Itinerary

The hotel is on the mainland before Venice and has excellent bus links to the iconic lagoon city. Not far from Marcus square, at the beginning of your tour, you can enjoy a little Grappa tasting session.

In the morning, there will be a tour briefing. You will then begin your riding with a cycle on the bike path over the Liberty Bridge to Venice. Afterwards, you will take the ferry to Lido, before riding, via Pellestrina, to Chioggia, on a ride where you can enjoy stunning views of the sea. Chioggia is  a quiet, traditional town, reminiscent of the Venetian naval supremacy. Here you can rest in one of the typical fish restaurants. Tonight, you will stay in Chioggia/Sottomarina, where you will find a wide sandy beach.

Today, you will cycle back to the river Adige, on quiet roads, which will lead you through fertile fields, melon plantations, and tranquil villages to Adria. This small, friendly city is packed with charm.Because of its proximity to the rivers Adige and Po, and the quiet, narrow streets, with cosy cafes, and friendly people, this city, founded by the Etruscans attracts many visitors.

You will cycle a short part of today’s route along the longest river in Italy, the river Po. Then, one of its branches, called Po di Goro, will lead you right through its delta towards the sea. Perhaps you want to cool off in the Adriatic Sea before you get to the charming town of Comacchio? Magnificent palazzi, ornate churches, and numerous bridges still bear witness of the prosperity once gained by salt production.

The first half of today is dedicated to discovering the “Delta del Po” natural park, with its unique flora and fauna. As you ride along a dam, you will feel as if you are cycling straight through the water, while you see flamingos nesting only a few metres away. A short ferry ride (tickets not included in the tour price, about € 2)will bring you to the Adriatic Sea. You will see bright, wide beaches on the way to Ravenna, where you will be enchanted by the art and culture of the port city.

Soon, the landscape changes, as the foothills of the Apennines form gently rolling hills. Earlier, on the edge of the vast plains, you will reach Faenza; an enchanting little city, famous for its production of ceramics. The artists will be happy to let you watch while they are painting the artefacts. From here, it is not far to Brisighella, an idyllic, medieval village, overlooked by the Rocca Veneziana and the Torre Orologgio. Tranquillity and pure relaxation await.

A wonderful train journey, through the wild mountain world of the Apennines, begins the day, and will take you to Borgo San Lorenzo. Today, you will cycle up two short climbs. Your reward will be a fantastic descent via Fiesole to Florence, the history-charged and absolutely iconic capital of Tuscany.

This tour can be combined with the tours: Bolzano – Venice, Florence – Rome, or Tuscany.

Route overview

Difficulty: Moderate

You cycle to and from the bakery, but only when the sun is shining. Cycling has to be fun and is not a method of fitness in your eyes. Nevertheless, gentle hills or longer sections on gravel tracks don’t pose any problems for you. You pedal along enjoying the lovely views in the countryside as you go.

 

Until the fifth day, you will cycle on flat terrain. On the sixth day, the route will lead over three to four small hills. On the seventh day, there will be two short climbs and a long descent. You will cycle on dams, farm tracks, and side roads with little traffic. Only very short sections have to be cycled on roads with more traffic. Nearly all of the roads are asphalted. A bike tour for everyone!

Total distance cycled: 305 km
