Self-guided 8-day Bolzano to Venice Cycling Tour

From the Mountains to the Sea

Charming valleys and enchanting towns, mountain landscapes and, of course, the Grand Canal. All this awaits you on your cycle tour across South Tyrol to the Adriatic Sea. The motto of this route is “experience and enjoy”. The path leads past dreamy vineyards and through picturesque cities. A glass of red wine, antipasti and the original Italian tiramisu provide the culinary enjoyment during well-deserved breaks.

The details of Bolzano to Venice:

If you are a pleasure seeker and culture lover, you have reason to celebrate: on a cycling trip to the lagoon city, you will find everything your heart desires. The starting point of the tour is South Tyrol’s capital, Bolzano. From there you cycle over rolling hills, through culturally rick cities and pass impressive landscapes. Short detours and pauses are planned in Trento, Riva on Lake Garda, Verona, Vicenza and Abano. You always have the goal in mind! After seven days, you will reach the majestic lagoon city of Venice. And that’s not all: St Mark’s Square, a gondola ride on the Grand Canal and the cities unique charm make for a grand finale to the journey.

Highlights of the cycle tour at a glance:

  • Boat trip on Lake Garda: Enjoy the rolling waves and the pleasant sea breeze on board. From Riva you can kick pack and relax. You sail across Lake Garda to Desenzano or Sirmione, from where the next leg of the tour will take you to Verona.
  • Casa di Giulietta: So much is clear: Romeo and Juliet are probably the best-known lovers in literature. In Verona you can experience the charming old town with its winding streets and be inspired by Shakespeare’s play directly at the ‘Casa di Giulietta’.
  • Venice: If you had to describe the lagoon city in three words, they would be: beauty, charm, history. What awaits you in the floating city? St Mark’s Basilica, the Rialto Bridge, the Doge’s Palace and much more!

Useful information about the Italian tour:

You are on the saddle for a total of eight days, heading towards Venice. The tour difficulty level is simple, and ideal for leisure cyclists. Between 45 and 70 kilometres are scheduled daily. The gentle hills and flat cycle paths mean you have time left to enjoy the dreamlike landscape.

The first two stages are mainly cycle paths and to the south and east of Lake Garda mostly service and side roads.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Bolzano

    Welcome briefing and bike fitting.

  • Day 2

    Bolzano - Trento approx. 70km

    You will pedal along beautiful cycle paths beside the river Adige, partly through orchards, to Salorno where the German speaking Tyrol ends. The pathways along a dam lead right to Trento (picturesque old town).

  • Day 3

    Trento - Lake Garda South approx. 50km + boat trip

    First, you will continue to cycle along the Adige, through Rovereto and on to Mori from where the tour leads westwards towards Lake Garda. After a short ascent, you will descend down to the lake to Torbole and further on to Riva. From here, a boat trip will then take you down the entire length of the lake.

  • Day 4

    Lake Garda South - Verona approx. 50km

    Partly flat, partly slightly hilly, the route will take you through the vineyards on to Verona, a town full of sights (the Festival Arena, Juliet’s house, the old town walls).

  • Day 5

    Verona - Vicenza approx. 70km

    Today’s route is initially flat and then you will cycle through the Monti Berici hills to the excursion area of Vicenza, with a beautiful view over the city. To make this longer stage a bit shorter, you can also travel the first part by train to San Bonifacio. In the old town of Vicenza you can feel the spirit of Palladio, the famous architect from the Middle Ages.

  • Day 6

    Vicenza - Abano Terme/Padua approx. 35 - 45km

    On leaving Vicenza, you will see numerous Venetian villas, such as the Villa Rotonda. The route along the river Bacchiglione leads to Abano Terme, one of the famous Italian spa towns. From Abano Terme, you can easily travel by bus to Padua, the city of St Anthony and the scholars. There you will have enough time to enjoy the thermal baths. If you are culturally-minded, you can enjoy Padua overnight for an additional charge!

  • Day 7

    Abano Terme/Padua - Venice/Mestre/Marghera approx. 50/40km

    With a light wind behind you most of the time, it’s an easy ride towards the sea. The landscape is full of meadows and fields. This stage will take you to the mainland before Venice, with its excellent bus service into the city of lagoons.

  • Day 8

    Departure or extended visit to Mestre
