TRAIN LINES OF THE VENETO REGION

ONE DAY ROUTES SIGN POSTED BY THE REGION THAT YOU CAN ENJOY USING THE TRAIN LINES

  • E1 – La Lunga Via delle Dolomiti - (‘The long trail of the Dolomites’). This follows the course of the old railway line that ran between Pieve di Cadore, Cortina d’Ampezzo and Tolbach in the Süd Tirol. The Veneto section finishes at the Passo Cimabanche above Cortina, but you can go on to Tolbach where it links with the Pusterbike and Drauradweg cycleways. The route is served by train and ‘bici-bus’ services.
  • E2 – Anello dei Colli Euganei (‘Circular cycle path of the Euganean Hills’)
  • E3 – L’Anello della Donzella - (‘The Donzella Ring’) a 60-kilometre circular route in the mouth of the Po;
  • E4 – Il Gira Silea - 40-kilometre circular route through the nature reserve on the banks of the river Sile to the south east of Venezia. This route also provides a convenient link between Treviso and Venezia’s Marco Polo airport;
  • E5 – Ciclovia delle Isole di Venezia  - (‘Islands of Venice cycle path’);
  • E6 – Ciclovia del Fiume Mincio - (‘Cycle path of the river Mincio’). This route is shared with the Lombardia region and links the Lago di Garda with Mantova and the river Po. It forms part of the ciclovia del Sole – which in turn is part of the Eurovelo 7;
  • E7 – I paesaggi di Palladio - (‘The landscapes of Palladio’). This takes you from almost the centre of Vicenza past two of Palladio’s most famous villas. The circular route then returns to Vicenza via the Lago di Fimon, but the initial section follows the Ciclabile Riviera Berica – a tarmac cycleway built on an old railway line which takes you out to Noventa Vicentina.
