La Via Claudia
The cycling on this self-guided tour is concentrated along the Via Claudia Augusta, a 2000-year-old Roman-built road that was for many centuries the main commercial route across the Alps. Your journey begins in Austria, on the border with Italy, and takes in some of the most beautiful Tyrolean landscapes imaginable. The Via Claudia was 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 cycling route, along secondary roads, narrow country lanes and cycle paths. You will be provided with route notes and maps so navigating the days' rides couldn't be easier!
