This walking holiday is based in the wonderfully unspoilt Euganean Hills, tucked in a quiet corner below the beautiful mediaeval city of Padua, west across the plain from Venice. Once volcanic islands, these hills have a striking conical appearance; they are cloaked in an astonishing variety of plant life including holm oak, maple, orchids, heather and poppies and have been recognised as a National Park. The lower slopes give way to colourful meadows and immaculately groomed vineyards so it's little wonder the region produces such a fine variety of wines!

Starting in the tiny hamlet of Cortela, nestled amongst vines, you walk through unspoilt verdant countryside and shaded forest to Este, with its perfectly preserved mediaeval walls and Lord Byron's former villa. You discover the jumbled cobbled streets of mediaeval Arqua Petrarca, where the famous C14 Italian poet, Petrarch, made his home, before continuing through fertile fruit orchards to Galzignano. A convenient stone's throw from the Italian Baroque gardens of Valsanzibio, there's time to explore its magnificent maze before a series of outstandingviews leads you to panoramically perched Teolo.

The hotels we've selected for you are full of character and are all family run, with warm welcomes throughout. They range from Maurizio's pretty, pastel-coloured hotel overlooking the remains of Este's mediaeval castle and Gabriella and Alessandro's rustic yet cosy agriturismo, to the exquisite Liberty Villa Lussana with its stunning position overlooking the dramatic Euganean Hills.

Day-by-day itinerary



Walking information

This is of easy/medium difficulty. It mainly follows forest paths and country lanes, with just a few brief steep sections. Walking boots are recommended.


Day 1 - Arrive in Cortela

Arrive at Gabriella and Alessandro's farmhouse in time for dinner in their cosy dining room. (Staying at ll Feido, Half board)

Day 2 - Cortela to Este 18km/11.5mi/6hr

Head across bright poppy fields, then through mountain ash and oak forests to the hamlet of Valnogaredo. The convent of Beatrice d'Este crowns the next hill, Monte Gemola. Enjoy glorious views over Este as you descend through woodlands, past Byron's former villa, into the old town. Our hotel lies opposite the castle. (Staying at Hotel Beatrice d'Este, Half board)

Day 3 - At Este

Everyone loves Este. It has a very Venetian feel, criss-crossed by a narrow canal and with an imposing golden clocktower and immaculately preserved C14 mediaeval walls. There's a public pool (June-Sept), or it's a short bus ride to the walled city of Montagnana, famous for its hams. (Staying at Hotel Beatrice d'Este, Half board)

Day 4 - Este to Galzignano 13km/8mi/4hr or 16km/10mi/4.5hr

We give you a lift to Arqua Petrarca, still as it was when Petrarch came here in 1370. Visit his wellpreserved house, then walk up geranium-decked streets and past sumptuous C15 villas into the serene hills - not a soul in sight except for the odd wine grower in the fields. You descend through cherry and plum orchards to the fabulous Villa Barbarigo at Valsanzibio, whose C17 Italian gardens are the best in the region. (Staying at Belvedere Resort, Half Board)

Day 5 - At Galzignano

Catch the local bus (35 mins excl Sundays) to Padua, the region's second art city. View the Cappella degli Scrovegni (Giotto frescoes), admire Donatello's Gattamelata statue or savour a cappuccino in the largest square in Italy! You may wish to treat yourself to a spa/massage at Montegrotto - great for aching muscles! (Staying at Belvedere Resort, Half Board)

Day 6 - Galzignano to Teolo 13km/8mi/4hr

Ascending through olive groves you reach Monte Rua hermitage, a popular lunch stop. A woodland path leads towards Rocca Pendice, an imposing volcanic stone massif. You skirt round it to enjoy breathtaking views across the chain of hills as you descend to Teolo, the only 'alpine' village here. Our hotel, an exquisite Liberty Villa, lies above the square. (Staying at Villa Lussana, Half board)

