Day 2 Treviso

Today's cycling stage will take you through the beautiful provincial capital of Treviso. A charming city that still goes free of mass tourism. The city has a friendly atmosphere and is one of the prettiest in the region, with its channels integrated into the urban landscape, the peaceful green parks and the historic center. In Treviso several small rivers meet up and merge together to the Piave River, and then it is the home of the delicious dessert Tiramisu.

The cycling route passes ancient fortresses before you cycle into the heart of "citta dell'acqua" the city of water. This nickname well describes the city center, where several channels intersect. The route continues past the cathedral with its characteristic domes, past the City Hall in the city center and further out past the patrician villas with their characteristic wall paintings before you again cycle out into the country side and back to your hotel.

Distance: approx. 25km

Day 3 The Piave River and the wine route

The day begins with a relaxing bike ride through croplands, where you will get past deserted roads that winds past majestic and lonely mansions and villas.

After crossing the Piave River, you will cycle along the "Strada dei Vini Del Piave". These wine routes get their names from the great vineyards surrounding them. This is where the world famous Pinot Grigio grapes are grown and harvested with great success. You will follow this lush landscape of vines for about 15 km. before heading for the hotel.

Distance: approx. 65km

Day 4 Castelfranco Veneto

The city surrounds a large and well-preserved fortress, which still stands beautifully with its high red brick walls. It measures 232 meters/761ft on each side and in addition to the 4 towers, marking the corners, the tower has has two more charming towers. One on the south wall, which acts as a bell tower for the cathedral, and one on the east wall. Furthermore, the entire fortress surrounded by a moat.

Day 5 The hilly landscape Prosecco

This day begins with a transfer that leads you to Valdobbiadene. This town is the headquarter of the Prosecco area and surrounded by vineyards. An atmospheric little square in the town center, with its variety of cafes, is an obvious place to enjoy a cup of real Italian cappuccino, before cycling up the longest hill on this tour (about 2 km). It is difinitely worth the effort, as the view of endless vineyards meets you at the top.

From here, the route takes you through several small unique wine villages. In one of these villages you will be invited to a tasting of Prosecco - the delicious and famous sparkling wine (included). After this, there is only few kilometers back to the hotel.
