Lake Reschen - Venice sporty

Light-footed pedalling downhill to the south.

This tour with Eurobike from the Reschensee to the world-famous lagoon city is a great active trip for fit cyclists. The stage destinations read like a "who's who" of Italian cities. In just one week you can discover Merano, Trento, Lake Garda, Verona, Padua and the breathtakingly beautiful Venice - our perfectly planned route makes this possible without any stress. In combination with the beautiful nature and the excellent Italian cuisine, this trip will stay in your memory for a long time!

Details of the 8-day cycle tour

The first attraction awaits shortly after you begin: The Reschensee with its sunken church tower. The stages to the spa and garden city of Merano and the next day to Trento are peppered with castles and ruins as well as unique nature. Also observe the plants as they change - the further south you cycle, apple orchards are replaced by peach and kiwi plantations. Everywhere, however, you will find grapevines (and excellent wines!).

On day 5, you will pass the historically significant town of Solferino on the way to Verona. In 1859, a particularly gruesome battle took place here, which resulted in the founding of the Red Cross. Our tour then leads via Verona and Padua to Venice, where the sea welcomes you for the "Grande finale".

Highlights of the cycle tour from Reschensee to Venice

  • The church tower in the Reschensee: Around 160 houses once stood on the site, which was flooded in the 1950s to create a reservoir. Today, the church tower of St. Katharina rising out of the water is a reminder of the village.
  • Strolling through Laubengasse in Bolzano: Soak up the hustle and bustle of Bolzano's most famous street. Why not order a cappuccino in one of the numerous cafés and really live the Italian "dolcé vita".
  • Boat trip across Lake Garda: One of the absolute highlights of the tour is the Lake Garda crossing by boat. Enjoy not only the fresh breeze and the beauty of the lake, but also the architecture on the shore.
  • The Piazza delle Erbe in Verona: Nothing takes centre stage in Italian cities like the characteristic piazza. As the hub of life, you could certainly linger here for hours - Verona's oldest square offers countless opportunities for this.

Useful information about the tour through South Tyrol to the Adriatic Sea

The quite demanding stages are between 50 and 100 kilometres long, so you should be in good shape. As far as the route is concerned, you can look forward to very good conditions on the Adige Cycle Path. Don't forget to take advantage of the tour's included services, which are all about Italian enjoyment, from grappa tasting to a boat trip on Lake Garda.

Itinerary

Sample hotel: Panorama

Today you will cycle alongside Lake Reschen with a great view of the sunken church of Graun until you reach the medieval village of Glurns (perfectly preserved medieval city walls). Schlanders, the capital of the famous Vinschgau is only one village you will come through. On your way you will come across some pretty castles (mountaineer Reinhold Messner’s castle Juval) and you will get marvellous views of the impressive mountain massif Ortlermassiv and the mountain pass Stilfserjoch whilst you are rolling down on your bike into the tranquil Merano with its Mediterranean vegetation.

Sample hotel: Flora

Today’s stage will take you via Lana (Schnatterpeck Altar) and through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolean Wine Road, past many fortresses, castles, and ruins such as Hocheppan (famous frescos), to Lake Caldaro. You will stay overnight in the cosy wine town, Auer. You will cycle mostly along the river Adige, and partly through orchards to Salurn, where the German speaking South Tyrol ends. The famous Trentino vineyards are located next to the dam ways. These ways lead you to Trento with its lovely old town, cathedral and castle Buonconsiglio.

Sample hotel: Grand Hotel Trento

First, you will continue cycling along the Adige through Rovereto and on to Mori from where the route leads westwards towards Lake Garda. In Mori you will taste the world’s famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After a short ascent (Passo San Giovanni), you will descend down to the lake and to Torbole and further on to Riva. From here, a boat will take you down the entire length of the lake.

Sample hotel: Suisse

Today's bike tour leads on lonely paths, through vines, peach trees and kiwi plantations to Solferino. The place where Garibaldi united Italy in the famous “Battle of Solferino”. 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).

Sample hotel: Palace

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.

Sample hotel: Key

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 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!

Sample hotel: Elite

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

Tour character

You will ride on beautiful bike paths mainly along the Adige River. The route will lead you from Reschenpass (mountain pass) almost 1,500 metres in altitude downhill to Lake Garda. However, you will have to cycle up some small climbs too. Overall, you will find yourself on beautiful bike paths and asphalted country roads. Unfortunately, moderate traffic is unavoidable on some short connecting roads.
