tour description

Grappa, ice cream and gondoliers

In between sun and sea, the Alps and the Adria, this bike trip leads you to the most beautiful sights of Northern Italy. Easy, flat stages, the delicacies of the Italian kitchen, regional culinary specials (pasta, grappa, prosecco), wonderful history and culture guarantee a great pleasure!

1. day Arriving in Vicenza

There are three airports within 60 km (Venice, Verona, Treviso). The hotel is situated in the city centre. Free parking facilities are available and the bikes will be handed over at the hotel.

2. day Vicenza - Bassano del Grappa 40 km

Saying goodbye to the magnificent centre of Vicenza is hard. With the wind in your back and the sun in your hair you will cycle towards a famous place. Here, where southern flair and the austere charm of the foothills of the Alps meet, the world famous Grappa has been distilled ever since the 18th century and the most beautiful Majolika products have been produced.

3. day Bassano del Grappa - Treviso 60 km

Today neat bike trails will guide you through the Prosecco vineyards. Visit Asolo, one of the most beautiful places of the Veneto with great palazzi and bourgeois houses dating from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Baroque. Then marvel at Villa Barbaro, the most magnificent villa of Palladios, before reaching Treviso with its endless number of canals.

4. day Treviso - Venice Mestre 40 km

Easily you will follow the little Sille river today. Keep your camera ready to take pictures of the sunken wooden wrecks of the Burci boats you will pass on your way. An impressive experience of an untouched nature! You will reach your hotel in Mestre or Marghera early so that there will still be enough time for a trip to Venice (about 10 minutes from here by train).

5. day Venice Mestre - Chioggia 35 km

By bike and ship you will reach the islands of Lido and Pellestrina, situated between lagoon and the open sea. Look forward to Lido, Venice’ 12 km long beach! Here is where Europe’s Hautevolee used to meet in luxurious residences at the turn of the century, where the famous movie “Death in Venice” was produced and where the International Film Festivals take place annually. Pellestrina on the other hand leaves a very modest impression with its small wooden houses. The evening will be spent in the picturesque fishing village of Chioggia – Venice’ little sister.

6. day Chioggia - Padua (thermal area) 55 km

Today you will follow the idyllic banks of the Brenta- canal, seamed by more than 150 rural residences and villas in the 16th century. Many of the have fallen into ruins today, but visiting the famous Villa Pisani is an absolute must! Don’t get lost in the maze, as Padua, the most beautiful town of Northern Italy, awaits you now.

7. day Padua (thermal area) - Vicenza 50 km

By the foot of the Berici mountains you will ride through Costozza, to the Palladio Villa Rotonda, and to Villa Valmarana ai Nani with great frescos by Tiepolo.

8. day Departure from Vicenza

Today after breakfast your wonderful tour ends in Vicenza in the hotel.

tour highlights

Duomo di Vicenza

The cathedral of Vicenza was built in the 15th century on the foundations of three earlier churches. Despite severe war damages from the Second World War, the Gothic facade was reconstructed again – the beautiful dome is unmistakably a work of Palladio himself.

Duomo di Vicenza

Teatro Olimpico Vicenza

The Teatro Olimpico is the first indoor theater in masonry in the world, with interiors made of wood, stucco and plaster. It was constructed by architect Andrea Palladio between 1580 and 1585 when it was inaugurated. It is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Teatro Olimpico Vicenza

Basilica of Saint Anthony Padova

The Pontifical Basilica of Saint Anthony, which the people of Padua call Il Santo (The Saint), is the most important monument in the city and one of the world’s most important art treasures. Recognised by the Holy See as an International Shrine, it is also one of Christendom’s most
celebrated and popular churches.

Basilika Padua

Basilica San Marco and Campanile Venice

To build St. Mark’s Church, Venice brought the spiritual and material heritage of Byzantium to the West.
The Greek cross plan stands on a structure which in the longitudinal nave has basilica architectural motifs: the vertical arm of the cross is greater than those of the transepts and the altar is in the apse area. Above the cross are five cupolas, according to the eastern model, as a symbol of God’s presence.
Organisation of the space is rich in evocations that are not found in other Byzantine churches. The interior has a unitary sequence subdivided into individual spatial orchestrations to which gold background mosaics ensure continuity and the church’s special way of being.

Basilica San Marco

Doge's Palace Venice

A masterpiece of Gothic architecture, the Doge’s Palace is an impressive structure composed of layers of building elements and ornamentation, from its 14th and 15th century original foundations to the significant Renaissance and opulent Mannerist adjunctions. The structure is made up of three large blocks, incorporating previous constructions. The wing towards the St. Mark’s Basin is the oldest, rebuilt from 1340 onwards. The wing towards St. Mark’s Square was built in its present form from 1424 onwards. The canal-side wing, housing the Doge’s apartments and many government offices, dates from the Renaissance and was built between 1483 and 1565.

Doge´s Palace Venice

Murano

Murano is rich in history and much of it is to do with the glass industry. Find out how glassmaking came to the island, its ups and downs and some stories about the foundries over the centuries.

Murano

Canal Grande Venice

The Grand Canal originally served as a port channel for the Lagoon Shipping and as a waterway for the transport of goods. When the port function was taken over by the San Marco basin, the aspiring nobility began to build representative residences on the canal. Between the fifteenth and the eighteenth centuries, along the Grand Canal, palaces were created that reflect the whole repertoire of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. With the fall of the Republic, the Grand Canal lost its function as a boulevard.

Canal Grande

Pellestrina

Pellestrina is a small, fishermen-inhabited island that is more than 10km long, like the Lido, but much narrower. Here you can find vegetable gardens, old inns where traditional fish cicchetti are eaten and fishing boats lined up on the shore close by, small, colorful little houses that seem to have fallen out of time suggesting that the relationship between man and lagoon and fishing is still alive Agriculture is determined.

Pellestrina

Corso Andrea Palladio Vicenza

Corso Andrea Palladio is the main axis around which the city has developed over the centuries. There are art treasures, palaces and churches from all eras to bury. Coming from Piazza Castello in the west, on the left in the Stradella dei Filippini, the church of Santa Maria e San Cristoforo from the second half of the 15th century. At number 47 of the Corso there is a Gothic facade of the 15th century Palazzo Thiene to admire a four-arched pointed arch loggia with preselected balcony.

Corso Andrea Palladio

Bassano del Grappa

The Grappa del Bassano is the result of a centuries-old tradition and one of the city's most important landmarks. The grappa tradition of Bassano was born in 1779 by the passion of a local entrepreneurial family. Soon the liquor distilling in Bassano was refined into art, which over time produced a great variety of Grappa types. Grappa from Bassano is today exported all over the world and is of such importance to the city that it has even dedicated its own museum, which is located in palazzo near the wooden bridge.

Bassano del Grappa

Villa Valmarie ai Nani

Villa Valmarana ai Nani consists of three buildings, the Palazzina (owner's residence) built in 1669, the Foresteria (guesthouse) and the Scuderia (stables) from 1720. They are surrounded by a large historic park with rose gardens, a 'giardino all'italiana with its open-air theater and a fountain, a lane with double hornbeams that ends with a Neptune statue. The villa takes its name from the statues of the 17 stone dwarves, who were originally set up in the garden and are now on the walls around the house, inspiring the legend of the villa over Princess Layana. The Valmarana family still lives in the villa.
