Veneto´s Villas & Wine with Charm

In the homeland of great artists and renowned vines.

Gentle hills covered in lush green make the cyclist’s heart pound and magnificent villas as well as famous architcture will simply amaze you. We are of course taking about the beautiful Veneto. So that you can enjoy this Italian region and its unique flair in all its glory, we offer this tour as a ‚Charm‘-option. A historic Venetian villa and a modern family-run hotel are the perfect starting point for your cycling excursions through the heart of the Veneto region. And since we are in Italy, the culinary aspect must not be disregarded. Fresh, fragrant wines, antipasti, pizza and pasta not only spoil your nose but also your palate.

Details of the cycling holiday in the Veneto

Since you will only be staying in two different hotels on this holiday, you will only start your daily stages from two starting points, Ponzana Veneto and Longa Schiavon. These two locations are perfect for daily excursions to romantic towns such as Asolo, Bassano del Grappa, Marostica, Vicenza and Valdobbiadene.

Cycle holiday highlights at a glance:

  • Strada del Vino del Piave: True to the motto of our cycle holiday, the well-known wine route „Strada del Vino del Piave“ awaits you on the second day. There you cycle through the fragrant and picturesque vines and can also try one or another glass of Pinot Grigio, which is pressed to perfection there.
  • Prosecco Hill: The Veneto is not only known for its delicious wine, but also for its Prosecco. Therefore, of course a trip to Valdobbiadene, the Prosecco capital, is a must. At the top of the so-called Prosecco Hill, a wonderful view of the grapevines opens up.
  • Vicenza: On the way from Longa Schiavon to Vicenza, the buildings by star architect Palladio, the basilica, the Teatro Olimpico and the Piazza dei Sgnori are impressive.
  • Marostica: The town of Marostica is not only known for its medieval style, but above all for its „living chess game“. The game is reenacted with living figures on a huge chess board on the palace square.

Itinerary

Handing over of the travel documents and rental bikes by hotel staff.

As a start to today’s cycle tour you cycle leisurely through the hinterland used for agriculture. Remote paths lead you to several grand country estates. After crossing the river Piave you follow the „Strada del Vino del Piave“. Here the renowed Pinot Grigio grapes are pressed to perfection. For about 15 kilometres you find yourself amidst vines and can definitely grab a handful of grapes to taste...

In the morning by transfer to Valdobbiadene, the Prosecco capital. At the small Piazza various cafés invite you to your first cappuccino break. Then you tackle a short ascent before the marvellous views of the sheer endless vines open up in front of you. The stunning route leads from one wine-growing village to the next. After that there are only a few kilometres left until you have reached your feel-good accommodation again. In the evening a prosecco tasting is included.

Past the Montebelluna the cycle route leads to the fantastic Villa Maser. A somewhat steeper ascent takes you afterwards into the Medieval village Asolo. Linger for a bit in this enchanting place and stroll through the arcades providing shade. You enjoy a marvellous descent down into the flat terrain of the land all the way to Longa Schiavon, your next feel-good accommodation.

Past extensive corn fields of the region you cycle today along beautiful paths to Vicenza. Here the buildings of the Medieval star-architect Palladio are everywhere. The basilica and the ‚Teatro Olimpico‘ impress just as much as the grandiose Piazza die Signori. Enjoy a nice glass of wine before you cycle back to your hotel in Longa Schiavon.

This cycle tour initially leads you into the hilly landscape around the little town of Marostica. After a longer ascent you are rewarded for your efforts with a marvellous view over the region. Numerous cherry trees along the side of the road invite you to a blissful fruit snack and make you forget the strenuous efforts from before in a heartbeat. We recommend you plan a longer break in Marostica. The stunning Medieval village is renowned because of the ‚lively game of chess‘. From here there is only a short route back to the hotel.

Tour character

An easy double-rally with stages on gently hilly terrain. There are only a few longer ascents to be tackled between about 1 and 2 kilometres in length. You cycle mostly on sideroads with very little traffic and asphalted agricultural paths, in some instances also on cycle paths with a natural surface. Expect more traffic when crossing rivers.
