TRAVEL GUIDE TO VENICE AND THE VENETO REGION OF ITALY

Picture of Venice's Grand Canal

The Veneto Region, with its layers of history, is a land of contrasts. The city of Venice is located in the marshlands of the Adriatic coast. The Veneto Plain extends west to Italy's largest lake Lago di Garda. The Veneto also has the foothills of the Prealps, and the Italian Dolomites.  The Region has been exposed to Roman, Frankish, Byzantine and Austrian influences, all having left a remarkable artistic and historical heritage.

MAP OF RAILROAD (TRAIN) ROUTES IN THE VENETO REGION

Veneto Region Train Map

 

Your bike tour or walking trip in northern Italy can be greatly extended if you utilize the train system.  Select a base for your travels and use the train lines to get to your stat point and cycle back.  Not all towns are connected by the train many times you need to use a combination of services to get to your final destination.  One of the many reasons you mostly hear about specific locations like Venice, Florence, Milano, and Roma is that each is very easy to get to.   However, knowing the train routes and how they connect with bus services, taxi, or even using your bike you can explore Italy with ease.

Key points to remember:

  • You do not have to buy your ticket from travel agents, it is best to buy the day you are traveling there is not difference in cost.
  • The main train route in the Veneto runs from Verona to Mestre, Mestre toward Trieste, Mestre toward Udine, Padova toward Bologna, and Verona toward Trento.
  • Secondary lines are usually more bike friendly and have special cars for bicycles.  If you bicycle is in a case you do not have to pay for transport nor use special bike cars.

By using the train lines in Italy, you can extend you bicycle tour or walking tour during your visit.  The Veneto Region is perhaps the most diverse.

THE WINE ROADS OF THE VENETO REGION OF ITALY

Travel Wine Roads of Italy's Veneto

The Veneto Region is among the leading wine-producing regions of Italy, both for quality and quantity. The Veneto region has over 20 DOC zones and a variety of sub-categories.  Many of the region's wines, both dry and Spumanti white and red wine, are internationally known and appreciated. The varied geographical makeup of the region allows of the cultivation of a variety of grape types. This Geo-diversity has resulted in zones of specialized micro climates that help produce specialized wines found throughout the regions; examples are the Amarone from Valpolicella, Prosecco from Valdobbiadene, and high quality whites and spumante from Soave and Gambellare.

The three best known DOC wines in the Veneto region are: Bardolino, from the town with the same name and surrounding the shores of Garda Lake, Valpolicella, and Soave. Other noteworthy wines produced here are the white Bianco di Custoza, the excellent sparkling Prosecco, the Breganze, and the Amarone (a rich and powerful red from the Verona province). If you travel to the Treviso area, look for the little-known Clinton, a wine that is banned from distribution because it does not conform to the DOC standards, but is produced in limited quantities for local consumption.

The importance of wine making in this region is underscored by the creation in 1885 of the very first Italian school for vine growing and oenology. In addition, Veneto was the first region to constitute a Strada del Vino or "wine road". This first wine-touring road featured special road signs providing information on vines and the wines they were made into, and joined the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano DOC zones crossing a series of hilly vineyards.

One of the best ways to explore the wine zones is by bike touring or walking tours. Many secondary roads encircle the wines of zones and the city and turned it to the wine road by local tourism boards. Though the road is open to traffic most of it to understand that they are apt to find cyclist and walkers out exploring the countryside. Yes many of the roads are in the hills because the best place to grow the vines to produce grapes is an area with sloping soil for the drainage. But this does not mean you have to be a world-class bicyclist or hiker to enjoy the area. With some careful planning you can immerse yourself into the small authentic villages, history, and enjoy some of the great food and wine Italy is helpful. If you come on vacation to visit Italy you can grasp what it means to be Italian or Italian culture without seeing the country from the perspective of the hills

The most appreciated wines in the region come from the provinces of Treviso, Verona, Padova, Venice, and Vicenza. The area around Verona, with its temperate climate and hilly surrounding, is believed to have cultivated grapes since the Bronze Age. These wines zones make a perfect destination to relax and enjoy nature by exploring by bicycle or foot. There are areas accessible for all levels of cyclist and walkers, and what better way to relax after a good day of riding or hiking with a glass of quality wine.
