Cycling holidays Bolzano - Venice

From the mountains to the sea

Charming valleys and enchanting towns, mountain landscapes and, of course, the Grand Canal. All this awaits you on your cycle tour across South Tyrol to the Adriatic Sea. The motto of this route is “experience and enjoy”. The path leads past dreamy vineyards and through picturesque cities. A glass of red wine, antipasti and the original Italian tiramisu provide the culinary enjoyment during well-deserved breaks.

If you are a pleasure seeker and culture lover, you have reason to celebrate: on a cycling trip to the lagoon city, you will find everything your heart desires. The starting point of the tour is South Tyrol’s capital, Bolzano. From there you cycle over rolling hills, through culturally rick cities and pass impressive landscapes. Short detours and pauses are planned in Trento, Riva on Lake Garda, Verona, Vicenza and Abano. You always have the goal in mind! After seven days, you will reach the majestic lagoon city of Venice. And that’s not all: St Mark’s Square, a gondola ride on the Grand Canal and the cities unique charm make for a grand finale to the journey.

Itinerary

Information talk and bike handout. The capital of South Tyrol invites you for a walk. The Laubengasse, the fruit market and the Waltherplatz already convey Italian flair. A world sensation awaits with the "Ötzi" in the Archaeology Museum. 

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

First, you will continue to cycle along the Adige, through Rovereto and on to Mori from where the tour leads westwards towards Lake Garda. After a short ascent, you will descend down to the lake to Torbole and further on to Riva. From here, a boat trip will then take you down the entire length of the lake.

 

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

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

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. From Abano Terme, you can easily travel by bus to Padua, the city of St Anthony and the scholars. There you will have enough time to enjoy the thermal baths. If you are culturally-minded, you can enjoy Padua overnight for an additional charge!

 

approx. 35 to 55 km

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.

 

approx. 40 to 50 km

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.
