Ride through the stunning Italian Dolomites to the Venice Lagoon 

Few landscapes in Europe match the unique beauty of the jagged limestone
Dolomites. The route starts with incredible views of Trentino’s dramatic
mountains, cycling on relatively easy roads and tracks along the Adige River.
On reaching the northern shore of Lake Garda, we will be immediately
mesmerised by the breath-taking views of one of the most famous Italian
lakes. A four hour ferry cruise on the lake gives us 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.

Cycling profile

Day 1

Bolzano is the capital city of the South Tyrol and is in a stunning location
surrounded by mountains. In 2012 Bolzano was voted as the city with the best
quality of life in Italy. After checking into our hotel there is time to
explore the town and go out for an evening meal.
*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 2

After familiarising ourselves with the bikes, we cycle along the Adige River.
Today’s ride is mainly on cycling paths and quiet roads, with an overall
ascent of approximately 300m. Cycling through orchards and vineyards, we pass
Lake Caldaro and the lovely villages of Ora, Egna and Salorno. This area is
well known for its wine production, which represents three quarters of the
whole of the South Tyrol. We end today’s ride in the pretty city of Trento,
where Italian Renaissance and Germanic influences meet.

Day 3

We continue along the Adige until we reach Rovereto and Mori. From here, we
head west towards the northern shores of Lake Garda. After a short ascent, we
cycle down to Torbole and then onto the elegant resort of Riva del Garda.
There we take the ferry to the southern end of the lake, leaving Trentino and
heading towards the Veneto region. The 4 hour cruise on the lake gives us the
opportunity to enjoy the splendid landscape and relax before cycling to our
final destination of the day: Desenzano.
*
*

Day 4

Cycling mainly on quiet roads and cycle paths today, we make our way to the
legendary city of Verona. Located on the river Adige, Verona is arguably the
most beautiful city in Veneto. Its famous arena is one of the many Roman
monuments we can discover there. Other places of interest are the Basilica
San Zeno and of course Juliet’s house and the famous balcony!
*
*

Day 5

After a flat start, we reach the hillier region of Monti Berici. There are a
couple of more challenging climbs on today’s route as we cycle over the
undulating terrain, but we are rewarded with fantastic views of our
destination for the day: Vicenza. The old city centre is a jewel of
Renaissance architecture: private palaces, public buildings and the Basilica
are testaments to the work of one of Italy’s most renowned architects: Andrea
Palladio. A visit to the best ice-cream parlour in Vicenza is a great reward
after today’s ride!

Day 6

Leaving Vicenza, we cycle past the beautiful Palladian Villa Rotonda. We
continue along the Bacchiglione River, on relatively quiet and flat roads, to
the fascinating city of Padova, famous for the Scrovegni Chapel, painted by
Giotto, and the Prato della Valle, one of the biggest squares in Europe.

Day 7

We continue cycling through Veneto, along the Brenta Canal and passing
numerous villas belonging to the ancient Venetian nobility (Villa Pisani,
Villa Widmann). Today’s ride ends in Mestre, which is the final destination
for our week of cycling. Here we drop off the bikes, get changed and hop on a
bus over the bridge to Venice. Once in the heart of the ‘Floating City’, we
can explore the labyrinth of narrow streets, bridges and waterways. We will
see famous sights including Doge’s Palace, the Rialto Bridge and of course
Piazza San Marco. After exploring the city we can enjoy a relaxed evening and
perhaps a gondola ride before returning to our hotel in Mestre.

Day 8

After breakfast the trip ends in Mestre.

Customer Feedback

Dolomites to Venice

Summary:
A really beautiful ride. Only a couple of Challenging Hills. Our guide,
Michele, found the most amazing places to eat and his knowledge of all the
areas we visited was insightful. We had a very happy/social and quite fit
group, who were always very supportive. The various stops along the way were
breath taking. The trip along Lake Garda – magic

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
Venice, as expected, was amazing – even in the heat, the bustle of the crowds
Venice felt very special and worth a very lengthy visit.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Michele was exceptional. Always supporting you and encouraging. Incredibly
well organised whilst being very flexible with plans always shaped in favour
of the group. He works very hard, has a mischievous sense of humour, was fun
and a steered us through with a light but firm sense of leadership. He was
inspirational and i can’t imagine a better group leader.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
a very enjoyable ride not too difficult.

