From Lake Garda to Venice, by bike

8 days, 7 nights - easy path (40-60 km per day)


The route crosses Veneto region from the West to the East, passing though many Unesco heritage sites, historic cities and villas. 
The bike itinerary starts by the water of Lake Garda and reaches the beautiful roman Verona.
Than goes to Vicenza, rich of beautiful building designed by the famous architect Andrea Palladio, and Treviso, a old city crossed by romantic canals, but also in the towns of Montagnana, surrounded by high medieval walls and built at the foot of the Euganean Hills; Bassano del Grappa, overlooked by high mountains and crossed by Brenta River, and Lido di Venezia, an island of the lagoon with a great view over Venezia.
 
The itinerary skirts the Berici Hills, the Prealps and the hills of Asolo, beautiful areas where you can find lush nature, old villages and elegant villas. Getting to Venice is exciting: after a great ride along the Sile river, we cross San Giuliano Park in Mestre, where you can enjoy a fantastic view over the city, and we reach the old town cycling on the 4 km-long Ponte della Libertà, the only bridge that links Venice to the mainland.
Then, we get to the island of Lido on a ferry-boat: by the water we admire the beautiful buildings of the city, San Marco’s Belltower and the elegant Palazzo Ducale. Finally, we explore the small island of Lido and Pellestrina.
