View Holiday Schedule

On this bike and barge holiday you'll be following canals, travelling through vineyards and riding along country roads as you explore some of the most beautiful and romantic cities in Northern Italy. 
You'll visit some of Northern Italy’s most enticing cities including beautiful Venice, Ferrara, the capital of the Este family and Mantova, the seat of the Gonzaga dynasty. You'll enjoy flat terrain as you follow the River Po, the longest river in Italy, and you'll experience the tranquillity and natural attractions of the Po Delta, one of Europe’s largest wetlands.
Your accommodation for the week is on a specially designed boat. During the day, a local leader will be leading the way, however route descriptions are provided if you'd prefer to cycle independently from the group. This tour is run in conjunction with a local partner and you will join their guests on the tour. You will spend your evenings sharing experiences of the day with an international group of cyclists over authentic regional cuisine, cooked and served on board the barge. Please get in touch if you'd like to know the make up of the group booked onto your chosen departure.
If the below dates don't work for you, or if you'd prefer to do the route the other way around, you could consider starting the trip in Mantova and making your way to Venice. Both barges are available on both versions of the route on alternate weeks. Please contact us for details.