A Most Enjoyable Trip

Summary:
While I had previously been on several CTC tours, this was my first one with
Exodus and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Unlike other participants, I took my
own bike and the only slightly stressed moment was having to re-assemble it
late at Bolzano after a late arrival. After that, all aspects of the trip
were most enjoyable. The route, much of it on excellent cycle paths, took us
through varied and often very beautiful landscapes. The moderate distances
and level of difficulty suited me well as a 75 year-old whose powers have
declined a little. Starting and finishing our rides quite early enabled us
to explore and enjoy some very beautiful and interesting towns and cities
with some stunning architecture. Our enjoyment was greatly enhanced by our
leader, Michele’s lively and knowledgeable commentary on all that we saw,
reflecting the deep love and knowledge he has of the region which is his
home. The accommodation was general good or very good for the price we were
paying and the restaurants that Michele took us to were all good and made our
evenings as enjoyable as our days. Michele’s excellent leadership, warm,
lively, extraverted personality, concern for others and great sense of fun
hugely contributed to building a strongly bonded tour group.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
There were quite a few inspirational moments, but perhaps the most stunning
was the visit to the artist Giotto’s Chapel de Scrovegni in Padua. I was in
awe of the scope and quality of this marvellous work of art and I really
appreciated Michele offering us the opportunity to see this wonder and
organising it for us

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
I find it difficult to fault Michele for whom I formed a great personal
liking. He combined being very businesslike about the organisation of the
trip and ensuring that we kept to a reasonable schedule with being a very
warm, friendly and often witty person who strived to ensure that everyone
had a good time, even if the cycling stretched them a bit. He really thought
about what might make people happy. Knowing I had a lifelong interest in
cycle racing he introduced us and me in particular to a friend who had been a
top roadman sprinter in the 1960s and 70s and won the World Road Championship
in 1972. It was a great thrill! He managed well the considerable
differences in ability and fitness between different members of the group,
ensuring both that they were given encouragement and waited for. For the
biggest climb of the tour he arranged for a van as a fall back for the
weakest member and she was pleased to take advantage of it. Where we had to
encounter heavy traffic at intersections with main road, he was very good at
protecting us from harm and shepherding us through safely. Socially Michele
was really great and a pleasure to be with. We also greatly enjoyed meeting
his lovely family in Vicenza. Michele must surely be in the running for tour
leader of the year.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
The advice in the trip notes is about right and certainly be prepared for
cooler temperatures and rain. We had some, but not too much. I took my own
drop handlebar touring bike, which is a contrast with the high handlebars of
the rented bikes everyone else rode. Although it was a hassle packing up my
own bike in a bike bag, I still think it just beat riding the unfamiliar
rented bikes, although I cannot say there was anything seriously wrong with
them. They had a good range of gears. If you take your own bike, you need
to be prepared to reassemble it quite late at night at Bolzano, unless you
travel there independently. It is a long trek from Venice airport. The
alternative is to get up very early on the first cycling day, which has an
early start.

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
As we arrived late and left early, we only had a superficial look at Bolzano.
I really liked Trento, where we spent our first night, and Verona, Vicenza
and Padua were wonderful. It was my first visit to Venice for 50 years and
although it is still special and I enjoyed it, some things I saw and heard
made me a bit sad for the old city. Quite a lot of the buildings are in a
bad state or repair and look rather shabby. I understand that it suffers
from a serious de-population problem that contributes to this and a recent
article in an English newspaper said that that Venice was going through
something of a crisis, partly through the great number of tourists coming off
cruise ships. I hope something can be done.

Awesome “Super Grouppo!”

Summary:
This was my first cycle tour with Exodus and my first cycle tour in Italy.
It will not be the last with Exodus or in Italy. The experience was awesome!
I flew across the pond from the states expecting a great trip with two
friends. It wasn’t just a great trip it was awesome! We met the other
members of our tour group and our fantastic guide Michele at the Mestre
airport and traveled to Bolzano for our first overnight. We were fitted for
bikes the next morning. Michele installed my seat and pedals from my bike at
home. We were given a handlebar bag to keep and a pannier and lock to use
during the tour. My bike was great and performed flawlessly for the week!
The Dolomites and the Adige river valley are very scenic to say the least.
The cycling was primarily on cycle paths. We didn’t need to worry about
traffic, we could just take in the beauty of Italy. The times we did cross
or use roadways or roundabouts Michele was very careful to insure the group’s
safety.
After a day on the bikes we bonded as a group. I came with two friends. I
left at the end of the week with eleven other friends! The lodging was
comfortable and the food was great! Michele even gave the option of a pre
breakfast ride a couple of times to those that desired more saddle time.
That’s me! Michele definitely has a passion for Italy, people, and showing
others a great time! He has a wealth of knowledge about Italy, and the towns
and villages we passed through. Michele introduced the group to his family
at dinner in Vicenza! The group enjoyed getting to know them.
I strongly urge anyone with a spirit of adventure to take this tour. If you
cycle at all you are set. If not grab a bike and cycle a bit or go to a spin
class for a few weeks prior to your tour. It’s relaxed paced cycling with a
couple of challenges thrown in for spice. Michele will insure you will be a
survivor and what views you will see and memories you will make!

