Slow Tours offers a number of other Cycling Tours in Europe
Desenzano/Peschiera – Verona (60/35 km).
Today you head to Verona. With the Adige crossing it, this is one of the most important and beautiful cities in the Veneto region. Worth visiting are: the Roman Arena, the Church of San Zeno and Juliet’s House.
Verona – Ilasi/Soave (30/40 km).
The stage is flat and relaxing, crossing beautiful vineyards and the countryside. Your cycle route will join the “Strada del Vino” (wine road) that leads to Illasi/ Soave, a very famous area full of vineyards and nice medieval sights.
Illasi/Soave – Vicenza (50/40 km).
At first, the route starts out flat and then heads through the Colli Berici, a hilly region just south of Vicenza, with a wonderful view of the city. 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.
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).
The tour continues easily through the flat Veneto. 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.
