Cycling holidays Bolzano - Venice

Cycling: Bolzano - Venice

Wine. Palazzi. Gondoliers.

Somewhere, far beyond the horizon, Venice and the sea are waiting for you!  But there will be many temptations on your way there. Stunning countryside and attractive towns invite you to linger on your journey: the vineyards of South Tyrol, Verona, Vicenza and Padua, Lake Garda.

Relax in the thermal spas in Abano or in traditional Italian taverns. And then, eventually, you will see the sea. Venice. The town built on poles. Lord Byron once wrote, “I saw from out the wave of her structure’s rise, as from the stroke of the enchanter’s wand: A thousand years their cloudy wings expand around me”. Venice will also bewitch you. And yet the journey will be your goal!

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
200 m
320 m

Partly flat and partly 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. 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. In category charm, this extra night is included.

approx. 35 – 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.

Tour character

The terrain is flat to slightly hilly. The only strenuous stretch is when you ride through the Monti Berici hills. The first two stages are mainly on 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.

Ein wertvolles Erlebnis
Die Reise hat unsere Erwartungen erfüllt. Die Strecke war abwechslungsreich und auch interessant. Die Tagesrouten waren gut berechnet. Die App von Eurobike war sehr gut und wir konnten der Navigation bis auf ein- zwei Mal bestens folgen. Die Städte haben uns sehr gut gefallen und wir haben viel gesehen. Die Schifffahrt auf dem Gardasee war für uns zu lange. Wir hätten uns dafür mehr Zeit in Sirmione gewünscht. Die Fahrräder waren in Top Zustand, gut gewartet, einfach zu bedienen. Die Einführung vor Ort war kurz und gut. Der Transfer hat gut geklappt. Die Hotline war gut zu erreichen und die Hilfe klappte auch gut. Der Aufenthalt in Abano Terme hat uns nicht soo gut gefallen. Wir waren im Hotel Terme Roma. Wir hätten lieber in Padua übernachtet. Die Hotels waren sonst gut gewählt und von der Lage her meistens in Stadtnähe, so dass wir uns mit den Rädern gut auch die Städte anschauen konnten. Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen. Vielen Dank!