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
The most inspirational moment for me was the groups “Last Supper” in Venice.
The glorious week of riding, scenery, and group camaraderie was coming to a
close. Two of the ladies in the tour group secretly purchased trinkets for
each tour member that they deemed went with our individual personalities.
Each tour member was presented their “gift” and told why that gift was chosen
for them at our closing dinner. It was great fun and helped take the edge
off the fact that our tour was over…at least until we can book the next
one!

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Michele is a six star group leader if there are six stars! Michele cares
about everyone in the tour and insures that a great time is enjoyed by all.
He is passionate about his job, Italy, and people. I always felt completely
safe and secure on the cycle paths, streets, and roundabouts. Michele is a
wealth of knowledge on Italy and the villages we passed through. I would
love to tour with Michele again!

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
If you think you can’t do this, think again. The cycling is easy for the
most part. There are a couple of challenges for spice but you might surprise
yourself. Michele will not let you fail! If you cycle at all you are
golden. If you aren’t a cyclist go to a spin class or get a bike and ride a
bit to acclimate your body to the bike. Then sign up, pedal down the Adige
river valley, and enjoy the views!

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
I’m hooked! I will be back for more cycling holidays with Exodus in Italy

Bolzano to Venice

Summary:
This was my first cycling holiday with a group , normally I cycle self guided
which allows me time to stop and stare and take photographs. From day one I
found myself way behind the other members, my pace was averaging 19 – 20 kph,
which is above the advertised “Moderate: 13-16km/8-10miles an hour”, but
this was not fast enough. I must emphasise that for me, it was not a problem
as exodus provide some excellent maps and I am used to cycling alone so I
never felt lost. However, I still had a great 6 days, saw some brilliant
scenery passed though great villages and towns. The restaurants and cafes we
stopped at provided excellent choice of food and drinks at a reasonable
price. All hotels were comfortable and well located. Evening meals with this
diverse group were in well chosen restaurants and I thoroughly enjoyed their
company as well as the food and drinks

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
The most memorable was the ride (glide!) down to Lake Garda, excellent views
of the Lake as I descended

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
I didn’t really have that much contact with the Leader Michele, but from my
perspective he is one of life’s gentleman, and seemed generally concerned
about the group members enjoyment. His family that we met in his home town of
Viceza are delightful.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
If you want more time to visit the cities and towns then I would suggest self
guided with a day’s stop over in the places you would want to investigate

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
Would I cycle with exodus again, yes absolutely? Would I cycle with a group
again – only time will tell?

Bolzano to Venice

Summary:
This was my first cycling holiday and hopefully won’t be my last. I had a
fabulous time, saw some wonderful sights and met a great group of people on
this trip. The cycling wasn’t too hard, but enough to make you appreciate you
had earned your distance each day. Being the last trip of the season, the
weather could have been a problem, but we were lucky until the last day when
the heavens opened. The scenery, towns, cities and villages were superb and
the food and drink fantastic. The bikes were good for the kind of terrain we
were travelling and the majority of the trip was on cycle paths and quiet
roads.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
There were many, but the one that stands out for me was the ride down through
the vineyards and into Soave. The sun was out, the grapes were being picked
and the castle overlooking the town all came together and I thought ‘this is
the life’

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Michele is a legend. He couldn’t do enough for us, always smiling and with a
great sense of humour. He took us to some super restaurants and cafes,
advised us on the local food and drink and his local knowledge on the
history, architecture and culture of the area really added to our enjoyment
of the holiday. We also got to meet his beautiful family in his most
beautiful city.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
If you are thinking about it, just do it. And when you do, take time to look
around, take it all in and enjoy every minute because the week goes too
quickly.

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
If you are worried about riding with a group of people you’ve never met,
don’t. We had a great bunch, all different ages and abilities, a real
diverse group, but we all gelled so well. It was another highlight of the
holiday enjoying their company, having a lot of fun both whilst riding and
after in the bars and restaurants.

A lovely ride

Summary:
This was a really lovely ride through contrasting scenery from the mountains,
through several different cities to Venice. The riding was easy, mostly on
lovely cycle paths with regular water fountains and cafes. There were only a
few climbs, although some of the days were quite long, with headwinds. The
food was good and the hotels variable, but always comfortable.

