Your cycling trip in Venetia

Magnificent villas by renowned architects will amaze you. Fragrant wines for your senses and naturally also for your palate. Little Medieval villages such as Asolo and Marostica enchant with a very special flair. You will also experience Italian flair in the two carefully selected accommodations. A historic, Venetian villa and a modern family-run hotel are the perfect base for your stunning cycle tours through the heart of the Veneto.

Day 1 : Arrival in Ponzano Veneto


Handing over of the travel documents and rental bikes by hotel staff.

Day 2 : Excursion to the river Piave and its wine route | 65 km


As a start to today’s cycle tour you cycle leisurely through the hinterland used for agriculture. Remote paths lead you to several grand country estates. After crossing the river Piave you follow the „Strada del Vino del Piave“. Here the renowed Pinot Grigio grapes are pressed to perfection. For about 15 kilometres you find yourself amidst vines and can definitely grab a handful of grapes to taste…

Day 3 : Excursion into the Prosecco-Hills | 55 km + transfer


In the morning a transfer is organized to Valdobbiadene, the Prosecco capital. At the small Piazza various cafés invite you to your first cappuccino break. Then you tackle a short ascent before the marvellous views of the sheer endless vines open up in front of you. The stunning route leads from one wine-growing village to the next. After that there are only a few kilometres left until you have reached your feel-good accommodation again. In the evening a prosecco tasting is included.

Day 4 : Ponzano Veneto – Longa Schiavon | 65 km


Past Montebelluna the cycle route leads to the fantastic Villa Maser. A somewhat steeper ascent takes you afterwards into the Medieval village Asolo. Linger for a bit in this enchanting place and stroll through the arcades providing shade. You enjoy a marvellous descent down into the flat terrain of the land all the way to Longa Schiavon, your next feel-good accommodation.

Day 5 : Excursion to Vicenza | 60 km


Past extensive corn fields of the region you cycle today along beautiful paths to Vicenza. Here the buildings of the Medieval star-architect Palladio are everywhere. The basilica and the ‚Teatro Olimpico‘ impress just as much as the grandiose Piazza die Signori. Enjoy a nice glass of wine before you cycle back to your hotel in Longa Schiavon.

Day 6 : Excursion to Marostica | 35 km


This cycle tour initially leads you into the hilly landscape around the little town of Marostica. After a longer ascent you are rewarded for your efforts with a marvellous view over the region. Numerous cherry trees along the side of the road invite you to a blissful fruit snack and make you forget the strenuous efforts from before in a heartbeat. We recommend you plan a longer break in Marostica. The stunning Medieval village is renowned because of the ‚lively game of chess‘. From here there is only a short route back to the hotel.
