Program

Individual arrival in Verona.

Overnight in Verona.

From the city center of Verona, you’ll bike towards Garda Lake among vineyards and olive trees. The view on the lake is wonderful: a charming blue mirror among high mountains. You can visit the villages of Garda and Bardolino, and then head back to the City of Love.

Overnight in Verona.

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

Overnight in Montagnana.

From the flatlands to the foot of the Berici Hills along little roads in the middle of the vineyards, passing through ancient villages with hundred-year-old villas and parks. Before getting to Vicenza, the charming city of Andrea Palladio, you can visit from outside one of his most famous masterpieces, Villa La Rotonda.

Overnight in Vicenza.

The route winds in the countryside of Vicenza and approaches to the foot of the Prealps, an area rich of rural houses and elegant Venetian Villas. Make a stop in the walled city of Marostica, famous for its living chess event and square, and in Villa Angarano, designed by Andrea Palladio: there you taste their nice organic wines. The arrival in Bassano del Grappa crossing the well-known wooden bridge will let you enjoy the beautiful view over the mountains.

Overnight in Bassano del Grappa.

You skirt the lush of Monte Grappa and the hills of Asolo, then following bike paths along streams of spring water you arrive in Castelfranco Veneto, a walled city famous for being Giorgione’s hometown. The road to Treviso follows a shady bike path built over a old railway.

Overnight in Treviso.

From Treviso we follow the windy Sile river on a beautiful bike path, deep in the green of the woods, just interrupted by some noble Venetian Villas that reflect on the clear water of the river.

The bike itinerary ends in Mestre. Here we’ll bring you the luggage, collect the bikes and wave you goodbye. Venezia is only 20 minutes away by bus or 10 minutes by train!

If you have never been to Venice, consider spending at least an extra day to visit it.
