First we will calmly reach Cittadella, with its beautiful walls surrounding it, famous for the highest walkway in Europe. It will be possible to visit them by walking at 15 meters above sea level. We continue pedaling in the direction of the Brenta River Park, a protected natural area along which cycling will be a pleasure. The river will lead us to Piazzola sul Brenta, a small town in the province of Padua famous for the luxurious Palladian villa that dominates its center and its square: Villa Contarini. Then we find the Treviso-Ostiglia cycle path a few steps away which will take us in the direction of Camposampiero, another very important center in the Padua area because it is the seat of the Antonian Sanctuaries. In Camposampiero we also find the cycle path which, going up north, will take us back to Castelfranco for the end of the first day. 60 km / 37 miles ↗  70 mt  ↘ 70  mt
