Verona to Venice: a short great route through Northern Italy

This easy route crosses Veneto region from the West to the East, touching Verona, Montagnana, Padua and Venice, following river Adige and river Brenta. Ride your bike for two days: the road is flat and mostly along bike paths. Get on the boat on DAY 4: the Burchiello will take you for a slow historical mini-cruise on Brenta river. It was used by the richest classes of Venice to reach the city from their villas in the countryside. Now it is a modern and comfortable boat, equipped with air-conditioning, bar, toilets and a panoramic deck for a full view around. We'll get off in front of San Marco church, in Venice. What a scenographic arrival!

Program

Individual arrival in Verona. Bike fitting (if rental included).

Overnight in Verona.

In the morning we wait for you at the shop for the bike fitting.

From Verona we head east following the river Adige, cycling on bike paths and narrow country roads. We stop in Cologna Veneta, city of the delicious mandorlato (nougat) and then we get to Montagnana, a small medieval city surrounded by well-preserved old walls.

Overnight in Montagnana.

We leave Montagnana and ride towards the smooth profile of Euganean Hills, among cultivated fields in the countryside and by sinuous channels. We’ll cross the village of Este. Park your bike and enjoy a walk in the square with its cafes and under the shadow of big trees in the beautiful park of the castle. Pedaling to Padua, you can visit Monselice, Catajo castle, Valsanzibio monumental garden… Once arrived, we’ll come and pick up the bikes. Enjoy your evening in Padua!

Overnight in Padua.

Today we’ll enjoy a slow mini-cruise on Brenta’s waters: a river of Villas.
The boat passes through nine swivelling bridges and five locks. It stops at Villa Foscari known as La Malcontenta, Villa Widmann in Mira and Villa Pisani in Stra for guided visits. If you like, book the optional lunch at the famous restaurant Il Burchiello in Oriago, where the barge moors. The mini-cruise concludes its trip in Venice, right in front of San Marco church. What a fantastic scenario!

Overnight in Mestre.
