A scenic 30 minute ride thru the Berici hills south of Vicenza will lead you to Noventa Vicentina (a good place if you are shopping  around for clothing) and Este. Once known as Ateste, the town was absorbed by Rome in 200 BC. After the Adige River changed course in the 6th century, the town was completely abandoned. It is now primarily an agricultural center with some manufacturing.

Surrounded by family run Agriturismos in the nearby Berici hills, Este is a quiet town with Roman ruins and a medieval castle (founded in 1056, rebuilt in 1339) where you'll find historical reenactments and concerts during the summer.  Besides sampling the great food at a local agriturismo, you might also want to visit the Museo Nazionale Atestino (National Museum of Atestine Artifacts) or the cathedral (1690-1720) for a little "taste" of the area.
