Cycling holidays Bolzano - Venice, with charme

Cycling: Bolzano - Venice

Wine – Palazzos – Gondoliers

Imposing mountains, vineyards, orchards of juicy, ripe peaches, medieval villages and a gentle sea breeze – you’ll experience all of this in northern Italy on this cycle tour with Eurobike. From Bolzano to Venice a new spectacle is revealed every kilometre. In addition to beautiful landscapes, the elegant villas will enchant you.

The eight-day cycle tour starts in Bolzano, with the rivers Eisack and Etsch always by your side as you cycle. From there you cycle to Trento and the beautiful Lake Garda. After a dip in the cooling blue lake, you continue to the city where ‘Amore’ is in the air – Verona. In the historic centre you can find the balcony where Romeo met Juliet, and a colourful wall where thousands of loved-up couples have professed their love. Become captivated by the tragic love story. On day five you will arrive in Vicenza and the famous spa town of Abano Terme before finally reaching the lagoon city of Venice. 

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. The capital of the South Tyrol region invites you for your first walk through the famous streets with Italian flair: the Laubengasse, the Fruit Market (Obstmarkt) and the square Waltherplatz. A must see is also the Archaeological Museum with „Ötzi“.

You will pedal along beautiful cycle paths beside the river Adige, partly through orchards, to Salorno where the German speaking Tyrol ends. The pathways along a dam lead right to Trento (picturesque old town).

approx. 70 km
265 m
185 m

First, you will continue to cycle along the Adige, to Rovereto from here the tour leads westwards towards Lake Garda. In Mori you will taste the world famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna.

After a short ascent, you will descend down to the lake to Torbole and on to Riva. From here, a boat trip will take you down the entire length of the lake to Sirmione or Desenzano.

approx. 50 km + boat trip

Partly flat, partly slightly hilly, the route will take you through the vineyards on to Verona, a town full of sights (the Festival Arena, Juliet’s house, the old town walls).

approx. 50 km
190 – 240 m
210 – 240 m

Today’s route is initially flat and then you will cycle through the Monti Berici hills to the excursion area of Vicenza, with a beautiful view over the city.

To make this longer stage a bit shorter, you can also travel the first part by train to San Bonifacio. In the old town of Vicenza you can feel the spirit of Palladio, the famous architect from the Middle Ages.

approx. 70 km
470 m
475 m

On leaving Vicenza, you will see numerous Venetian villas, such as the Villa Rotonda. The route along the river Bacchiglione leads to Abano Terme, one of the famous Italian spa towns with lots of cultural heritage to enjoy.

approx. 45 km
15 – 30 m
55 – 70 m

With a light wind behind you most of the time, it’s an easy ride towards the sea. The landscape is full of meadows and fields. This stage will take you to the mainland before Venice, with its excellent bus service into the city of lagoons. At the end of your tour, not far from Marcus square, you can look forward to a little Grappa tasting session!

approx. 40 – 50 km
15 – 35 m
15 – 40 m

The tour can also be combined with the Adige cycle path, as well as the “Venice to Florence” tour.

Map Bolzano - Venice

Tour character

The terrain is flat to slightly hilly. The only strenuous stretch is through the Monti Berici hills. The first two stages are mainly cycle paths and to the south and east of Lake Garda mostly service and side roads. Due to a lack of cycle paths along some sections, cycling on roads with moderate traffic is unfortunately unavoidable. Nearly all roads are asphalted.

Interessante Veloreise durch verschiedene italienische Städte
Wir haben die gut ausgeschilderte Veloreise sehr genossen. Auch ohne E-Bike war sie gut zu bewältigen. Wir konnten die schönen Städte nach der Ankunft noch geniessen.

Tolle Reise, mit schönen Erinnerungen
Wir haben eine tolle Reise gehabt mit vielen schönen Städte. Der Gebäcktransport hat wunderbar geklappt. Die Steckenführung über die App war sehr gut. Unter Hotel mit Charm verstehen wir etwas anderes, aber mehrheitlich haben uns die Hotels gefallen. Die Lage der Hotel war gut.
