Lake Garda to Venice
60 km – Some small climbs
In the morning we wait for you at the shop for the bike fitting!
From the city center of Verona, we bike towards Garda Lake among vineyards and olive trees. The view on the lake is wonderful: a charming blue mirror among high mountains. We visit the villages of Garda and Bardolino. Way back in minibus or train.
62 km – Flat
From Verona we head east following the river Adige, cycling on bike paths and small 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.
50 km – Some small climbs
We cycle 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, we visit from outside one of his most famous masterpieces, Villa La Rotonda.
47 km – Flat
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. We stop in the walled city of Marostica, famous for its living chess event and square, and in Villa Angarano, designed by Andrea Palladio: there we taste their nice organic wines. Finally we arrive to Bassano del Grappa crossing the well-known wooden bridge and enjoying the beautiful view over the mountains.
64 km – Mostly flat
We skirt the lush Monte Grappa and the hills of Asolo, then we follow bike paths along streams of spring water until Castelfranco Veneto, a walled city famous for being Giorgione’s hometown. We get to Treviso following a shady bike path built over a old railway.
52 KM – Flat
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. We reach Mestre passing through San Giuliano Park, a green area with a great view over the Venezia. The bike itinerary ends in Mestre. Venezia is only 10 minutes away by train.
Back to Verona by train. It is about one hour and a half!
