Innsbruck to Venice 10-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 1
A wonderful bike tour starting from the Austrian border at Brennero Pass: you’ll cycle downhill through ancient villages, forts and green meadows of South Tyrol. Riding along the Adige River you’ll reach the Veneto region, with a stop at the palm-lined shores of lake Garda and then Verona, the town of Romeo & Juliet, with its impressive Roman arena. Further on you’ll discover Vicenza, renowned for the classical Palladio architecture, and Padua, home to one of the oldest Italian (and European) universities. At the end of the trip the timeless fascination of Venice will invite you to an exploration by foot and by water along its canals and small “calli”.

Innsbruck – Bressanone (55 km by bike + 40 km transfer)
A private transfer will take you to Brennero, where you’ll start cycling into the green Isarco valley. Your cycling day continues without difficulties through nice villages and green meadows till Fortezza, where you will see the ancient fort. Lake Varna awaits you for a relaxing break before you reach Bressanone.
Bressanone – Bolzano (45 km).
Continue along the same cycle path, with few kms today: you’ll have the opportunity to visit the huge Sabiona medieval monastery, built on a rocky-hill and dominating the Isarco-valley. Overnight in Bolzano.
Bolzano – Trento (65/70 km).
You will ride along the Adige River, through orchards and vineyards, passing the villages of Ora, Egna and Salorno. The dam pathways lead then to Trento.
Trento – Desenzano/Peschiera (50 km by bike + ferry).
Always pedalling along the Adige you reach Rovereto and Mori. After a short ascent, a refreshing descent will follow and lead you to Torbole and to Riva. The ferry cruise takes you to the southern part of the lake.
Desenzano/Peschiera – Verona (60/35 km).
Today you head to Verona. Worth visiting are: the Roman Arena, the Church of San Zeno and Juliet’s House.
Verona – Vicenza (75/40 km).
At first, the route starts out flat and then heads through the Monti Berici, a hilly region just south of Vicenza. The old city centre is characterized by the beautiful private palaces and public buildings by Andrea Palladio, the famous 16th century architect known all over the world. The ones who consider this stage too long can take a train from several railway stations.
Vicenza – Padova (50 km).
Cycling out of Vicenza you will come across the beautiful Palladian Villa Rotonda. Along the Bacchiglione river, the route will continue to the fascinating city of Padova with its famous Giotto’s Chapel and one of the biggest squares of Europe “Prato della Valle”.
Padova – Mestre/Venice (40 km).
You will cycle along the Brenta Canal, overlooked by the countryside villas of the ancient Venetian nobility (Villa Pisani, Malcontenta, Villa Widmann) until you reach Mestre, Venice’s mainland. You can choose to stay directly in Venice with a price supplement.
Departure after breakfast.
Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Along the way you may find temporary deviations (for example road works) which cannot be foreseen: in this case each rider can decide autonomously how to deal with these stretches.
