Trevisoapprox. 25 km
Today‘s stage leads you to the beautiful capital of the province, Treviso, a city still relatively unknown among tourists. The cycle path will guide you along the former city fortifications before entering the heart of the „citta delle aque“. The city owes this epithet to the numerous waterways that cross its centre. You continue past the dome, the palazzi and the patrician homes decorated with frescoes and into the open countryside before soon arriving at your hotel.
A leisurely cycle through the agricultural back-country starts the stage today, where lonely paths lead away to mysterious mansions. After traversing the Piave River you will follow the „Strada del Vino del Piave“. That is where the widely known Pinot Grigio has achieved real mastery. Cycling amidst grapevines for approx. 15km you can certainly risk a little tasting.
The focus of today’s stage is the charming small town Castelfranco Veneto, whose origins date back to the old Romans. It was them who erected the „castrum“ at the intersection of the old Roman roads to Vicenza, Padua and Asolo. The fortress was built centuries later, which is still entirely preserved today. On the way back, you will see the country estate „Villa Emo“, one of the masterpieces of the famous medieval architect Andrea Palladio and should definitely be visited (entrance included!).
A morning transfer will take you to Valdobbiadene, the capital of the Prosecco region. The small piazza with its many coffee bars are very inviting – you should taste a cappuccino here! A short climb will be rewarded with a gorgeous view of the almost never-ending grapevines. The lovely route will lead you through several wine villages, one of which will be your host when you are invited to a tasting of the world-famous sparkling wine (included). After that only a few kilometres remain and soon you will again reach your hotel.
Today‘s stage will again lead you towards Treviso. A former railway track, which was adapted to a cycle path, will guide you onwards to the natural reserve of the Sile River. You will reach and cross the small but famous river, which was one of the settings of the „Divine Comedy“ by Dante Alighieri.
A easy tour with mainly flat stages. Only the stage „Prosecco“ features three longer ascents between approximately 1 and 2 kilometers. Usually you cycle on low-traffic side roads and asphalted agricultural roads, sometimes also on cycle paths with unsurfaced tracks. At the river crossing and the entry of Treviso you have to expect more traffic.
