Highlights and places of interest along the route:


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 piazze 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:

Until the fifth day, you will cycle on flat terrain. On the sixth day, the route will lead over three to four small hills. On the seventh day, there will be two short climbs and a long descent. You will cycle on dams, farm tracks, and side roads with little traffic. Only very short sections have to be cycled on roads with more traffic. Nearly all of the roads are asphalted. A bike tour for everyone!
