Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

Starting point of this bicycle holiday is Villach, located on the border of the Klagenfurt-basin, where the rivers Drau and Gail flow together. Soon you have to say goodbye to Austria, before the bicycle tour continues in Italy.
The region Friuli-Venezia Giulia offers not only scenic variety, but also invites to a foray through the cultural variety of the region. This mixture of the cultures reflects itself also in the cuisine: Alpine-Austrian, Slovenian and Venetian influences characterise the gastronomic offer of the region.
Moving on from the peaks of the Carnic Alps you cycle on the south side of the Alps approaching the sea, ahead of you the coast of the Adria where the miles long sand beaches are extending.

The tour from Villach to Venice is an easy tour. It goes along bike paths or very quiet side roads, through small villages and picturesque landscapes.
