Dolomites Venice road bike map

Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

From the north east of the Dolomites, you cycle over well-known famous mountain passes. Lake Misurina, the “Three Peaks” (Drei Zinnen – Tre Cime di Lavaredo) and the Olympic town of Cortina d’Ampezzo are only some of the highlights you will see along the way.
The tour takes you on to Bassano del Grappa where the land starts to level out. From here you slowly cycle downwards into the valley. After a short detour to Asolo, the town of a hundred horizons, you will cycle along the wine road from Valdobbiadene to Vittorio Veneto. The fashionable town of Treviso waits upon your arrival to greet you. Following the path along the River Sile, you cycle on towards the final destination of the bike tour through Northern Italy until you reach Venice.

  
Characteristics of the route:

It’s a sporty-racing bike tour for cyclists with a good physical preparation. The passes of the Dolomites ask for preparation, because there are a few longer ascents to climb (most aside of the big travelled streets – except during high season July-August). The second half of the week is going to be easier; you reach the flatter landscape of Venezia.
