Palladio is one of the most famous architecture, only to say that White House has taken inspiration by him!
Go to Vicenza to see this Theatre, but not only if you will come in Veneto you will see a region plenty of his art!
These hills in preistoric period were vulcans, see their form, now in fact town near are important for thermal resources. DOn't worry they are no more vulcans, but water here is better than a medicine! Go to Abano Terme and Montegrotto Terme and see!
This the park of the province of Padova. The highest hill is moreless600metres (Monte della Madonna). Half Monte della Madonna, there is the village Teolo, famous for his "festa dei villeggianti"="feast of tourists" in summer, they play orchestral music during the night and a lot of culture and culinary manifestation. Beyond the hill of Monte della Madonna, there is the village Rovolon, famous for its "festa della Birra"-"Feast of the Beer", come here you can drink good beers,eat local foods and see the selections of Miss Italia! The feast start in july.
In these hills there are many beautiful villages as Arquà Petrarca, where lived the famous poet Petrarca. Nice towns are also Monselice and Este, famous historically and for art. Famous is also the wine of Colli Euganei. Here there is a big golf-club(Frassanelle) and there are also many marathons.
These hills are very nice to visit, expecially in the winter, they are still wild, even if there are all villas around and historical place. Between these hills there is the Lake of Fimon with particular fishes. Around the hills there are good Trattoria and restaurants with local foods, take a taste to "Baccalà alla Vicentina", it's a fish plate, very good and original.
There are museums of sculpture of rocks and a typical tthing here is the colour of the earth,it is RED!
These hills are high between 200metres and 500metres, they are twenty minutes from Vicenza and 40 by Padova, by car.
