The Regional Forestry Service has created the Jubilee Trail with the support of the Colli Euganei Park Authority and the Municipality of Teolo. This itinerary offers many evocative historical and natural insights; it begins at the parking lot of the Abbey of Praglia and goes up Monte delle Are through a black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia), chestnut (Castanea sativa), hop-hornbeam (Ostrya carpinifolia) and oak wood. It then reaches an old tarmac road, to be followed for about 3-400 metres before turning left on a forest road. Here, different types of tree grow, and the vegetation turns decidedly xerophile (living in dry climate): downy oaks (Quercus pubescens) and manna ash (Fraxinus ornus). After leaving the wood, the trail crosses an area of olives and vineyards, and passes by a place known as Casa La Busa dell'Oro. This stretch ends by a roadside shrine; then the trail turns left on an old dirt road, where recent works for rainwater regulation are visible. A steep descent leads to the flat area facing the Abbey; here, the itinerary follows rural roads that local farmers use to work in their corn fields and vineyards. The trail runs around the whole Abbey and leads back to the parking lot.
