Usually you cycle along the Àdige, partly through the orchards to Salurn, where the German speaking South Tyrol comes to an end. The dam pathways lead to Trento (the old part of town is worth seeing).
Your path leads you along the Àdige through Roverto to Mori. From here the tour leads westward in the direction of the Lake Garda. After a short ascent a descent follows and leads you via the lake to Torbole and to Riva. From here you go on a boat journey on the whole length of the lake to Sirmione/Desenzano.
Partly flat, partly easily hilly through the vine hills to Verona, a city full of places of interest (festival arena, Julia’s house, old city walls).
Today is the longest stage on the program for the single tour Flat and then through the hill of “Monti Berici”, the excursion region of Vicenza, with a beautiful view of the city. In the old part of town one can still feel the ghost of Palladio, the famous architect from the middle Ages.
Numerous Venetian villas are located at the exit of Vicenza, such as for example the Villa Rotonda. Along the Bacchiglione the way leads to Abano Terme one of Italy’s famous spas, as the destination of the stage. Padua is the city of Saint Antonius and scholars. The town is easily be reached by bus. The short stage allows enough time to enjoy the thermal springs.
Usually supported by the light wind one bikes easily through the Veneto in the direction of the sea. Fields and meadows set the tone of the landscape. The destination of the stage is located in or near to Marghera/Mestre on the mainland before Venice with good bus connections to the lagoon city.
You can combine this tour with Innsbruck – Bolzano or Venice – Florence.
The route is flat as far as easily hilly; the only strenuous part is the Monti Berici. The first two stages are predominantly on bicycle paths, southern and eastern from Lake Garda you cycle mostly on economy paths and side roads. As a result of missing bicycle paths there are a few, short sections on streets with heavy traffic. You are cycling on almost continuous asphalted ways.
