Padua and surroundings

Discover the nicest cycle tracks and routes in Padua and its surroundings. No other means of transport gives the voyager the ideal speed to catch the extraordinary richness of the paduan territory: cities of art, hills, lakes, lagoons, medieval castles, villas, rural villages and thermal resorts.

Province of waterways
Once upon a time there was a city where gondolas, skiffs, barges and boats of various kinds skimmed silently down the inner canals, transporting persons and goods along the waterways, passing a continual procession of bridges and splendid mansions. This city with delightful canals running through it was not Venice, but Padova. Through this navigable canal network, today the city rediscovers the artistic, historic and natural treasures of the surrounding area.

From Padova to the Venetian Villas along the Brenta Riviera

Preferred by Casanova, Galileo, Byron and D'Annunzio, painted by Canaletto and Tiepolo, described by Goethe and Goldoni, the Brenta Riviera hosted the French and Russian Royal Families, Napoleon, the Hapsburg, the Savoy stayed there. Eminent architects, such as Palladio, Scamozzi, Frigimelica and Preti designed summer residences for the Venetian nobles and patricians.
