On reaching the northern shore of Lake Garda, you will be immediately mesmerised by the breath-taking views of one of the most famous Italian lakes. A ferry cruise on the lake gives you the opportunity to take in these wonderful vistas before continuing the ride through the beautiful cities of Verona, Padova and finally the canals and waterways of Venice.
This trip is classified as Road with the terrain and route being 95% tarmac roads, 5% gravel/unpaved roads. The tour operator aims to use mainly quiet roads and cycle paths where possible, but at times you may need to cross busy road sections in order to reach the quieter routes on the other side. Although there are no real steep climbs or technical difficulties, at times the route is undulating and requires a reasonable level of fitness.
A support vehicle (with limited seats) is available throughout the trip, it will not be able to follow the group at all times but it will meet you at the end of cycle paths and at junctions to give route directions and allow access to any items you don’t wish to carry on the bike.
