer leisure and sports enthusiasts a perfect alternative programme to the spa. 16 trails lead over the various hilltops, providing not only a relaxing activity but a consistent and magnificent panoramic view of the region. In 1989 the entire region was declared a "Parco Regionale dei Colli Euganei" national park and the park administration, including the surrounding communities, are trying to keep the holiday paradise intact.
