Bolzano - Venice

individual cycle tour | 8 days / 7 nights

Bolzano - Venice 5 9 4.56

From the mountains to the sea.

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 piles. 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

1st day: Arrival in Bolzano

Welcome briefing and bike fitting.

2nd day: Bolzano - Trento approx. 70 km

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).

3rd day: Trento - Lake Garda South approx. 50 km + boat trip

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.

4th day: Lake Garda South - Verona approx. 50 km

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).

5th day: Verona - Vicenza approx. 70 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.

6th day: Vicenza - Abano Terme/Padua approx. 45 - 55 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!

7th day: Abano Terme/Padua - Venice/Mestre approx. 40/50 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.

8th day: Departure or extended visit to Mestre

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

The route

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.

Bolzano - Venice

Bolzano - Venice

von Jan Boutmans | Oct 13, 2016

The choice of 90% of the hotels was excellent... Only the hotel in Desenzano was poor we had nearly some place to put our luggage.

Eurobike - Lisa sagt | Oct 13, 2016

Dear Mr. Boutmans, thank you for your travel feedback. I'm sorry that you found your hotel room in Desenzano too small. It is not an easy thing to keep the standard for 7 different hotels at the same level. Thank you for your understanding. Best wishes, Lisa


Eurocycletastic!!!

von Debra Lehky | Sep 12, 2016

Wonderful trip through glorious Italy from Bolzano to Venice via lush vineyards, stunning scenery and the magnificent Lake Garda. Well organised from beginning to end. Best advice we were given at our welcome chat "if you get lost ...ask a local" . Well we did get lost (our fault) , asked a local lady on a bike. Not only did she tell us where we went wrong she escorted us back to the right road (opposite direction to her journey) will always be grateful to her saving our day!!


Bolzano - Venice

von Hugh Berry | Aug 10, 2016

The welcome and briefing by Johannes was very good, the instructions were straight forward and the maps very useful when Eurobike signposting was not easy to find or may have been removed. We found the intermediate distances given on stage 2 were confusing - Cadino is shown as 38km whereas it was more like 26km and the others were also wrong.The routes were good and the regional information in the booklet was very interesting and useful. All the hotels were well chosen and we were looked after very well. A very enjoyable holiday.


North Italy Tour

von Kerr Noble | Jun 20, 2016

Great variety of cycling along Adige, to top of Lake Garda and through Veneto countryside to Venice. Also enough time to explore Verona, Vicenza and Padua en route.
