Dolomites to Venice Road Bike Tour

Italy Bike Tours

Challenge yourself! Road Bike in Italy!

  • The Dolomites are a phenomenal mountain range between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea. High peaks, steep walls, alpine pastures and mountain villages are the daily scenery of the stages. Little streets lead you up to passes or you just follow the valley from north to south getting closer and closer to the warm Adriatic Sea.

    From the north east of the Dolomites, you will cycle over famous mountain passes. Lake Misurina, the "Three Peaks" and the Olympic town of Cortina d'Ampezzo are only some of the highlights you will see along the way. The tour takes you on to Bassano del Grappa where the land starts to level out. From here you cycle slowly downwards into the valley. After a short detour to Asolo, the town of a hundred horizons, you cycle along the wine road from Valdobbiandene to Vittorio Veneto. The wonderful town of Treviso awaits your arrival. Following the path along the Sile River, you will reach Venice.

    The Dolomites are well known from the race “Giro d’Italia” and demand very good fitness from the cyclists. The final stage will lead you directly to Venice and to the large beaches of the Adriatic Sea.
