Overview

What do you think of when you hear the name Venice, Italy. The beauty, the charm, the history, the art, the food - Venice truly can be all things to all people. And to experience all this great city of world has to offer along with an amazing none day bike ride may just be too much for your senses to appreciate. We have planned a nine day eight night trip starting and ending in Vicenza, Italy and including several mid-week days in the city know as the QUEEN OF THE ADRIATIC. Cycling this sophisticated corner of Italy is a real pleasure: admire the elegant villas of the Venetian nobility, scattered in the whole region…discover Vicenza, architect Palladio's personal; "showcase" and part of the World Heritage List since 1994…taste a typical "grappa" in Bassano, famous also for its covered wooden bridge…cycle the Prosecco vineyard between Asolo and Treviso…explore the timeless fascination of Venice by foot and by water…take a walk in the charming Chioggia, affectionately know as "Little Venice" with tour their amazing fish market… discover the city centre of Padua, home to one of the oldest Italian (and European) universities. This tour is among European classics, curling between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea. Our trip includes 8 nights accommodations in 3/4 star hotels including taxes (including 2 nights in Venice and a guided tour of this amazing city) and all meals. Your bike rental is included as is a water bottle. We will have an English speaking guide with us at all times along with a support van to care for our bikes as well as offer a respite to any rider who needs some "time off" the bike. We have built in a wine tasting in one city, a cheese tasting in another, a visit to a local ice creamery and entrance to a tour of the Villa Valmarana so you can truly get to experience the local area. Airport transfers and a ferry ride are also included in this great package. This 10-day bike tour including the two days in Venice, 6 days biking (low intermediate) starting and ending in Vicenza, Italy, a visit to Padua, Chioggia and the wine and cheese tastings is only $2435. The cost does not include approx. $1000 airfare.
