Itinerary

Day 1 - Trip starts in Treviso

Description

Your cycling holiday starts in the charming old town of Treviso. If you arrive early you can walk through the historic streets and see the magnificent intact city walls. You might like to relax with a glass of wine in a bar on the Piazza dei Signori, Treviso's main square.

Included Meals : None

Day 2 - Ride from charming Treviso to Asolo

Description

After breakfast you bike from your hotel, through the old town centre and the city walls on to a scenic northwesterly route. Narrow and winding roads past cultivated fields will lead you to the town of Montebelluna, situated on the edge of the Montello Nature Reserve. Cycle through quiet countryside and past the Palladian villas (country houses) dotted along the route. A final 2km climb takes you up to the town of Asolo; one of Italy's most beautiful towns and nicknamed 'City of a hundred horizons' where you spend the next two nights.

Your total cycling distance today is approximately 43km (total 600m ascent and 380m descent)

Included Meals : None

Day 3 - Circular countryside ride through Bassano del Grappa

Description

Enjoy a circular ride along beautiful country roads to the town of Bassano del Grappa - famous for its local tipple. Grappa is a strong spirit made by distilling the skins, pulp and seeds of grapes left over from winemaking. Also worth a visit is the wooden Alpini Bridge over the Brenta River, and the many cosy town squares of Bassano del Grappa and its surrounding villages. After lunch, today's ride continues across the plains, on quiet back roads passing through small villages. Monte Grappa dominates the horizon and was the theatre of 3 battles in the First World War. A final ascent leads you back to the hotel in Asolo.

Your total cycling distance today is approximately 43km (total 630m ascent and 670m descent)

Included Meals : None

Day 4 - Views of snow-capped Alps, ride to Pedeguarda di Follina

Description

After breakfast you say farewell to Asolo and a descent brings you to one of the most beautiful roads in the whole region. The breathtaking panorama of the snow-covered Alps provides a stunning backdrop to today's ride. After crossing the Piave River, the landscape changes and the Prosecco vineyards on the surrounding steep hillsides now dominate . Today's terrain is a lot hillier; although the ascents are never very long, at times they can be steep. The panoramas you will encounter make all your efforts worthwhile. The ride ends in the village of Follina where you spend the next two nights.

Your total cycling distance today is approximately 34km (total 480m ascent and 670m descent)

Included Meals : None

Day 5 - Circular ride through historic Vittorio Veneto

Description

An exciting and challenging ride awaits you today. After a steep climb you will pass through the tiny villages of Tarzo and Rolle situated along the 'Strada del Prosecco' or Prosecco route, Italy's oldest wine trail through ancient terraced vineyards. Ride downhill to the Revine Lake; then visit the historic town of Vittorio Veneto, where in 1918 the Italians defeated the Austro-Hungarian army, marking the end of the war on the Italian Front. A gentle climb will lead you out of the town, on extremely scenic roads passing through vineyards as you return to Pedeguarda.

Your total cycling distance today is approximately 48km (total 740m ascent and 745m descent)

Included Meals : None

Day 6 - Ride the beautiful hills of the Prosecco Region to Gorgo al Monticano

Description

Today's ride starts with a route that once more passes through the breath-taking hills of the Prosecco Region. Reach Conegliano, a historic town founded in the 12th century. As you enter the town, you cannot help but be impressed by the castle which dominates the whole territory. Ride on, now across the plains, until you reach Oderzo with its beautiful Piazza Grande. Finally the ride arrives at the small village of Gorgo al Monticano where you spend the night.

Your total cycling distance today is approximately 51km (total 475m ascent and 625m descent)

Included Meals : None

Day 7 - Trip ends in Gorgo al Monticano

After breakfast, the organised part of your holiday comes to an end.

I was grateful to Explore with my booking as I was forced to cancel at a late date and then was enabled to rebook which meant the difference between having no summer holiday and a wonderful one. All of the administration seemed to be very efficient, friendly and professional.

We have travelled all over the world with explore on their family adventure holidays. We have an only child and she benefited so much with instant friendships, and has some wonderful holiday memories. Explore has always been very helpful with the booking process, and we have found most of the tour leaders they use to be professional, committed, really good at their jobs.

Danijela, our tour guide, was wonderful. She shared plenty of facts about Croatia with us and managed all the arrangements really well. One of our group had a birthday while we were away and Danijela gave her a present and we celebrated. Transfers to and from the airport went well. Prior to going, the staff on the phones were really helpful with any questions.

This was our third family adventure with Explore, all have been great experiences. Kids bond immediately and adults can melt into the background and relax. The size of the groups makes mixing manageable and the guides and crews have been first rate throughout.

Cycling Information

On this tour we cycle 219 km over five days (an average of 44 km per day). We generally cycle on quiet tarmac country roads with little or no traffic. Although Veneto is a relatively flat region there are significant hills on days 4, 5 and 6. We have graded the route as moderate.
