After arrival to your first hotel in Mestre (on the mainland, just across the bridge from Venice) in the afternoon, you will receive further tour information and your bikes. You will also have the opportunity to visit the city that lives on water - Venice, easily reached by public transportation in about 20 minutes.

Day 2: Mestre - Venice - Chioggia/Sottomarina, 22 mi. (35 km)
Start the day by crossing the Freedom Bridge to Venice. By ferry you'll go to the famous Lido where you'll hop back on the bike. Via Pellestrina, with a marvellous view of the sea, you pedal your way to Chioggia. This is a quiet little town, taking you back into the times of Venice’s sea power. Enjoy your dinner in one of the typical seafood restaurants. Overnight in either Chioggia or Sottomarina.

Day 3: Chioggia/Sottomarina - Rovigo, 41 mi. (65 km)
On quiet roads you cycle to the Adige River. Fertile fields, melon plantations and solitary villages seam your way to Rovigo. This charming little town with it's narrow alleyways, spacious piazzas (squares), comfortable cafés and friendly people is your place to stay overnight.

Day 4: Rovigo - Vicenza, 37 mi. (60 km) + train ride
Today your bicycle tour in Italy starts with a train ride to Monselice. Back on your bike, you cross the rolling Euganese hills to Arquà Petrarca. You will realize this little town was able to maintain the medieval character over the centuries. Further on, you cycle on solitary roads to the foot of Monti Berici (mountain range). They will be your steady companion unto the very center of Vicenza. Here, in the old town, you can feel the influence of Palladio, the famous medieval architect.

Day 5: Vicenza - Bassano del Grappa, 25 mi. (40 km)
From Vicenza, you will ride your bike on nice roads to Marostica which  bills itself as the 'City of Chess': every two years a medieval-themed festival is held here, when a giant chess game is enacted with human chess-pieces. This takes place in the town square, Piazza del Castello, where the paving marks out a huge chessboard.  This  is a picturesque place, located with the Veneto plain on one side and green hills to the north. Marostica's own hill is crowned with a large ruined castle; defensive walls descend to enclose the hillside and the town center below in a protective embrace.

Day 6: Bassano del Grappa - Treviso, 34 mi. (55 km)
In the morning, you will cycle up some small hills after which only the climb to Asolo remains. The idyllic village of Roman origin invites you to take a break and explore. The trail then descends slightly and you will cycle into the region of the world famous Prosecco and further to Treviso with its many attractions. 

Day 7: Treviso - Venice/Mestre, 28 mi. (45 km)
First the path leads along the sile River to Casale. Already you are close to where you began. Your hotel is located on the mainland before Venice with an excellent bus connection to the lagoon city.
