Hiking in the Euganean hills
The Euganean hills are a paradise for cyclists, hikers and outdoor sportsmen. The hills are all of volcanic origin and were once formed by volcanic eruptions when the various hills were formed 30 million years ago. The highest point is the Monte Venda at 601 metres so the hills should be quite manageable for most hikers. The entire hillside is crisscrossed by a wide network of hiking trails. A total of 16 designated hiking trails of various degrees of difficulty lead through the hills. Particularly attractive is the 40.6-km long distance footpath Alta Via dei Colli Euganei, which leads through the various hills and ridges and is used by experienced hikers to explore the entire Euganean hills.
