Itinerary

The hotel staff will provide you with tour information and rental bikes.

Your first bike tour will lead you through the national park of the volcanic cones of the thermal region. You will cycle over gently rolling hills with wonderful views until you reach the pretty medieval town of Arqua Petrarca. The narrow, winding streets of the town offer many surprises to its visitors. At the end of your tour, wonderful ways will lead you back to your hotel.

In the morning, a minibus will take you to Chioggia. It is not a coincidence that your today’s starting point is nicknamed “Little Venice”! Many small bridges and canals remind its visitors of the town’s bigger sister. Before you start your bike trip, you should take some time to enjoy the flair of the Venetian lagoon. Later you will cycle mainly along the ancient river Bacchiglione, which was once used by cargo ships, the so-called “burci”.

Today, you will again cycle along the river Bacchiglione. Through fertile fields you will come to Vicenza. This is the city which helped a famous architect of the Middle Ages, Palladio, to gain worldwide fame. Many of his villas and palaces still dominate the city. The Teatro Olimpico and the Basilica are a must-see for any visitor. Beautiful squares invite you to stay and drink a cup of cappuccino. In the afternoon, you will take the bus or train back to your hotel.

Today’s route takes you along the waterways through Padua. These waterways form an ingenious network by which you can explore the city of St Anthony. It will take you to all the different attractions, such as the city wall, St Anthony’s Chruch, Cafe Petrocchi, or the Prato della Valle.

Beautiful flat roads will lead you along the hills to the Villa dei Vescovi. This villa is the prototype of a Venetian villa and its renovations have just been finished. In the Enotec, you can try wine from the Euganean Hills as well as specialties from the surrounding area. Moreover, you can enjoy a picnic on the terrace of the villa, which would for sure be the perfect way to end this wonderful trip.

Tour character

The day trips are rather easy and mainly on flat roads. Only in the Eugenia Hills there are some short climbs to be tackled. You will find yourself on quiet side roads and cycle paths. Mostly, the roads are asphalted. In cities you will sometimes come across more traffic.
