Alps and lakes: the green ring
Individual arrival in Verona.
6 PM Bike fitting at Itinera Bike shop, if rental included.
Overnight in Verona.
From Verona you head South-East following the river Adige cycling on a bike path that crosses the Veneto countryside. Here, among immense cultivated fields and ancient rural house, you cross a few villages such as Bologna Veneta, city of the delicious mandorlato (nougat), ride through the small village of Lonigo and finally reach Brendola: just a few houses in the countryside.
Overnight in the tiny village of Brendola, in the Berici hills.
The route leaves Brendola behind and we climb one of the few uphills of this tour: +200 meters in about 5 km. Anyway it is not a steep hill, take it slowly and you’ll be quickly riding down already.
We ride through Vicenza, the charming city of Andrea Palladio. If you like, enjoy a coffe stop in one of the historical cafes of the city center.
And here we are again in the countryside, surrounded by corn fields! We ride North towards the first elevation of the Prealps. On the way, the village of Marostica deserves a visit because of the famous chess square, where every two year a living chess match takes place. Finally, the itinerary gets to Bassano del Grappa passing by Villa Angarano, designed by Andrea Palladio. Don’t get there too late, Bassano is a charming town at the foot of the mountains that features a famous wooden bridge.
Overnight in Bassano del Grappa.
The itinerary follows the river Brenta all day long. Initially, the river goes through the mountains along a green valleys that get more and more narrow until the itinerary follows a bike path that is flanked by the water of the river and the rocks of the mountains. The bike path continues in Valsugana, a large valley surrounded by high mountains, crosses cultivated fields and forests until it gets to Borgo Valsugana, a charming village overlooked by a castle.
Overnight in Borgo Valsugana.
The itinerary keeps following the Valsugana bike path until it reaches two lakes at the beginning of the valley. The route flanks Lake Caldonazzo and with a small detour it is possible to reach the little Lake of Levico: in both lakes it is difficult to resist the temptation of a dive in the refreshing water! The last miles of the route are downhill until the city of Trento. Dedicate some time to the visit of the city: the Cathedral of San Vigilio and the Castle of Buonconsiglio are unmissable.
Overnight in Trento.
Trento, a bike-friendly city, is crossed by river Adige. The itinerary follows the bike path that flanks the river, heading south: the valley is spotted with many medieval castles, visible from the bike path. The route passes by Rovereto, a charming old town, under Avio Castle (worth a visit!) and then reaches the small village of Rivalta, where we spend the night.
Overnight in Rivalta.
On the bikes again, we keep following the river Adige but soon, after one of the few climbs of this itinerary, surprise: Lake Garda! The route goes all the way down to the lake and we reach the village of Garda, located in its beautiful bay with Punta San Vigilio on a side and the Rocca guarding the village from above. A coffee in the old centre is worthy.
After some kilometers by the water, we climb our last hill and reach a canal. There the bike path will take us back to Verona.
