Cycling is the best way to get to know the Prosecco region; framed in the north by the Alps and in the south by the river Piave plain, where green hills are covered by lush overgrown 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 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 graves, with its floral and fruity scent, can bring in the world the name of 'Prosecco'.
Arrive at the charming town of Follina and the 4 star Hotel dei Chiostri, your accommodation for the whole duration of the holiday.
Follow the cycle route around the lakes Revine and Santa Maria towards Rolle, a beautiful village surrounded by vineyards. Enjoy your first wine tasting (included), before descending among the Prosecco vineyards to Miane.
Ride towards Vidor where you cross the river Piave, once the scene of a great battle during the WWI. Reach Asolo, a picturesque medieval village known as 'the city of a hundred horizons', with its open-air museum surrounded by ancient walls. Afterwards, towards Bassano Del Grappa to visit the Poli Grappa museum and enjoy a Grappa tasting (included) before crossing the famous wooden bridge dedicated to the Alpini troops.

Today you cycle across Prosecco hills, the very heart of Italy's pearl wine culture. Continue up towards Valdobbiadene, better known as the capital of the Prosecco, along with Conegliano and ride to Guia to sample their award-winning wine at a local winery (included). On the way back you can enjoy breath-taking views of the Santo Stefano vineyards and break at the famous Osteria senz'Oste where you can taste some of their local specialities.
Visit Treviso and have a stroll in the central square Piazza Dei Signori or the enchanted city of Venice, both of which are accessible by train from Conegliano.
Cycle to Cison Valmarino, known as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, before following the route towards the beautiful Castello of San Salvatore in Susegana. Here, enjoy wine and local produce tasting at the estates Tenute Caldella estate, owned by the former professional cyclist Flavio Vanzella, who was time trial world champion and yellow jersey at the Tour de France.
