Across Veneto Region and its Cities of art – guided tour
From Verona, the City of Love, to Venice, the most unique city in the world.
The itinerary winds through vineyards, medieval villages, Venetian Villas, cities of art as Vicenza, Bassano del Grappa and Treviso, flanking lush hills and following bike paths along calm rivers.
The route crosses Veneto region from the West to the East, passing though many Unesco heritage sites, historic cities and villas.
You overnight in Vicenza, rich of beautiful building designed by the famous architect Andrea Palladio, and Treviso, a old city crossed by roman canals, but also in the towns of Montagnana, surrounded by high medieval walls and built at the foot of the Euganean Hills; Bassano del Grappa, overlooked by high mountains and crossed by Brenta River, and Lido di Venezia, an island of the lagoon with a great view over Venezia.
The itinerary skirts the Berici Hills, the Prealps and the hills of Asolo, beautiful areas where you can find lush nature, old villages and elegant villas. Getting to Venice is exciting: after a great ride along the Sile river, you cross San Giuliano Park in Mestre, where you can enjoy a fantastic view over the city, and reach the old town cycling on the 4 km-long Ponte della Libertà, the only bridge that links Venice to the mainland. Then, you get to the island of Lido on a ferry- boat: by the water you can admire the beau ful buildings of the city, San Marco’s Belltower and the elegant Palazzo Ducale. Finally, you can explore the small island of Lido and Pellestrina.
