Car: Recommended

Longare which is about 4km from the house is a quiet village at the foot of the Berici Hills (400 meters high) and is 13km from Vicenza city centre. The local area is perfect for hiking, mountain biking & rock climbing as well as for enjoying the local cuisine & wine tasting. The area is very quiet and rural but at the same time very central for visiting all the important touristic and cultural centres such as Venice, Verona, Padova, Lake Garda and the Dolomites.
