Introductory meeting and issue of the rental bikes. Enjoy today the cozy arcades of Bolzano, the fruit market and the Walther square with Italian flair. And if you have time, visit "Ötzi" in the Museum of Archaeology.
Mostly along the Adige, partly through the orchards to Salurn, where the German speaking South Tyrol comes to an end. The dam pathways lead to Trento. The historic city centre is very much worth seeing.
At first again along the Adige through Roverto to Mori. From here the tour leads westward in the direction of the Lago di Garda. After a short ascent a descent follows and leads you to Torbole and to Riva. From here you go on a boat journey on the whole length of the lake to Sirmione/Desenzano.
Partly flat, partly easily hilly through the vine hills to Verona, a city full of places of interest: festival arena, Julia`s house, old city walls, roman bridge, Scaglieri palace and so much more.
Today is the longest stage on the program. At first flat and then through the hills of "Monti Berici", the excursion region of Vicenza, with a beautiful view over the city. In the old part of town one can still feel the spirit of Palladio, the famous architect from the Middle Ages. If you want to cut the stage a little shorter, you can take the train for the first kilometers.
Numerous Venetian villas are located at the exit of Vicenza, such as for example the Villa Rotonda. Along the Bacchiglione the way leads to Abano Terme/Montegrotto, one of Italy’s famous spas, as the destination of the stage. The short stage allows an excursion to Padova, the city of Saint Antonius, that can be easily reached from Abano by bus. If you prefer to relax enjoy the thermal springs.
Usually supported by the light wind you bike easily along the Brenta Canal in the direction to the mediterranian sea. Fields and meadows set the tone of the landscape. The destination of the stage is located in or near to Marghera/Mestre on the mainland before Venice with good bus connections to the lagoon city.
Your beautiful cycle tour ends today. Thanks to the good train connections to Bolzano (duration approx. 3.5 hours), you can quickly get back to the starting point of your journey. Or you can extend your journey in Venedig. Please note that it is not possible to take your own bikes on the train.
