A beautiful cycling journey through Austria & Italy along the 2000 year old Roman Via Claudia. The stunning scenery of the Austrian and Italian Alps complete the picture!

Description

This cycling holiday in Austria and Italy, is ideal for those wishing to experience the beauty of the Alps in style. At times somewhat challenging, the riding is concentrated along the Via Claudia Augusta, a 2000 year old Roman built road which was for many centuries the main commercial route across the Alps. Originally used for the transportation of wine and olive oil from Spain, oysters from the Mediterranean and even spices from Asia, it now serves as the perfect biking route through an area of stunning views and historic sites.
 
The journey begins in Austria on the slopes of the mighty Zugspitze (2692m) and takes in some of the most beautiful Tyrolean landscapes imaginable. From our first night's stay in Lermoos our journey heads off on a series of rolling forest trails and across undulating countryside trails, before heading upstream alongside the icy waters of the River Inn.
 
Crossing the border into Italy via the Reschen Pass, the panoramic views open up as we roll gently down into the Vinschgau Valley and South Tyrol. The ride continues via apple plantations, vineyards and historic castles and of course we'll take time during our meals to sample the food and wines for which the region is famous.
 
As the week draws to a close we'll enter the Etsch valley which leads us straight into the bustling city of Trento, where we can spend an afternoon soaking up the trendy Italian atmosphere in the numerous gelaterias and capuccino bars. We'll save some energy for the last day of riding through the Sarca Valley and onward to our final destination, Lake Garda, a grand finale to our Via Claudia adventure.
