Itinerary

Individual Arrival to the start hotel on the mainland from Venice (Mestre/ Quarto d‘ Altino ). The “Serenissima” is awaiting you with a lot of places of interests. You can reach the centre very good by public busses (stopover in the near of your hotel). 

Today you can choose between two routes. Either cycle along the dam and lagoon to Venice OR along the river Sile to Jesolo/Caorle.

You start your day by cycling for the first few kilometres. Afterwards you go by ferry to Punta Sabbioni (ticket not included). You continue your bike tour along Litorale di Cavallino – a headland in the Nortwestern part of the Lagoon. Before you leave Venice definitely you have the possibility to visit the beacon at the end of the island. On your way to Jesolo you should take the opportunity for a bath in the Sea. Your overnight stay is in Jesolo or Caorle.

If you choose the alternative through the hinterland, you cycle along the river Sile. The natural finished river always con a continual volume of water and flows quiet. That’s the reason why the name is deducted from the Latin word “silet”, which means “silence, keep quiet”. Passing the Ruins of Torre Caligo, a medieval tower which is named of the canal Caligo, you arrive directly to Jesolo.

Along the coast you reach Caorle where you should visit the historic centre. Say goodbye to the Sea and welcome the Julian Alps! During the Venetian Republic Portogruaro was an important harbour of the “Serenissima” and nowadays people still think that Portogruaro is the most Venetian city in the heartland of Italy.

Discover roman cities, ancient churches and lonesome landscapes! From Marano Lagunare you go by boat on the verge of Aquilea which was a major city of the Roman Empire in former times. Take the opportunity to visit the excavations in the open-air ground and in two museums.

Possibility to shorten the first stage by train (not incl.)

You start your tour with a tour through the hinterland of Trieste before you come back to the Sea. You follow the coastal path to suggestive villages like Duino, Sistiana, Miramare and Barcola. We recommend visiting the palace of Miramare which is located above the bay of Grignano in the midst of a beautiful park with more than 2000 different species of plants. You spend your evening above the Golf of Trieste, which was under Habsburg rule in former times. You can shorten this stage by train if you want to spend more time on sightseeing.

After a few kilometres you reach Slovenia! Enjoy your tour through the well-known villages of Koper (Capodistria), Izola (Isola d´Istria) and Piran (Pirano) until you reach the health resort of Portorož which is located at the Slovenian Riviera. We recommend doing the longer stage which leads through valley Val Rosandra in the heartland.

You pass the salt lakes of Secovlje where Sea salt is extracted through natural evaporation. You continue through the Croation part of Istria and biggest peninsula of the Adriatic Sea in slightly hilly terrain to Poreč. Take the opportunity to visit the Euphrasius basilica which is part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage.

Von Italien nach Kroatien
In Mestre gestartet haben wir zunächst Venedig mit dem Wassertaxi besucht. (Tagesticket) danach ging es über zwei Linien weiter mit dem Wassertaxi nach Jesolo (lange Wartezeit Boote waren voll und haben die Fahrräder nicht mitgenommen). Die Unterkunft in Jesolo war gut, allerdings das einzige Hotel der Tour, wo wir gefühlt nicht willkommen waren! Alle anderen Hotels waren sehr gut! Abwechslungsreiche Strecke, wir sind an der Küste entlang gefahren und konnten sogar zwischendurch im Meer baden. Gut ausgebaute Fahrradwege, teilweise längere Strecke an der Straße (nicht ganz ungefährlich), aber dann wieder direkt am Wasser entlang. Wir haben schöne Badeorte kennengelernt, aber mit Triest auch eine schöne Hafenstadt und ein kleines italienisches Dorf. Rundum eine sehr schöne Tour, können wir empfehlen. Mit Eurobike wieder sehr zufrieden, gute Beratung und viel Geduld😉

Vielen Dank für Ihre tolle Bewertung! Es freut uns sehr, dass Sie mit uns und unserem Service wieder zufrieden waren! Es tut mir allerdings außerordentlich leid, dass Sie sich in einem Hotel nicht willkommen fühlten. Wir arbeiten mit unseren Hotels seit vielen Jahren zusammen und machen generell stets positive Erfahrungen damit. Ich hoffe, Sie lassen sich die schönen Urlaubserinnerungen wegen der schlechten Laune eines Rezeptionisten nicht zerstören.

Insgesamt sehr gut - eine lohnende Tour
Die Betreuung vor Ort durch Fun Active Tours war sehr gut; gute Einführung (englisch) und Bereitstellung einer Autoparkmöglichkeit direkt bei der Firma. Landschaftlich schön, aber ein wenig auch langweilig, waren die ersten 3 Tage bis Grado. Danach sehr abwechslungsreiche Streckenführung bis Porec. Sinnvoll wären Kilometerangaben in den Reisekarten.

Wide Range of Experiences!
This starts with a side of Italy that is very different from the usual tourist destinations, and you experience the changes in cultures, food and languages as you head north from Venice and then into Trieste, Slovenia and Croatia. A truly fascinating and beautiful ride through the varied history of the region.

Meer und mehr
Eine wunderschöne und abwechselungsreiche Radreise. Vom Meer über Flüsse und Berge ist alles dabei und die Strecke hat uns trotz des nicht optimalen Wetters sehr, sehr gut gefallen. Die Hotels befinden sich großteils nahe des Radweges, so dass man nicht unnütz suchen muss. Das Kartenmaterial und die Markierungen sind vorbildlich.
