FROM THE BEACHES OF THE ADRIATIC SEA IN ITALY TO SLOVENIA AND CROATIA
(approx. 325-385 KM; 08 days / 07 nights; self-guided tour)
The starting point of this cycle tour begins with “la Serenissima”, Venice the lagoon city on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. Cycling past the beaches of the classical holiday resorts of Jesolo and Caorle on the Italian Adriatic, an opportunity always presents itself to take a refreshing swim in the sea. Due to this fact, you should never forget to pack your swim gear.
Besides these beaches, the inland regions of the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia offers countless sites with very special charm waiting to be discovered; Mediaeval fortress towns; Roman archaeological excavations; typical Italian Piazzas and buildings embossed with Venetian influences causing the visitor to forget time and space. While on the one side, the Adriatic stretches calmly and silently, the Julian Alps rise majestically to the north. The tour terminates on the Croatia peninsular. The return journey to Venice by boat is the final crowning concluding the week long cycling tour.