Day 7 - At Teolo

Supposedly the birthplace of the Roman historian Livy, Teolo is alive with history, and many of the buildings from its Serenissima heyday remain. There are lovely walks available including a circular one up Monte della Madonna with its panoramic views (walking notes provided). For a longer day out, take the bus/train to Venice and see St Mark's Square, the Doges' Palace and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. (Staying at Villa Lussana, Half board)

Day 8 - Teolo to Cortela 11km/7mi/3.5hr or 16km/10mi/5hr

Walking through rows of lush green vines you reach the highest point of the holiday, on the flanks of Monte Venda (601m). The plain is mapped out before you, with views towards the Berici Hills near Vicenza. Then it's on through oak and chestnut forests, and down through vineyards and olive groves, back to Gabriella and Alessandro's farmhouse for a spot of well-earned wine tasting!ned wine tasting! (Staying at ll Feudo, Half Board)

Day 9 - Leave Cortela

Ms Rodgers
18/10/2016

This was a great way to explore the Euganean Hills , we travelled in late September and the weather was perfect for walking. The holiday is a great combination of walking and rest days and our rep ,Sarah, had plenty of good advice on what to see and do.


Mis Horkan
15/09/2016

Beautiful verdant area to walk in. Fantastic views. Lots of options for rest days.


Mrs Anderson
02/08/2016

We had a very good relaxed holiday, with Sarah giving alternative choices and lifts on days that were too hot to walk the whole distance

Sarah is an exceptionally good rep

Thankyou


Mr Duggleby
10/06/2016

Another excellent self-guided walking holiday from Headwater. Everything was up to the very high standards we expect from them. The entire 8-day holiday was a delight including the visits we chose (Padova, Monselice) on our days off. We chose to walk the suggested options for our last day off. The weather was poor but we had a fabulous 'extra' day of walking.

This area of the Vento is so beautiful and the walking around the Euganean Hills was terrific. Sarah our lovely rep was superb. Thank you Headwater.


Mrs Butterworth
03/06/2016

The walks are strenuus enough that we felt a glow of achievement on finishing each one, but not so difficult that we sruggled as occasional hikers. The mix of agriculture and woodland walking surrounded by birdsong is wonderful.

Adding an extra 3 nights in Venice staying at the Hotel Kette made the whole holiday one to remember for many years.


Ms Poole
31/05/2016

It was great to have such a complete break and while we didn't it the support available from the rep it was reassuring to know that assistance was only a call away. We particularly enjoyed moving on from town to town and having the rest day in between walkis created a great deal of variety as we got to see other towns. We particularly liked Villa Lussana and the food was really good there - it was also the first walk we didn't get lost on so there was a great sense of achievement in arriving there!


Mrs Jones
26/10/2015

Can't speak too highly of Sarah - Headwater is fortunate to have someone with such high standards, thoughtfulness and warm personality.. She was very attentive and concerned about a couple on the cycling holiday,one of whom had sustained an eye injury while cycling.

Villa Lusanna was particularly good in terms of welcome, food and friendliness.

Some years ago we did the walking in the Loire valley holiday. The standard of food, accomodation and route notes were much better in the Venetian Hills holiday. .


Mrs Moseley
19/10/2015

Lovely area, very peaceful with enjoyable walking. Great to visit Padua on our rest day. Added on a day and night in Venice at the end of the holiday which would highly recommend.


Ms Melliship
12/10/2015

Our holiday was the perfect combination of supported and independent: you do have to be prepared to sort out a lot of things for yourself, which we really like. Yet, Sarah was always available if we needed help. The itinerary was thoughtful and had great variety every day. We got a lot of satisfaction from completing all the suggested walks. Our rest days were extremely busy days as there is lots to do in the region - we enjoyed the chance to have these days to explore and do something different.


Mrs Dimond
25/09/2015

A wonderful opportunity to have a 'safe adventure!'. Euganian Hills are a beautiful, unspoilt area to explore, the vineyards and olive groves were a delight, and the views amazing.


