Lake Reschen - Venice | Sporty

Bike tour Italy till Venice

Light-footed pedalling donwhill to the south

Whether spring, summer, or autumn, the southern slopes of the Alps are worth a visit by bike from the time of the first blossoms to harvest time. Regardless of whether you love nature or culture, this tour has to offer just the right thing for everyone! The castles along the way and the great culture in the different towns will inspire those who are interested. Just as the orchards and vineyards, the magnificent mountain panoramas, the fresh air and the unspoiled nature along the beautifully landscaped paths make every cyclist’s heart leap for joy. And then eventually, you will see the sea. Venice. The town built on poles. Lord Byron once wrote, “I saw from out the wave of her structure’s rise, as from the stroke of the enchanter’s wand: A thousand years their cloudy wings expand around me”. Venice will also bewitch you. And yet the journey will be your goal!

Itinerary

By car or by train and bus to Resia (mountain pass) and further to Resia.

 

Please note

From April to mid-May there is a overnight stay in Silandro instead of Resia, transfer from Silandro to Resia is organized. 

Today you will cycle alongside Lake Resia with a great view of the sunken church of Graun until you reach the medieval village of Glurns (perfectly preserved medieval city walls). Silandro, the capital of the famous Venostrais only one village you will come through. On your way you will come across some pretty castles (mountaineer Reinhold Messner’s castle Juval) and you will get marvellous views of the impressive mountain massif Ortlermassiv and the mountain pass Stilfserjoch whilst you are rolling down on your bike into the tranquil Merano with its Mediterranean vegetation.

Today’s stage will take you via Lana (Schnatterpeck Altar) and through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolean Wine Road, past many fortresses, castles, and ruins such as Hocheppan (famous frescos), to Lake Caldaro. You will stay overnight in the cosy wine town, Ora. You will cycle mostly along the river Adige, and partly through orchards to Salorno, where the German speaking South Tyrol ends. The famous Trentino vineyards are located next to the dam ways. These ways lead you to Trento with its lovely old town, cathedral and castle Buonconsiglio.

First, you will continue cycling along the Adige through Rovereto and on to Mori from where the route leads westwards towards Lake Garda. In Mori you will taste the world’s famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After a short ascent (Passo San Giovanni), you will descend down to the lake and to Torbole and further on to Riva. From here, a boat will take you down the entire length of the lake.

Today's bike tour leads on lonely paths, through vines, peach trees and kiwi plantations to Solferino. The place where Garibaldi united Italy in the famous “Battle of Solferino”. Partly flat and partly hilly, the route will take you through the vineyards on to Verona, a town full of sights (the Festival Arena, Juliet’s house, the old town walls).

Today’s route is initially flat and then you will cycle through the Monti Berici hills to the excursion area of Vicenza, with a beautiful view over the city. To make this longer stage a bit shorter, you can also travel the first part by train to San Bonifacio. In the old town of Vicenza, you can feel the spirit of Palladio, the famous architect from the Middle Ages.

On leaving Vicenza, you will see numerous Venetian villas, such as the Villa Rotonda. The route along the river Bacchiglione leads to Abano Terme, one of the famous Italian spa towns. With a light wind behind you most of the time, it’s an easy ride towards the sea.  The landscape is full of meadows and fields. This stage will take you to the mainland before Venice, with its excellent bus service into the city of lagoons. At the end of your tour, not far from Marcus square, you can look forward to a little Grappa tasting session!

The tour can also be combined with the Adige cycle path, as well as the “Venice to Florence” tour.

Tour character

You will ride on beautiful bike paths mainly along the Adige River. The route will lead you from Reschenpass (mountain pass) almost 1,500 metres in altitude downhill to Lake Garda. However, you will have to cycle up some small climbs too. Overall, you will find yourself on beautiful bike paths and asphalted country roads. Unfortunately, moderate traffic is unavoidable on some short connecting roads.
