Why You'll Love This Tour

Overview

LAKE GARDA TO VENICE: CYCLING ITALY’S VENETO

Grace defines the Veneto region of Italy. It glimmers on the palm-lined shores of Lake Garda…rises in the elegant villas of native son Andrea Palladio…and unfolds on cycling routes through the dreamy Berici Hills. This wistful landscape of rolling hills, limestone cliffs, and citrus groves hides quaint villages and wineries. Coursing rivers lead to grappa and olive oil factories. And they all greet us with open arms and uncorked bottles. It is truly a pleasure to cycle this sophisticated corner of Italy. What’s more, at our refined hotels, you’ll sample the life of the nobility that once flocked here.