Ms Hopkins
03/07/2015

It was a brilliant holiday - everything was well organised and went according to plan. The scenery was superb, the walks were more challenging than expected because of the extremely hot weather (38F one day!) but loads of shade and wonderful views helped us through. Our local rep was brilliant and there was more than enough information from Headwater for us to find interesting things to do on our rest days. All the accommodation was good but Villa Lussana was a holiday highlight. Thoroughly memorable. Thank you!


Mr Murray
03/07/2015

A really relaxing and enjoyable holiday giving us the opportunity to visit some lovely areas of Italy.



The Headwater representative was well informed and really helpful allowing us to enjoy our holiday to the full.




Mrs Aitken
01/07/2015

We walked through a beautiful quiet unknown part of Italy meeting friendly people in small hotels and rural towns and felt welcomed everywhere.


Mrs Main
02/06/2015

This holiday took us to a lovely area that we'd never have known about if we'd not come across it through the Headwater website.We wondered how we'd cope with our first mobile holiday, but it all went so smoothly that we had no problems; rather, we found it interesting to stay in 6 very different hotels in 9 nights! Having read other comments and seen the weather forecast, we went prepared for all conditions. Yes, it rained a bit, but it was warm rain without wind - nothing like the Scottish var... read moreiety and we were lent a giant Italian umbrella in Este for our visit to the market and the rest of this lovely wee town. Because of the Giro d'Italia our first [non walking] day was a bit disrupted but Sarah was able to drop us off in Téolo to see the race [and it's vast entourage] go by. As my husband is a very keen cyclist who normally watches this on TV at home, this was a real treat and much appreciated. We also appreciated that one of her first acts on collecting us from Vicenza station was to offer us each a bottle of chilled water.


Mr Raffay
30/05/2015

The holiday exceeded our expectations. Our rep, Sarah, was extremely helpful and friendly. We enjoyed discovering this beautiful part of Italy.


Pro Beevers
28/09/2014

Good walking, good accommodation , food and wine. Interesting cities and towns to visit.


Mr Boyd
22/09/2014

Although not far from the bustling city of Padova, the Euganean hills seem to be an undiscovered gem and we saw far more butterflies than walkers! We enjoyed all of the walks and there were plenty easily accessible attractive places to visit on our rest days. Our holiday was enhanced by a night in Venice at the start and at the finish.


Mrs Potthurst
22/09/2014

The welcome & help we encountered from local people was phenomenal.


Mr Page
06/08/2014

An excellent walking trip with the added extra of a few days in the superb city of Venice. Excellent support from headwater Rep and good to be 'off the beaten track' in a lesser known and unspoilt area of Italy.


Mr Humphreys
30/07/2014

We topped and tailed the walking with two nights in Verona and two nights in Venice which gave a nice contrast. The walking was enjoyable with a variety of terrain and the route descriptors good. We were lucky with the weather but it can be unpredictable so you need waterproofs and/or a brolly just in case. Good insect repellent is worth the investment. The area is unspoilt and there seem to be very few tourists. Accommodation was good though air-con is either poor or doesn't exist so it is hot ... read moreat night. On our rest days were able to visit Montagnana and Padua which were both very enjoyable. However, if you can try to organise the holiday so that you are walking on a Sunday you will avoid being marooned on a rest day - no buses run on Sundays! We found the locals to be friendly though most had as much English as we had Italian - very little! The rep - Sarah - was charming and very helpful! Italian beer is good but expensive - local wine is good and good value! Overall a great experience. We enjoyed the holiday and would recommend it.


Mrs Todd
21/07/2014

Sarah is an excellent asset to Headwater, knowledgeable and friendly.She was thorough in going through the briefing notes and was on hand if we needed. The walking notes were accurate, at times it felt like a higher grade walk than billed, but that just added to the achievement after each one. Views spectacular, hotels and food excellent. Rest day in Padua to see Giotto Frescoes and then the Anatomy Theatre at the University was fantastic. Sarah gave us opening times and suggestions, so that was... read more really time saving and useful. This was our first HW holiday, and we are already looking where our next one could be.

