Self-guided 8-day Lake Reschen to Verona Tour

On Adige cycle path to the South

A small balcony that had a big impact. Two young people in love till the death. Live the story in the historic town of Verona. Where Shakespeare’s tragedy ‘Romeo and Juliet’ was set is your final destination. In Reschen you hop onto the bike and start peddling. Over eight days you will cycle through a Mediterranean landscape, grape-hung vineyards and numerous orchards. At every stop there is another delicacy to try!

Details of the cycle tour from Lake Reschen to Verona

When Germany gradually changes into Italy you have arrived in the ‘real’ South Tyrol. Take the bike along the Adige to Schlanders, Merano, Bolzano, Trento and Riva Over. These towns are definitely worth a pit stop. There are plenty of freshly harvested fruit and vegetables there. Once you’ve arrived in Verona, it’s time to put your feet up. After a short break, the search for the best ‘gelato’ commences. Tipp: Try a daring ice cream flavour. How about fig caramel in ice cream parlour Gelateria Ballini on Piazza San Tomaso? Tuck in and enjoy!
