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 known as "Little Venice" and 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.
