The Montello

In this chapter we talk about a unique hill, about 371 meters high, located in the heart of the province of Treviso, the Montello.

It is a unique hill, located in the heart of the province of Treviso, is about 371 meters high and extends from the Piave river to Nervesa della Battaglia, from Crocetta del Montello up to Montebelluna. Its origin is linked to the process of orogenesis of the Alps. These hills, in fact, were formed and continue to grow following the movement of the continental European and Asian crust and, the Montello with its dynamics follows this phenomenon, even if its growth has been slowed down by the Piave river, which has always continued to smooth it.

On a historical level this place was fundamental for the Serenissima, given that its rich woods supplied the Venice arsenal. Today the Montello brings with it numerous traces of its past, all immersed in a traditional context, ready to be discovered. It is mainly a destination for a day off, long bike rides, food and wine experiences, outdoor picnics and mountain biking.
