Day-To-Day Itinerary

Bolzano to Verona Map

Due to organizational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during your holiday. For example, along the way you may find temporary deviations caused by roadworks, which cannot be foreseen.

Day 1: Arrival in Bolzano
Arrival in Bolzano, a famous commercial and tourist center and also a historical and cultural connection between the Italian and the German world. 

Day 2: Bolzano - Trento, 40/45 mi. (65/70 km)
Today you will ride mostly along the Adige River, through orchards and vineyards. The dam pathways lead to Trento. It is possible to shorten the stage by taking the train in several train stations along the way.

Day 3: Trento - Desenzano/Peschiera, 31 mi. (50 km) + ferry
Cycling along the Adige you reach Rovereto and Mori. From here, you head towards Lake Garda. After a short ascent, a refreshing descent will follow and lead you to Torbole and Riva. A ferry cruise takes you to the southern part of the lake.

In case of strike, bad weather conditions, technical breakdowns, safety problems or any other reason preventing the regular departure of the ferry boat (from Riva del Garda to Peschiera/Desenzano), the ferry boat company can delay, cancel or deviate the navigation without notice.

In case of cancellation, the ferry boat service will be replaced by alternative means of transport (usually by bus). The same applies if the ferry boat service is no longer available (for example at the end of the season).

Day 4: Desenzano/Peschiera - Verona, 37/22 mi. (60/35 km)
Today cycle to Verona, one of the most important and beautiful cities in the Veneto region.

Day 5: Departure from Verona
Departure after breakfast.

    Providing maps with a larger scale would be very useful especially when going onto roads. Road names would help too as sometimes we can't tell if we're lost based on looking at the map because there are no road names. Without my phone's GPS I would be completely lost. There are also some Eurobike signs which point in opposite directions which is sometimes a bit confusing.
