Hotels in Padua
The province of Padua is located in the northern Italian region of Veneto. Most of the area is flat, though there are the Euganei Hills, small hills of volcanic origin, which today constitute the first regional park of the region of Veneto. In the area of the Euganei Hills, there are also the Euganei Spas, or thermal establishments, actually comprised of a number of towns noted for their thermal waters. One of these towns, the most famous, is Abano Terme; attractions here include both a number of spas and a rich historical center that contains a Cathedral that dates to the year 900 AD. The other towns of the thermal area include Battaglia Terme, Galzignano Terme, Montegrotto Terme, and Teolo; the latter is famous for its bike paths. Take a trip to the capital city of the province, also called Padua, to see its world famous double layered defensive walls, dating to the 1300's and the 1500's. If your travels through Italy happen to land you in the region of Veneto for a weekend, Padua might be a good place to visit.
