Combine food, wine, sport and culture with a holiday in Valdobbiadene!
Valdobbiadene: food, wine, nature and adventure. What more could you want?
In Valdobbiadene, you can combine your love for food and wine with your passion for sport. This is the birthplace of the Prosecco and Conegliano Valdobbiadene Hills Wine Route. From every single corner, there are views stretching as far as the eye can see among the vineyards adorning the hills like pearl necklaces. However, there is more to the area than wine and nature: Valdobbiadene is a treasure trove full of little artistic gems, including religious works of art in the churches and the beautiful Villa dei Cedri, which hosts exhibitions and events.
Three reasons to visit Valdobbiadene:
- The harvest in Valdobbiadene. One reason is definitely the landscape, which has been shaped by the eternal struggle between nature and humankind. The harvest is a heroic endeavour that is still carried out by hand.
- Be inspired by the landscape and the natural environment as you follow the Prosecco Circular Route: a short trail for cyclists and pedestrians that winds its way through the vineyards of Valdobbiadene and the surrounding area. Alternatively, you could enjoy a day of adrenalin-packed adventure at the Pianezze Avventura Park. Although it is mainly designed for youngsters, it has something for people of all ages!
- As well as the Prosecco hills, during your stay in Valdobbiadene you can spend time in the mountains. For example, there are some great hiking trails on Monte Cesen. Don’t miss out on a trip to the Settolo Basso Park: a flat area where you can see beautiful water courses, resurgences and native wildlife.
Fascinating spots in Valdobbiadene: The Osteria senz’Oste
Traditional Veneto osterias are a common sight in the hills. These little family-run establishments are a great place to try simple local dishes. If you want to learn about the traditions and enjoy an authentic Conegliano Valdobbiadene experience, go for lunch or dinner in an osteria. One original option is the Osteria senz’Oste: an Osteria without a Landlord. Every morning, the owner restocks it and leaves it in the hands of the customers, who are free to serve themselves and pay whatever they think their meal was worth.
