BIKE TOURING PROSECCO WINE ROADS

BIKE TOURING THE PROSECCO WINE ROADS | TREVISO PROVINCE

Bike Tour Italy, Prosecco wine road

The hillsides of the Prosecco Wine zone display themselves to the visitor as a cadenced sequence of slopes, embroidered with vineyards. Within this complex patchwork of vineyards, you also will find many monuments of the past, such as castles, parish churches and abbeys, all of which express the vivid history of an area that has undergone continuous change.

There are many reasons for choosing to visit the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene area as an active holiday destination: apart from fascinating towns that are rich in art, history and culture, the zone also offers a large number of wine shops, restaurants, trattoria and other premises in which one can savour the welcoming atmosphere of the area and its age-old tradition of good food and wine. Here one can still enjoy the genuine flavors of local dishes, whether in historic hostelries or in modern restaurants.

This area is great for a one day or two day bike tour during your visit to the Venice.  Reachable by train with plenty of options for lodging and eating, you will enjoy a taste of 'real Italy' away from the big tourist crowds.

Where to Bike Tour in Italy | Veneto Region

Bike Touring Verona - CYCLING From Peschiera del Garda to Malcesina A 52 km path that starting, from the center of Peschiera arrives to the center of Malcesine, will make you discover the variety of scenery and landscapes offered by the Riviera degli Olivi on Lake Garda. It starts from a coastal environment by the waters of the lake and then switch to a hilly area rich of vineyards and olive groves, crops that have made this a popular tourist destination in the world. From here, an easy ascent leads at the top of the Rocca above Bardolino and Garda, before descending again to the lake near the beautiful Punta San Vigilio. The route then connects to the historic path of the Pellegrino and arrives to Malcesine, through woods and ancient villages alternated with stretches with beautiful panoramic views of the blue lake. This path can be done by mountain bike or on foot from any town of the Riviera with direction north or south using the various access roads. Of course, the journey can be covered in a day or in stages, using, in whole or in part, also the public transport (bus or boat). BIKE TOURING THE OLIVE GROVES OF LAKE GARDA ROUTE NOTES CHECK POINTS - Peschiera del Garda - Lazise - Bardolino - Garda - Torri dei Benaco - Brenzone sul Garda - Malcesina Distance - 52 km Lenght - 5/6 hours (bike) 12 h (trekking) Level difference - 292 m Route Notes and Impressions Leaving from Pescheria there is a sign posted route the leads to you to Lazise.  I would not recommend following due to it being in consistant and parts of it that runs along the lake is crowded with walkers and is dirty.  If you are an avid rider it is easier just to cycle down the main road.  As long as it is a week day there is not to much traffic. From Lazise to Bardolino there is a bike lane on the left side of the road heading north.  Again if there is heavy traffic it is good to use but otherwise I would ride the main road.  From Bardolino to Garda there is a bike path along the lake that is nice to ride if there is not many people out.  From Garda to Malcesina you are riding the primary road there is a bike path along some sections of the lake but they are usually overcrowded with people.  There are no dark tunnels on this route.  After arriving to Malcesina you can continue north to Nago Torble or return to Peschiera via ferry boat.   This is a nice add on day to your Veneto tour.  If you need help planning your adventure or need rental bike and support contact us at mailto:This email address is being protected from spambots.
