Italy: Veneto

Taste of Prosecco Cycling

  • Discover the UNESCO Prosecco Region, also known as the secret 'garden of Venice'
  • Taste Italy's award-winning bubbles and visit famous local producers
  • Cycling along the spectacular Prosecco Route, through the renowned 'pearl wine' vineyards
  • Explore charming medieval villages, fairy-tale castles and aristocratic villas
  • Option to stay at 3 star or 5 star hotels

Discover the Prosecco region, better known as the 'secret garden of Venice' on this 7 night, single centre cycling holiday.

Cycling is by far one of the best way to get to know this famous Italian region, framed in the north by the Alps and in the south by the river Piave plain, where green hills are covered by lush vineyards. What is waiting for you is a land full of charm, history and art, enriched by unexpected surprises bearing witness to its ancient past: fairytale castles, aristocratic villas but also typical cellars where local people are keeping alive the traditions and the pleasure of hospitality - you will absolutely need to taste their delicious local products!

In this area winemaking tradition has ancient roots: the first written evidence of Prosecco dates back to 1772 and nowadays, even though sparkling wines are widespread throughout the whole country, only the product born from these particular grapes, with its floral and fruity scent, can bring in the world the name of 'Prosecco'. From Conegliano to Valdobbiadene there are 30 kilometers of hills covered with vineyards, where tractors do not arrive and men are the protagonists of a heroic viticulture: welcome to the world of Prosecco, where the first Italian road dedicated to wine, Strada del Vino, was born in the 1960s.

You will spend 7 nights at the charming 4 star Hotel dei Chiostri, located in the historic centre of picturesque Follina and you can choose to stay on a bed and breakfast basis or upgrade to half board, with 7 evening meals taken at the hotel's restaurant, where you will be able to sample their specialities and traditional cuisine.

This trip is also available to book with 7 night stays at 3 star or 5 star hotels
