We will start first at a time from the Monumental Garden of Valsanzibio, an immense symbolic garden of the seventeenth century, called a few years ago the Most Beautiful Park in Italy, completely surrounded by the verdant landscape and the soft curves of the Euganean Hills. Here water features, tree-lined avenues, fountains, the intricate labyrinth and the statues come together harmoniously in an allegorical path of "Salvification" along which the visitor, traveling through various stages, from the Portal of Diana to the Statue of Winged Time up to the fountain of the Dolphins, is guided in the symbolic liberation from sins. Later we will move to visit Villa dei Vescovi in Luvigliano di Torreglia: a precious gem set in the Euganean Hills, an ancient holiday residence of the Paduan high prelates that dates back to the first half of the sixteenth century.

Known as one of the most beautiful gardens in Italy, the Giardino di Valsanzibio is now famous all over the world. Il Giardino is located in Galzignano Terme, a small town in the heart of the Euganean Hills. This area, from the beginning of the fourteenth century, was preferred by the Venetian nobility as the perfect location for their wonderful Venetian Villas: it was a symbol of economic power and, at the same time, an oasis of peace and tranquility.
