Gentle bike paths lead you on a bike tour through the spectacular Dolomites on the border of Italy and Austria then down past lovely terraced vineyards, and through classic medieval towns and villages before reaching our ultimate destination, Venice and the Adriatic Sea.
Your route takes you along mountain valleys, past a myriad of castles, beautiful villas, ancient villages, and handsome vineyards. In the process, you gradually lose over 4,200 feet in elevation.
Starting from your hotel in San Candido, you take a beautiful ride down through the Austrian border to visit the handsome town of Lienz. You spend two nights in Cortina, the site of the 1956 Winter Olympics, and then visit Belluno, Valdobbiadene (where you have a chance to taste the best Prosecco in the world) and Villa di Maser, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a night in beautiful Treviso, you transfer to Venice where a vaporetto takes you along the Grand Canal to the Rialto Bridge and the start of a spectacular tour of what has to be one of the most fascinating and beautiful cities in the world.
Add to all this wonderful adventure the legendary hospitality and unsurpassed cuisine of northern Italy and you have a perfect experience indeed.
