From the north east of the Dolomites, you cycle through the Höhlenstein Valley passing by the famous “Drei Zinnen” (Three Peaks), and onto the Olympic town of Cortina d’Ampezzo. Following the old railway track you continue to Pieve di Cadore, the birth town of Titian. On the way to Conegliano you will pass different little typical Italian villages. From here you slowly reach the lowlands. Following the River Sile, you finally reach Mestre Venice – entrance to the lagoon city Venice.
