The Veneto region situated in the northeast of Italy is the country’s most culturally diverse region, stretching from the snow-capped Dolomites to the shimmering Adriatic Sea. Many flock to the enchanting floating city of Venice or the old trading town of Verona to see where Shakespeare’s two star-crossed lovers met, but you’ll soon find there’s a wealth of small historic hamlets, cinematic piazzas, Roman architectural wonders and crisp alpine trails just waiting to be explored on our Veneto Holidays.
If you’d like to discover the region on two wheels, our Veneto tour, Dolomites, Lake Garda and Venice Ride will have you living your best “Dolce Vita”. Starting at the jagged limestone Dolomites your cycling route follows the quiet backgrounds along the Adige River towards the northern cosmopolitan shores of Lake Garda. Taking in the architectural gems of Verona, the rolling hills of Monti Berici and cycling past the beautiful Palladian villas, this spectacular Veneto Holiday ends in Venice’s intricate labyrinth of narrow streets, bridges and waterways. For a different kind of Veneto tour, why not raise a toast to Italy’s award-winning bubbles while Walking the Prosecco Hills. On this trip, enjoy wine-tastings with some of the best local producers in Valdobbiadene, S. Pietro di Barbozza and S.Stefano, climb to Monte San Giorgio to see the original front lines of WW1 and take in the stunning alpine landscape of Monte Cesen.
We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday. The bikes provided for us were of a good quality. The route was varied with lovely landscapes. The leader ensured that we stayed together as a group whilst on the bikes so that we felt safe at all times.
We had the most amazing week traipsing through the Prosecco Hills. Our guide , Vania, was happy to share her wealth of knowledge of the landscape as well as Prosecco. Vania made sure we were well looked after and kept us entertained with her wonderful personality. The Hotel Conta was ideal for the trip and the staff were super friendly . I would not hesitate in recommending this trip to anyone.
