Cycling holidays in and around Venice
Veneto extends from the Dolomites in the north to the Po valley in the south . In the south west, in Venice, this impressive region's coastline meets the Adriatic. The coast is a popular holiday destination. But not just the long sandy beaches around Venice are worth seeing: the mostly flat landscape is perfect for some easy-going cycling. Cycle at a leisurely pace along the Etsch or Piave rivers, through orchards and vineyards.
In addition to the popular types of local wine, you must try a Prosecco - which comes from this region. On your holiday you'll have enough time to explore the famous towns in the area surrounding Venice. Follow the traces of Romeo and Juliet in Verona, admire the pilgrimage church of St Antonius in Padua and the magnificent villas and palaces in Vicenza. On tours in and around Venice, the city of Venice - La Serenissima - should not just be a mere town on your route but an integral part and a real highlight of each cycling holiday. Let your day come to a pleasant close over a typically Italian meal with risotto or polenta.Show more Show less
