The Prosecco hills, located between Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, represent a start point for suggestive itineraries. The land itself, between the Dolomites and the valley, becomes a fascinating scenery with strong, distinguishing features, most af all, the vineyards.
The Prosecco Road definitely represent one of the most interesting itineraries. With its total 120 kilometres, penetrating and scrambling along the hills from Conegliano to Valdobbiadene, the enological artery drives the visitor through uninterrupted vineyards and villages where people can breathe the taste of the art of wine, giving glimpse and landscapes of authentic beauty and charm, together with medieval statements, hermitages, churches, signs of the rural, civil and religious history. Not to forgive the chance to meet the cuisine and the local products in all the traditional restaurants scattered along the wine road.
But the road especially offers the opportunity to choose the itinerary closer to one's own sensitivity and predilection.
Following the Prosecco Road you may even explore the area keeping fit. In fact, there are many routes for cyclists, with different lenght and difficulty, for both road and mountain bike. They vary from the comfortable network of cycling lane crossing the valley and surrounding the hills, to the more demanding cyclist tours on the foothills and on the “Montello's” ridge.
For off-road cyclists instead, there is a wealth of choices, for example the trail of the citadels between Asolo and Cornuda, the ring of Pianezze-Monte Cesen, the Piave riverbed and many more.
Moreover, many shelters and trails make Valdobbiadene a perfect start point for excursions and strolls between hills and passes. Also in this case, the levels of difficulty change from the quite easy strolls to the trekking and nordic walking routes.
Very interesting is also the discover of the 1st World War (1915-1918), struggled on those hills and mountains, as well as on the shores of the Piave river, fundamental point for the battle evolution.
To see the Military Memorial in Nervesa della Battaglia and, more in general, the itineraries around Montello, on the traces of the Great War.
