Backroads to Venice

8 Days Moderate Reviews

Tour Operator:
This enchanting journey takes us through the historic Veneto region of north-west Italy. Taking in the splendid cities of Trento, Verona and Vicenza we have time to appreciate the architectural and cultural delights specific to each. Starting from the mountains around Bolzano, passing the beauty of Lake Garda and winding through pretty meadows and orchards we head east to the lovely town of Mestre, located on the doorstep of Venice.

I am a 42yo cyclist from Sydney, and cycle often.

Physically speaking, I would like to say the tour was very challenging ( if you allowed it ) and very easy if you are only a less often cyclist.

I really enjoyed the cycle through the Dolomite region and the entry into Lake Garda. A truly amazing part of the world. Be prepared to put on weight in Italy, and work hard during the day to minimise the impact of your stomach! A gastronomic delight.

I had a lovely tour leader called Petra, she is from Italy and only joined the company Girolibero. They are a very professional company with excellent equipment and guide information supplied. A tip if you are a regular cyclist with a travelling mate: take the unguided tour. You still have a leader, and you are somewhat more challenged in the route options. The route is marked with handy green and black stickers, if you get lost (look for them if you want to get back on the path).

I would recommend choosing wisely what sort of holiday you want - a relaxed one or a training one. I would choose again as a training one the self guided tour (with a leader).

I would rate this tour a 3.5 to 4/5 based on the information provided . It helps when the language you speak - is spoken by the guide. Interesting to have a mix of European languages though - makes it interesting :-). The meals were all excellent and accommodation - very good to excellent . A few places with pay wifi - but no problem (you are on holiday).

Italy is a lovely place, and would use this tour company again :-)
