Extensive ranges of hills join the mountains to the plain. Especially important are those in the province of Verona, at the foot of the Monti Lessini and those along the bank of Lake Garda (Garda, Lazise, Bardolino, etc.), both famous for their production of prized wines. There are other hilly zones in the provinces of Vicenza and Treviso along these lie the roads "of white wine" and "red wine" which reveal how well-established winemaking is in this area. Then there are also a number of important and characteristic hill formations in the region: the Berician Hills (near Vicenza), the Euganean Hills (near Padua, also famous for the thermal baths of vulcanic origin), the Asolan Hills and the Montello (in the province of Treviso). They all have exceptional climatic and environmental qualities, famous and appreciated since ancient times.
