    Start Bolzano

    Make your way to Bolzano. The nearest airports are Innsbruck and Verona, but Bergamo, Treviso, Venice and Munich are approx. 4 hours by train. Bolzano is the capital of the South Tyrol, with its pretty network of winding alleys and upmarket shops to explore. The world-famous Museum of Archaeology with the ‘Otzi’ Iceman and the Reinhold Messner Mountain Museum at nearby Sigmundskron Castle make Bolzano a city of mountaineering history and culture.

    Cycle on quiet roads following the Adige River to Trento, capital of the Trentino region

    Today you will ride mainly along the Adige River, through orchards and vineyards and passing through the villages of Ora, Egna and Salomo. The dam pathways lead onward to Trento, set in a wide glacial valley guarded by the peaks of the Dolomites. There is the possibility of taking the train at several points to shorten this stage.

    Continue riding along the river to the magnificent Lake Garda. A four hour ferry cruise takes you to the south shore of the lake

    As you pedal along the Adige, you reach Rovereto and Mori, which is famous for its quality wines. From here you cycle westwards to Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy. After a short ascent, a refreshing descent will follow and lead you to the picturesque towns of Torbole and Riva. The ferry cruise will take you to the southern part of Lake Garda. Depending on the availability tonight your accommodation will either be in Peschiera or Desenzano; both pleasant Italian towns on the shore of the lake. (Please note that the ferry service across Lake Garda is a seasonal service and schedules are generally released quite late. If the ferry is not running, or cancelled due to adverse weather/strikes etc. then we will organise a van transfer to your next hotel).

    Leaving the shores of Lake Garda, you head to the beautiful city of Verona, made famous by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet

    Today your ride is mainly on quiet roads and cycle paths as you make your way to the legendary city of Verona. Located on the Adige River, Verona is arguably the most beautiful city in Veneto. Verona is easily discoverable on foot, taking in the famous sites such as the Roman arena, the Basilica San Zeno and of course, Juliet's house and the famous balcony!

    Today's ride is mainly on quiet roads and cycle paths as you make your way to the legendary city of Vicenza, arguably the most beautiful city in Veneto

    At first the route today is flat, and then you head through the Monti Berici; a hilly region just south of Vicenza, with wonderfully panoramic views of the local vineyards and then Vicenza. On your route there are plenty of places to stop and admire the view, and have a break from the climbs! The old city centre of Vicenza is characterized by the beautiful private palaces and public buildings designed by Andrea Palladio, the famous 16th Century architect known all over the world. Today's route can be shortened by taking the train or there is a slightly flatter route for those who would prefer to avoid any major climbs.

    Pass the wonderful Palladian Villa Rotonda, as you cycle to the Euganean hills

    Cycling out of Vicenza you come across the beautiful Palladian Villa Rotonda. Along the Bacchiglione river, the route continues towards the scenic landscape of the Euganean hills, the biggest European thermal resort, with an overnight in a wonderful hotel in verdant surroundings, complete with a thermal pool.

    Cycling out of the Euganean Hills towards the Adriatic sea and city of Venice. Your hotel is located in Mestre, a short bus ride from the fascinating and iconic city

    The tour continues easily through the flat Veneto. You will cycle along gentle minor roads to Mestre, Venice’s mainland. Cycling out of Padua, the route continues towards the Adriatic sea and the city of Venice. Your hotel is located in Mestre, a short bus ride from the fascinating and iconic city. We choose to stay in Mestre as the logistics of cycling into Venice are incredibly difficult; the road connecting Venice and the mainland can be very busy and cycling is certainly not recommended. Getting to Venice from Mestre is simple; buses are every 15 mins and take approximately 15 mins. If you would prefer to stay in central Venice this can be arranged for an additional supplement.

    End Mestre

    End your trip in Mestre (Venice). If you have time, Mestre (Venice) is an excellent place to spend a couple of days enjoying the delights of this world famous city; take a gondola ride along the Grand Canal, marvel at Venetian art through the ages and relax with a gelato (or two!)
