Venice lands Self-guided Cycling Tour Villas and Prosecco

Cycling this sophisticated corner of Italy is a real pleasure: admire the elegant villas of the Venetian nobility, scattered in the whole region... discover Vicenza, architect Palladio’s personal “showcase” and part of the World Heritage List since 1994... taste a typical “grappa” in Bassano, famous also for its covered wooden bridge... cycle the Prosecco vineyards between Asolo and Treviso... explore the timeless fascination of Venice by foot and by water... take a walk in the charming Chioggia, affectionately known as “Little Venice”... take a relaxing break among the hills in the largest European thermal resort... discover the city centre of Padua, home to one of the oldest Italian (and European) universities. This tour is among European classics, curling between the Alps and the Adriatic sea.
