This beautiful tour offers you mountain scenery, green landscapes and gently flowing rivers. From the Austrian border through the Italian South Tyrol you will cycle along quiet and beautiful routes, past peaceful villages and picturesque little castles and cloisters. Highlight of the tour is a boat excursion on the Lake Garda, where you will enjoy this impressive expanse of water from a really unique perspective. At the end of the tour you’ll reach the fascinating Verona, the town of Romeo & Juliet, with its imposing Roman arena or the enchanting Renaissance town of Mantua, once a City State ruled by the Gonzaga family, who attracted many imprtant artists of that time
Mainly along flat roads with only a few rolling parts. The region of South Tyrol is provided with an excellently built cycle lanes system. You can ride almost exclusively on well planned, traffic free cycle lanes, part of which run along the Adige banks. Towards Lake Garda there is a bit more challenging climb to face