Headwater response:
Dear Mrs Todd, Thank you for your lovely comments regarding our rep Sarah, we have passed your feedback on to her and she was delighted. We were also pleased to see that you had an enjoyable 1st holiday with Headwater it sounds like you took in all of the sights and sounds that this region has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you on your next holiday with us in the future. Yours sincerely, Headwater Customer Service team


Mrs Wass
04/07/2014

Excellent representative. Belvedere hotel a gem. Our overall perception is coloured by the fact that we hit a heatwave of mid-thirties degrees in the shade which, given the steepness of the hills, was exhausting. Excellent suggestions for the days off from walking.


Mr Joyce
15/06/2014

Update the walk notes, they are very out of date and unusually for Headwater quite irritating

Headwater response:
Dear Mr Joyce, Thank you for your feedback. I have passed on your comments to the programme manger for the region,she is currently in the process of updating the route notes, unfortunately, there have been a number of amendments needed due to the unusually poor weather experienced in this area over the winter. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope that despite this issue, you had an enjoyable holiday overall. Yours sincerely, Headwater Customer Service team


Mrs Elliott
06/06/2014

The Venetian Hills holiday was a truly enjoyble experience. This is a little-known, unspoiled part of the country and ideal for walking. The welcome and service at all the hotels was second to none.


Mr Ballantyne
26/05/2014

il feudo is rather basic and rustic .Steep stairs no lift.Shower unit in bathroom fell off wall.,not a lot of pressure. Welcome was good though.

Villa Lussana all confection ---no lift Headwater customers on second floor. shower unit cracked and water only just warm enough.

For walkers some paths i found quite tough walking over tumbling rocks in the hills which could easily have been dangerous so you had to be vigilant. Having done a fair few walking hols i found this one quite to... read moreugh . but may be age had something to do with it . i would have graded it a little higher i think.

But enjoyable all the same .Well its Italy ---whats not to like!!!!!!!

Well organised and enjoyable holiday


Mr Howell
14/09/2013

Excellent holiday! The office staff were very helpful and patient and helped us choose the right holiday. We greatly enjoyed the walks, they were varied and interesting, with lots to see on the way. All the hotels were lovely and welcoming with great Italian food. On our days off we did a bit of 'culture'

we visited Padua and Monselice. At the end of our holiday we tagged on a few days in Venice, as it was virtually on the way back anyway and that was great as well. We just would l... read moreike to add our sincere thanks to Sarah our rep. She gave us lots of interesting information about the region, and seemed to know all the walks in great detail because she gave us very good advice about finding our way. It gave us a good start to our holiday!

We are looking forward to our next holiday with Headwater.


Mr Beale
02/09/2013

Enjoyable walking in beautiful scenery combined with very comfortable hotels.


Mrs Norris
03/06/2013

A great introduction to this little known area of Italy. The itinerary meant that we could easily combine walking with sight-seeing.


Mr Arnatt
29/05/2013

We were most impressed with the welcome and hospitality at all the hotels, as well as the great service offered by Sarah, our rep. However, we were surprised at the challenging terrain of the walking, especially on the last day (Teolo to Il Feudo) and our overall enjoyment was spoiled by having to cope with shinning up rocks, then traversing knee-deep mud, then a slide down a rock strewn path. It was not the enjoyable countryside walking with views we had envisaged.


Mr Sidey
06/10/2012

We really enjoyed this holiday as most walks were interesting and the overall accommodation was good. Special mention must be made of Sarah who gave us detailed briefings on the walks at the beginning and useful information on the accommodations we would be using. It took a little while to understand the guide notes but once we realised the style and approach of the writer then we were fine. Good walking country with mix of woods and rock scrambles with good views. We met few walkers on the trails but the villages where we stopped were lively and pleasant.


Mrs Oglesby
07/07/2012

we really enjoyed our holiday. The area was beautiful and the walks well planned and descriptions/ directions accurate. We were met with friendliness everywhere we went. The local advice from Sarah was really helpful planning our rest days. I thought she was really good at her job, helpful, knowledgable and friendly- she genuinely seemed to want us to help us have a great holiday.


Mrs Reynolds

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Very enjoyable - walks were well-planned with very thorough and accurate guides
