I1 - From Lake Garda to Venice
Getting to know the territory by bike is a means of sustainable tourism that presents unexpected experiences. In the Veneto Region, the numerous bicycle paths allow cyclists to be in contact with art, culture, gastronomy and natural wonders travelling almost exclusively by bike.
The itinerary, which extends from Lake Garda to Venice, offers a panoramic view of the rich history and tradition of the provinces of Verona, Vicenza, Padua and Venice. Departing from Garda, a historical town on the lake, in the province of Verona, the path connects different cyclable courses along the natural paths of the Adige and Brenta rivers leading to the Venetian mainland.
The cyclable path of the Adige River, which ends in Verona, is rich in examples of the Veronese Romanesque art, and crosses through the areas where the fine wines Bardolino and Valpolicella are produced. On the stretch that connects to Vicenza, the splendid Palladian villas narrate the stories of ancient nobility. From here the bicycle path along the Berica Riveria leads to Padua, home of the innovative artists Giotto and Mantegna, and then re-departs towards Venice, retracing along the ancient Burchiello road. It finally arrives in Mestre (Venice), where cyclists can replace bikes with public transportation and reach Venice.
