Following your arrival, we will transfer you (Approx. 30 mins) to the charming town of Treviso. With its meandering waterways and tranquil atmosphere, it’s an ideal starting point for your tour.
We’ll provide you with your road book and all of the information you will need for the duration of your trip, before we leave you to start your self-guided tour of Veneto. Depending on your arrival time, there should also be some time to explore the town before your evening meal in one of the town’s great restaurants.
- Meals: Breakfast
- Ascent: 350 Metres Approx.
A gentle start to your journey, leaving Treviso behind you’ll ride past fertile cultivated countryside towards the Montello hills that sit below the Piave River. This area was home to the deadly battles in 1918 during the Austria-Hungarian war, and a Majestic Military Memorial erected below the hill commemorates the event.
A detour will take you to the ruins of Sant’Eustachio Abbey before you embark on a great route in the foothills of the Montello. This is a classic ride for the locals, and you may find yourself enjoying the route with fellow Italian cyclists. The route follows a water course lined with trees which makes the cycling very enjoyable! On route to Asolo, you will admire the imposing Palladian Villa of Maser. Now part of UNESCO World Heritage, it’s one of the most admired works by Venetian architect Palladio.
Following a quick refuel, you’ll be ready for the only real climb of the day, the ride up to Asolo. Designated as one of the most beautiful towns in Italy due to its position on the top of the hill, Asolo has always attracted artists and writers from all over the world, including Robert Browning. Enjoying a drink in the main piazza and a walk around the town, the last section of your ride is a sweeping descent to your hotel.
- Meals: Breakfast
- Ascent: 400 Metres Approx.
The route today will take you out towards the Piave River, cycling through the rolling hills of Ezzelini and the Colli Asolani. Once you’ve crossed the Piave River you’ll find yourselves surrounded by lush vineyards, and it’ll be clear you’ve entered the heart of the Prosecco region.
The route to Follina and ValmarIno will follow the higher road from Valdobbiadene, with Prosecco vineyards extending on the steep hills below you. On arrival at your accommodation, your host will welcome you with a glass of one of the best Prosecco wines, on the house, from the vineyards you have just cycled through. Nothing like a refreshing local wine that’s been produced within 20 kms of your accommodation!
- Meals: Breakfast
- Ascent: 250 or 500 Metres Approx.
Today’s ride is classic Prosecco, taking in the best riding and best scenery the region has to offer. Leaving your accommodation, the riding starts along the fertile lower valley separated by the high Monti dei Visentini and the lush rolling hills of Prosecco.
Heading south, you’ll start climbing, with woods giving way to vineyard after vineyard of rolling hills. Meandering up and down through valleys, there will be plenty of places to stop and take photos. Stopping at the Molinetto della Croda is a must, with a water mill set below a picturesque waterfall.
Looping west through Compea, you’ll find 117 hectares of vineyards, with over 100 wine producers – Including Conegliano Valdobbiadene producing Prosecco Superiore DOCG, and the exclusive DOCG Cartizze sparkling wine.
Following lunch, you’ll continue your ride towards Follina, where a visit to the Abbey with its stunning cloister is a must, before returning to your accommodation.
Alternatively, you can opt for a shorter 15 Mile / 25 Km ride today exploring the Lakes of Ravine. A leisurely ride following cycle routes and paths along the valley to the small lakes near Ravine, Lago di St Maria and Lago di Lago.
A cycle path loops around the lakes, making it a great option if you’re looking for a leisurely swim or a sunbathe. Traditional small villages surround the lake, and the ride will take you from village to village, where you can tuck into delicious local cuisine and indulge in a glass of local fizz at your leisure.
- Meals: Breakfast
- Ascent: 300 Metres Approx.
Time to say goodbye to this amazing area and ride back to Treviso. As you ride south, you’ll take a route that leads you past medieval castles – the castle of Collalto di Susegana whose tower and bastions remain after first world war bombardments and the Castello di San Salvatore’s imposing walls and towers tell a tale of great imposing dominance in the region (privately owned).
As you head back to Nervesa della Battaglia, the route heads south through the countryside back to Treviso, where you can enjoy a delicious evening meal.
- Meals: Breakfast
- Ascent: 250 Metres Approx.
Today you’ll make our way to the bustling seaside resort of Jesolo. You’ll set off from Treviso and follow the Greenway, a cycle route that follows the course of the river Sile to the Caigo tower in the municipality of Jesolo. This lovely route meanders the course of the Sile, along a river-side trail through lush green woods, past small inlets thriving with river bird life, watermills, castles and small villages where you can stop to explore and enjoy a coffee break.
After crossing the lock at Portegrandi, the cycle path enters the lagoon eaves, which runs for 11 km until the Sile flows into the old Piave at Caposile. Never far from the Lagoon the route reaches Jesolo and your final stretch along a canal lined with traditional fishing huts, leads you down to the busy coastal resort area – in time for celebratory drinks!
We’ll then whisk you back to Treviso at a pre-arranged time where you can head out into the old town for your final evening out.
The route uses a variety of roads (including both single lanes and quiet double roads) and cycle paths (some paved, some gravel). Approx. 85% of the route is on roads shared with vehicle traffic (some with a separated cycle lane), with around 5% of the route on mixed use paths (cyclists, pedestrians, but no motor traffic). Most roads are quiet, however there will be some busier roads, especially when cycling through built up areas and bigger towns like Treviso and Jesolo.
Prosecco is a hilly region, so short climbs and descents can be expected. Day 4 will pose the biggest challenge with a few steep climbs throughout the day.
Hybrid bikes are recommended for this tour. An e-bike is also suitable for this tour and will make day 4’s cheeky climb a little more manageable and day 6’s long stretch of riding quicker, allowing more time to spend at the beach! It’s a good option to help manage the heat on those hot summery days in June and September. E-bikes are generally heavier than hybrid bikes, which is worth bearing in mind if needing to lift the bike up / down steps or over cobbles in some of the towns.

Is this suitable for you?
Maybe you have recently got into cycling and would like to do more over consecutive days, or maybe you‘re looking for a more energetic alternative to your usual holiday? If you‘re looking for an opportunity to try some quiet roads, cycle paths or some accessible, cycle friendly routes these holidays might be for you. You’ll come across some gently undulating terrain and the odd cheeky challenge, so we’d generally expect those on a Grade 2 holiday to ride their bikes relatively frequently at home, perhaps commuting to work or heading out for some leisurely rides at the weekend.
