Holiday Information

A wonderful self-guided holiday, taking you from the southern shores of Lake Garda to the charming city of Venice. Full to the brim with great riding, you'll be able to check off some wonderful areas of Italy as you ride, including Sirmione, Verona, Padova, Venice and Chioggia. This is your chance to enjoy a fantastic cycling holiday, giving you an insight into the natural wonders of northern Italy. 
This trip has been set up to give you the chance to visit the hidden renaissance gems of the “Belpaese”. The first few days will be spent exploring the stunning countryside and charming lakeside towns that surround the southern part of Lake Garda. Leaving the lake behind, you'll ride through lush countryside on your way to Verona. Continuing on, you'll follow the Adige Valley alongside canals, through fields cultivated with fruit and vines, and over hills. Your route will lead you to the lagoon of Venice, for some sightseeing before you finish your cycling journey with one last ride to Chioggia where you will spend your final evening.
With plenty of time in between to stop and see the sights along the way, this will be a memorable holiday for the whole family! 
Do let us know if you'd like to extend your trip, either starting at the northern end of Lake Garda in Riva del Garda, or by adding an extra day in Venice.

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

Although a relatively gentle route, this holiday isn’t suitable for young children and is aimed more at older kids who are comfortable riding 20 – 50 miles per day on their own bikes. We do however have trailers and tag-alongs available for those with younger families.