Rating: 4

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
Coming over the pass and getting a first view of Lake Garda was pretty
breath-taking. Venice was very memorable too.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
The group leader was great, on the go from organizing extra rides before
breakfast to taking us out to dinner somewhere special in the evening. He
controlled the traffic and the long snake of cyclists really well, and never
lost any of us despite the best efforts of some of us! Always full of
information and passion for his country.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
Take clothes for all weathers. We needed sun cream and a hat one day, then
the next day got caught in an unforecast spell of freezing cold rain and got
soaked, which led to me catching cold. Have proper waterproofs always on you.
A couple of the days are quite long, and a headwind is common, but mostly the
riding is easy and flat. There are about 6 big climbs over the whole ride,
the first being as soon as you set off! If you are going to take a day off,
make it day 5, which is very long with quite a lot of urban riding, although
you will then miss Soave, which is beautiful. There is not much time to look
around the cities, so it would be a good idea to allow an extra few days not
just to see Venice, but also to take the train back up to Padua, Verona and
Vicenza for a good look around.

DOLOMITES JULY 2016

Summary:
This was my first vacation since I was a little girl and I couldn’t be
happier with how it turned out. This trip included so much natural beauty,
history, and cultural exposure that I feel I got more exposure to Italy in
just a week than some people get in a month. I didn’t find the trip to be
terribly physically challenging, which enabled me to appreciate the beautiful
scenery and company that much more.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
I completed a “bonus climb” with 4 of my fellow travelers up a very steep
hill after we’d reached one of our destination cities. Shortly before
completing the climb I first uttered the words “I don’t think I can do this”
– and I’ve never been happier to have been proven wrong!

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Our group leader Michele was excellent and went above and beyond anything I
would have expected. Besides being an experienced and capable cyclist with a
great sense of humor, he also had a strong knowledge of history and made sure
to point out areas of historic significance during the trip. He organized
many other optional events activities including group dinners, walking tours
around our destination cities, and even bonus early morning cycling trips
around the towns that we were staying in. Lastly, I am vegetarian and Michele
always helped me find vegetarian options whenever we stopped to eat.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
Great beginner trip. If you’re relatively new to destination cycling trips
this is an excellent first step.

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
A few small things. There was a transit strike in Italy on the first day of
the trip that made the meeting in Venice a little chaotic. If you could
please provide us with a local contact prior to departing, it might help
mitigate any confusion at the airport. This is especially true for overseas
participants such as myself, as the only exodus contacts I had were in Canada
and there is a 6 hour time difference between Canada and Italy, so if I have
any problems it may take a long time before my contacts can follow up with
me.

Also, just wondering if it would be possible to create an exodus app – maybe
something compatible with Google Maps – that shows the cycling route? We all
received maps upon arrival and there were arrows en route directing us to
where we were supposed to go, but I understand the competition has been
tampering with the arrows and map reading is a skill. If there is a way to
locate the route on our phones, it might help people who get lost.

Cheers!!

Wonderful first cycling holiday

Summary:
This was my first cycling holiday so I was not sure what to expect. Since
the trip is rated Moderate I thought it may be challenging as I have not done
much cycling before and only bought a bike a month ago. At times it was a
bit tough with windy conditions and since I wanted to stop and take photos to
make it easier for myself Michele arranged for me to get an E-bike on the
second day. This made a huge difference especially for the hills and I
didn’t have any worries anymore.

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:

Question:

Answer:
Michele is an excellent tour leader and took care of the group and made sure

Activity Levels


Activity Levels range from Leisurely to Tough, the grading takes into account the daily cycling distances and terrain, as well as any technical riding skill required. We also consider the number of cycling days as there can be a cumulative affect from tiredness on a longer trip and the type of accommodation used, as this can also influence your day to day recovery.

If you are in any doubt, please give us a call on +353-1-607 9900 or email us.


Activity level 1 - Leisurely Activity level 1: Leisurely

If you can ride a bike and enjoy gentle exercise, these are an ideal introduction to a cycling holiday. No routes are entirely flat, so expect some short climbs and descents. Maximum daily height gain is approximately 250 metres and daily distances rarely exceed 50kms (32 miles), any longer days are often optional.


Activity level 3 - Moderate Activity level 3: Moderate

Most people who enjoy a weekend riding at home will enjoy a Moderate trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. Moderate off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances rarely exceed 70kms (43 miles) per day.


Activity level 5 - Challenging Activity level 5: Challenging

For any ride at this level, fitness is important. Challenging trips require confidence in your ability and physical condition. They are equivalent to an extended period of cycling at home. Previous mountain biking experience is essential for Challenging off road trips as they will involve some technical riding.


Activity level 7 - Tough Activity level 7: Tough

Previous experience of the cycling style or surface is a must as these routes have long cycling days and tougher terrain on both road and off road trips. You need complete confidence in your fitness and technical ability to cope with difficult or steep terrain, rough surfaces and longer distances. Ideal for those seeking a challenge!


Split grades

In order to provide more accuracy, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or ‘split’ grade, for example 2: Leisurely/Moderate.
