TRAVEL ITINERARY

8 days / 7 nights

Day 1

Individual arrival at the hotel in Hochpustertal. Free, unguarded public car park near the hotel.

Day 2

(approx. 30 - 35 km)

From Villabassa/Dobbiaco you start on the bike path into the Höhlenstein Valley, past lake Toblach and the War cemetery. This area was used as the front during the 1st World War. You carry on past lake Dürrensee (on the left you can see the famous Drei Zinnen/Three Peaks); the cycle path ascends slightly before you get to the border – Gemärk/Cimabanche - of the region South Tyrol and the region of the Veneto. From here you cycle towards the south to Cortina d`Ampezzo.

Day 3

(approx. 75 km)

Today the path is going slightly downwards, for the most part on the old railway track; you will see the Sorapis on the left and located on the right the Cinque Torri (Five Towers). You continue on to the south through the Boite Valley towards Pieve/Calalzo di Cadore. From here the new cycling path takes you to Longarone. This town was completely rebuilt in 1963 after a landslide filled the dam above the village and caused a flood. From Longarone the cycle path is slightly hilly until you reach Belluno.

Day 4

(approx. 40 km)

From Belluno, the small capital of this province, the tour follows tree lined avenues and hilly landscapes until the end of the day in Feltre. During the day you come along small and scenic villages. In the North you see the magnificent southern Dolomites, your companion for the first stages.

Day 5

(approx. 55 km)

The first kilometres you cycle easily before you descend to the Brenta Valley. Where the river Brenta joins the plains, lies the town of Bassano del Grappa. The name of the town comes from Mount “Monte” Grappa. Upon arrival you can enjoy a well-earned “Grappa”. There are many places of interest to visit in the town such as San Francesco, the „Museo Civico“ (museum) or the Piazza della Libertà.

Day 6

(approx. 55 km)

On leaving the Dolomitic Alps, you occasionally see various villas designed by the renowned architect Palladio. The town of Asolo is ideal for a rest before continuing along to the plains to Treviso, the town of the water striders. Along the canals there are many wonderful houses and shops to admire. This is a centre for Italian fashion, especially shoes and famous labels like Benetton.

Day 7

(approx. 45 km)

Following the River Sile, you cycle towards the Adriatic Sea straight to Venice (mainland) where the impressive “Serenissima“ can be admired.
