Venetian Herbarium Museum of Monte Ceva at Battaglia Terme
Venetian Herbarium Museum of Monte Ceva at Battaglia Terme. Located within the Euganean Hills, is comprised of approximately 50 hectares of forest with an ample expanse of natural reserve territory on Monte Ceva. Walking paths wind throughout the property, each of a differing distance and difficulty. Illustrated signage also dots these pathways to indicate various botanical species. The biodiversity of Monte Ceva has been recognized at the highest levels of the European scientific community. This herbarium has been the commissioned subject of study and categorization by the Geobotanical Institute of Padova University. On the first floor of that same building there is ample space for laboratory study and experiments. Guided walks can be conducted along the hilly paths to spot and identify the plentiful wildlife and geological characteristics of the area. If you’re lucky, you may even see one of the wild deer that live free on the property. These walks can also be wonderful opportunity to just enjoy the panoramic views for the peaks of the Euganean Hills.
