Description:

Probably the most famous cities of Italy are at the start and end of this cycle tour of outstanding beauty. In between you cycle through an almost unknown Italy. Kiwi, peach, melons, vineyards and sunflowers seam the way, birds are singing and friendly fishermen waving from their pole-huts along the canals. Far off the beaten track you discover typical towns and places. Enjoy a cup of cappuccino in one of the cosy cafes at the attractive piazza and listen to the locals, when they discuss art, culture, sports, or politics while gesticulating heavily. Join their discussion! Come on the tour with us! A wonderful trip is waiting for you!

  
Characteristics of the route:

For the first four days, you will cycle on flat terrain. Then the route will lead over small hills and the last day includes two short climbs and a long descent. You will cycle on dams, farm tracks and side roads with little traffic. Only very short sections are along roads with more traffic. Nearly all of the roads are asphalted. A bike tour for cycling lovers with a basic esperience.
