The B&B “Chez Vivì” is located in the medieval village of Arquà Petrarca which takes its name from the great poet Francesco Petrarca who, in the 14th century, spent the last years of his life here and in the square next to the Church there is his Tombstone.
The house of the Poet, preserved intact, can still be visited
Arquà Petrarca , the “Pearl of the Euganean Hills”, lies within the green area of the “Natural Colli Euganei Park”, between Palladian Villas and fortified cities, and it is beautiful for its medieval architecture while boasting a cool and ventilated summer climate.
We are close to Abano Terme, the most important European Spa Area, 15 km south of Padua. In an hour’s drive you find Venice and Garda Lake, Chioggia and the Po Delta, Asiago, Ravenna, Ferrara, Mantua and Bologna, as Vicenza, Verona, and Treviso and all deserve your visit!
