Description

Arquà Petrarca lies at the foot of the two hills Piccolo and Ventolone and belongs to the association of the most beautiful places in Italy "I borghi più belli d'Italia". Here is the house of one of the most important Italian poets, who also gave his name to the village: Francesco Petrarca. He spent the last four years of his life in Arquà Petrarca and this is where he is buried.

On the excursion you first visit the house of Francesco Petrarca, which today houses a museum. From the windows you can enjoy a wonderful view, which already then served as inspiration for poets and poets. This house is a real pearl of the Euganean Hills, in the middle of a village where time has stood still. On the upper floor of the house you can admire frescoes from the 15th century with which the interior of the house was decorated by order of one of the subsequent owners. The frescoes are based on the poet's most important works. All the inhabitants who lived in this house after Petrarch tried to change it as little as possible and keep it as the poet had left it.

Arquà Petrarca has also been the origin of an important culinary tradition for a long time. Therefore you will visit an oil mill after the house. The owner of the mill, is a multiple award-winning olive oil producer and will tell you all about the production processes of olive oil. At the end of the visit to the mill you will have the opportunity to taste the oils in a tasting

The tour then takes you to a young producer who produces typical regional delicacies such as the liqueur Brodo di Giuggiole, typical of Arquà Petrarca, or jams. Here you will also take part in a tasting of the various specialities
