Brenner Pass to Venice Cycling

  • Breathtaking views and variety of landscapes as you cycle from the mountains to the sea
  • Stay in Verona, the birthplace of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and Vicenza, renowned for classical Palladio architecture
  • Renaissance architecture and waterside palaces in Venice.

A wonderful bike tour through ever-changing scenery takes you from the mountainous Austrian border at the Brenner Pass to finish on the medieval streets of Venice on the Adriatic: your route starts mainly downhill through ancient villages and the green meadows of South Tyrol and continues along the Adige River into the Veneto region to arrive at the sparkling shores of Lake Garda. Further on you will discover Verona, the town of Romeo & Juliet, with its impressive Roman arena, and Vicenza full of classical Palladian architecture. Then you will reach the rolling Euganean Hills and their renowned thermal district, the largest in Europe; beautiful Padua, cradle of arts, will lead you to the Venetian lagoon.

There are plenty of opportunities for breaks along the way to explore Baroque castles, ornate cathedrals and mountain fortresses and stop for snacks amid beautiful scenery. Each of the medieval villages, historic market towns and cities you visit are different, from the 1100-year-old town of Bressanone with its cobbled streets and arcades to the wine village of Ora, surrounded by vineyards and apple orchards; the ancient Roman remains, museums and palazzi of Trento and Padua with its vast 13th Century Basilica of St Anthony, all culminating at the World Heritage city of Venice on the Adriatic coast.

Day 1: Arrive in Bolzano

Arrive in Bolzano, capital of the South Tyrol.

Day 2: Brenner Pass to Bressanone 55km/34.5mi

A transfer takes you to the Brenner Pass, on the border with Austria from where your cycle route starts. Cycle along an old train line into the green Isarco Valley and to the medieval village of Vipiteno. Continue through pretty villages and green meadows to Fortezza, where you will see the ancient fort, built at the time of the Austrian empire. Continue to Lake Varna, a protected nature reserve before reaching Bressanone, dominated by its ornate 18th century baroque cathedral.
Breakfast included

Day 3: Bressanone to Bolzano 45km/28.5mi

The Isarco River leads you out of Bressanone. The cycle tracks today hug the river, at times you are almost above the river, as you meander along the edge. Take time to stop in impressive Chiusa, a medieval town with narrow streets and little art and craft shops. Standing above the town on a rocky-outcrop is the impressive Castel Sabbiona, a Benedictine monastery. Criss-cross the river on cycle tracks before heading into Bolzano.
Breakfast included

Day 4: Bolzano to Trento 65km/41mi or 70km/44mi

Today you will mainly cycle alongside the Adige River, on the Wine Route through a landscape of orchards and vineyards. Stop on route in the villages of Ora, Egna and Salorno. Scenic pathways lead onward to Trento, set in a wide glacial valley guarded by the towering peaks of the Dolomites.
Breakfast included

Day 5: Trento to Lake Garda 50km/31.5mi

Your route continues along the Adige to reach Rovereto. Ascend to the Passo di San Giovanni to enjoy fabulous views to Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy. Descend towards the lake and take the ferry to the southern shore to stay in either Peschiera or Desenzano.
Breakfast included

Day 6: Lake Garda to Verona 35km/22mi

Cycle through open countryside to reach today's destination, Verona. Visit the 1st century Roman Arena, one of the largest in Italy and which still hosts concerts and the Opera Festival. Stroll below Juliet's house with its honey coloured stone balcony and ascend the Torre dei Lamberti for views across the city.
Breakfast included

Day 7: Verona to Vicenza 35km/22mi or 70km/44mi

Your route today takes you though vineyards and to the castle of Soave before reaching the Berici hills. Reach Vicenza where the old city centre is characterized by the beautiful private palaces and public buildings by Andrea Palladio, the famous 16th century architect. It is possible to shorten the stage by taking the train in San Bonifacio.
Breakfast included

Day 8: Vicenza to the Padua Thermal District 50km/31.5mi

Leaving Vicenza you will come first to the Palladian Villa Rotonda and its gardens. Cycling along the Bacchiglione river, the route continues towards the scenic landscape of the Euganean hills, the biggest European thermal resort.
Breakfast included

Pedal along the Battaglia Canal to Padua where the university dates to 1222. Follow the Piovego canal, and then the Brenta Canal past ancient villas to Mestre, Venice's mainland. Check-in to your hotel and then head out to visit the 'Floating City'.
