Near Montebelluna, Montello is a hill bordered to the north by the Piave river and
characterised by the presence of karst phenomena that have shaped its territory, with valleys and caves.

You can visit the caves at the foot of Montello, there are about 80 of different sizes.

The most famous one, the Grotta del Tavaran Grando, is near the path of the First World War bunkers. You can see other testimonies
of the Great War at the Montello Military Memorial, the Francesco Baracca Monument, the MeVe Veneto
Memorial of the Great War and the Abbey of Sant’Eustachio.

In the woods, you will be fascinated by the majesty of the oaks, birches, beeches and chestnut trees. During the autumn season, do
not miss the search and tasting of porcini and chanterelle mushrooms. With a bit of luck, you may spot squirrels, foxes, hares, weasels, beech martens, badgers, fallow deer, roe deer, barn owls,
woodcocks, honey buzzards, owls and buzzards.

You can discover the Montello forest by following numerous routes of varying difficulty on foot, on horseback, in the company of
alpacas or by mountain bike, you will also have the possibility to rent e-bikes. The ‘Stradone del bosco’, which
encloses a large part of Montello, is an easy route suitable for everyone, as the parallel ‘La Tradotta’ cycle/pedestrian path on the southern slope.
