Venice & the Veneto: Mel organised a 4 Day cycle tour for us on part of the circular route from Vincenza in North East Italy to the Lido peninsula south of Venice.
It was a superb bike tour with a fantastic stop in Venice. The 4 hotels varied between 2-4 star and we’re all clean, comfortable, bike friendly, good breakfasts (especially in Treviso).
The bikes were very comfortable, well equipped touring type bikes, needed for the mix of small not busy back roads, mostly cycle paths and beautiful, peaceful riverside cemented tracks.
The variety of scenery and route type is wonderful too; tracks through Valpolicella vineyards, historic small towns in the Dolomite foothills (only one short but worthwhile climb to Asola), easy flat riverside paths & back roads into outskirts of Venice, and cycle tracks through the coastal suburbs and villages of the Venetian Lido.
Mel’s great organization made the trip simple and relaxing. The route guide book instructions can be a bit tricky to follow especially into and out of town stops but that adds to the adventure!
Thoroughly would recommend using Mel and RFH to make your Italian bike tour wonderfully enjoyable.
