Day 1: Individual Arrival in Bolzano

Take time to discover the capital of Southern Tyrol with its impressive Cathedral of the Assumption. Stroll through the town's arcades, the most important streets in the Old Town which cut through it from East to West or visit one of the numerous museums. The Archaeological museum of Southern Tyrol is particularly recommended as it houses the famous natural human mummy of Oetzi, the iceman.

Day 2: Bolzano – Trento, approx. 70 km

Today's route along the Adige Cycle Path leads you through extensive vineyards. Cycling though the typical Southern Tyrolean villages of Ora and Egna, you will reach Salurn. This is where the German-speaking region of Tyrol ends. You will then continue on towards Trento where you shouldn't miss the Old Town with its Romanesque Cathedral and the Baroque Neptune Fountain. Stroll along Via Belenzani with its beautiful old buildings.

Day 3: Trento – Lake Garda South region, approx. 50 km + boat trip

Today you will cycle along the Adige, whose valley becomes increasingly narrow. Cycling along the old trading routes, you will come to Rovereto, which was once famous as a silk manufacturing town. The Old Town is perfect for strolling through with its numerous lane-ways and palaces. Afterwards you will cycle on towards Riva and board a boat which will transport you to your destination.

Day 4: Lake Garda South region – Verona, approx. 50 km

Accompanied by the Adige, you will cycle towards Verona, the capital town of the province of the same name. Stroll along the river through the picturesque Old Town of Verona or wonder in awe at the Roman amphitheatre Arena di Verona, which is famous for its operatic festivals. Numerous religious buildings such as the Santa Maria Matricolare Cathedral or the small church of Santa Maria Antica from the 8th century await your visit.

Day 5: Verona – Vicenza, approx. 70 km

Today’s route starts off quite flat before reaching the Berici Hills. If today’s route is too long you also have the option of taking the train in San Bonifacio. The Old Town of Vicenza is characterised by impressive buildings by the famous architect Andrea Palladio from the 16th century. The Teatro Olimpico, the first post-antique free-standing theatre building in Europe is also one of his works.

Day 6: Category B: Vicenza – Abano Terme, approx. 35 km
Category A and K: Vicenza – Padua, approx. 45 km

Cycling along streets lined with villas, you will leave Vicenza and arrive in one of the most famous bathing spa towns in Italy. Treat yourself and use the time for a long visit to the thermal baths or visit Padua, one of the oldest cities in Italy (which can be easily reached by bus). Here you should visit the famous Basilica of St. Anthony.

Day 7: Category B: Abano Terme – Venice-Mestre / Marghera, approx. 50 km
Category A and K: Padua – Venice-Mestre / Marghera, approx. 40 km

With the light breeze, which is common in this area, at your back you will cycle towards the sea. Your destination for the day is the mainland near Venice. From here there are excellent connections to the lagoon city, which has been on the UNESCO world heritage list since 1987. Explore the imposing St. Mark’s Cathedral and visit the Gothic Doge's Palace. A trip with a gondola is a very special way to explore the city.

Day 8: Individual return journey home or extension

After breakfast your cycling tour along the Adige Cycle Route from Bolzano to Venice comes to an end. You will then return home or to Bolzano. We would also be more than happy to extend your stay in the Venice region.
