History, art, life and landscape. Nothing like a cycling tour allows you to discover the treasures of the Berici Hills in an active and fun way. With this package we propose a route accessible to all, which rejoices in the area and in one of its most important treasures: the olive groves.
On the first day you departure from Nanto to complete the Path of Olives. It is a short but fascinating walk in a typical coastal area with traditionally cultivated olive groves. After a short flat stretch along Via Cà Bassa, which allows you to admire two old stone washhouses, the Fountain of Sòto and the Washhouse of Priare, it winds through the hills before crossing the wet brushwood, and then picturesque terraced vineyards and olive groves, with a beautiful view towards the plain and the Euganean Hills.
Olive and truffle are in fact the local products-subjects of a local traditional festival called "Ulivo e tartufo" of the Berici Hills, which is held in July: excellent opportunity to visit the sites.
The cycling tour includes stops to admire the views and concludes with dinner offering local De.Co. products: tartufo scorzone (seasonal), oil and Sirah Wine.
On the second day you will visit the Experimantal Olive Grove of Nanto where the attendees can participate in practical demonstrations of pruning and in practical courses on the techniques of cultivation of this precious fruit.
