GUIDED E-BIKE TOUR: THE VENETO CYCLING TOUR from Bolzano to Venice

Individual arrival in the bilingual city of Bozen, which rises along the river Eisack. It has always been a transshipment point between the Mediterranean and Central Europe and today an important economic and tourist center.

Overnight place: Bolzano

Today you cycle along the banks of the Adige, past the famous orchards and vineyards of the lowlands. Halfway between Bolzano and Trento you will find Salurn, the language border between the German-speaking and Italian-speaking areas of northern Italy. You can shorten the stage by taking the train in several stations.

Overnight place: Trent

The Adige accompanies you to Rovereto, the city with the famous museum of contemporary art. From there you leave the valley and cycle with a short climb to the San Giorgio pass, from where the breathtaking journey begins, which gives you a spectacular view of Lake Garda and the town of Torbole. From Riva del Garda you take the ferry towards the south of the lake.

Overnight place: Desenzano or Peschiera

After the gentle hills that surround Lake Garda, you will meet the Adige river again and together you will cycle to Verona, one of the most important cities of Veneto. A visit to the Roman Arena, the Church of San Zeno and the House of Juliet are unmissable.

Overnight place: Verona

In the hinterland of Verona you cycle along the foot of the Lessinian Mountains, where you come to the castle of Soave in the middle of the vineyards. The flat route takes you past the beautiful Romeo and Juliet castles in Montecchio Maggiore, while the hilly route takes you through the Berici hills. Vicenza, the little jewel with the buildings of Andrea Paladio, one of the most famous architects of the XNUMXth century, awaits you at the end of the day. The stage can be shortened thanks to the train station in San Bonifacio.

Overnight place: Vicenza

You leave Vicenza and cycle along the cycle path along the Bacchiglione, where you can marvel at the beautiful Villa Rotonda, Palladio's masterpiece. After the village of Montegalda, you head towards the Euganean Hills, where a relaxing end awaits you in a resort in one of the largest thermal areas in Europe.

Overnight place: Padua

Along the bike path that flanks the Battaglia canal, you will cross the university city of Padua, rich in art and history. Along the Piovego Canal you will then reach Stra and further along the Brenta River you will pass some of the most famous villas of the Venetian nobility (Villa Pisani, Villa Malcontenta, Villa Widmann) before reaching Mestre, the mainland of Venice.

From Bolzano to Venice

The hotels should be within walking distance of the city centres. That was only partly the case. The hotels waren except for one (Puccini am Gardasee) good to very good.
- Neidhardt, Herbert


hot, hotter, bike tour Bolzano-Venice

We're back from a strenuous, but largely wonderful tour. During the introduction to Bolzano, details of the tour were pointed out. The entire route is signposted with countless small black stickers with a green arrow, which then had to be looked for and observed. Sometimes the route was a bit idiosyncratic, e.g. cycle paths on the left side of the road against the direction of travel, routes over large, confusing intersections but mostly off the streets and in the first part of the tour mostly along the Etsch. The crossing on Lake Garda turned out to be a bit long at 5 hours. The hotels waren great, three even with a pool. An extra night in Verona is recommended. We used it for an extensive stroll through the city and an evening visit to the opera. Additional nights in Mestre are also recommended. From here you can easily take the bus to Venice. The day or multi-day ticket is also a ticket for the Vaporetto. We got along very well with the map material. The tour book with the very detailed directions can be used to read more about problems. However, we noticed that the English and German versions have minor differences. You are asked to drive to the right of the river or to the left of the river. We rode our own bikes, fellow travelers waren but very satisfied with the rental bikes. However, we would have liked to have received the travel documents (tour book and directions) before the trip and not in Bolzano. Our conclusion: Recommended but strenuous at 38-39°C throughout

Cycling in the mountains is particularly appealing

Instead of 280 km waren it's 345 km - that was a shock and I wouldn't have done the tour with children, but maybe with young people. So that was a sporty tour and therefore little time in the individual cities. So we will go there again - at least to Padua. You should take out the restaurant recommendation in Trento "La Cantinota". We met everyone who followed your recommendation at the restaurant across the street, which was extremely nice and delicious. The organization was very good, the suitcase transport, the maps (excellent), the return transport. the hotels waren very different, although we didn't like the "Venezia" in Trento in terms of the facilities (the door doesn't close) and the breakfast. We particularly liked the Albergo San Raffaele in Vincenza. Great location, very warm, nice staff and a really quiet location with a great view over the city - especially an experience. Overall, the route was very well signposted and the meticulous map was unnecessary. We enjoyed getting cakes, bread and drinks from the bakers along the route. Tasty and cheap. In Mestre we recommend the "Officina des gusto" at the back of the Hotel Venizia. Very good cuisine. Cycling is just nice - even if we couldn't take shelter in the rain because there are no bus shelters and the property is fenced off. Venice in the constant rain also had something, not everyone experiences it! But that's how it is. Overall, it was a very nice trip with only one flat tire.

Wonderful bike ride!

Four of us went on the Bolzano - Venice bike tour in August 2014 with our own bikes and waren very excited. The route is easy to find using the map handed out and the arrows along the way (only a few were missing). The hotels in the cheaper category waren Consistently good, as was the breakfast. The luggage transport worked fine. Only the "introductory event" in Bolzano was a bit uncoordinated. Here the participants of different tours were informed together by a supervisor - unfortunately a bit short and uncoordinated. We would still recommend this tour and would certainly like to do another one ourselves.
-Birgit Biedermann


It couldn't be better

Dear Mecklenburger, a really wonderful cycling week is behind us, we are very satisfied. You could drive the entire tour according to the signs, so you hardly had to consult the very good documents. The stage length and the quarters waren very well coordinated with each other. Small points of criticism: The ship's departure time from Lake Garda was incorrect (15:35 p.m. instead of 15:00 p.m.). The half hour later meant there was little time for small shopping after arriving in Decenziano. A note about the very poor catering on board the ferry with a four-hour journey would have been very helpful. Especially since there was enough time in Riva to prepare. The breakfast at the Hotel Albermonaco in Trento was unfortunately the worst of the tour; the coffee machine alone was an imposition. This waren but already the negative sides. Overall we felt very comfortable, a special highlight was the Hotel Elite in Mestre, ideal starting point for Venice, great connection by public transport. We will gladly book a tour again.
