North Italy cycling holiday, Verona, Bassano & Trento
Description of North Italy cycling holiday, Verona, Bassano & Trento
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThe bike is such a simple thing, right? Well, we truly believe it is a great and democratic ingredient to make our world better!
Cycling holidays are environmentally friendly as the bikes do not create pollution: you are your own energy. You will not even create noise pollution: together with walking, it is a real silent way to travel. We say, you enter the landscape on tiptoe.
This ring tour departs and arrives in Verona, which has good train connection to bigger Italian cities. Public transport is a sustainable way to move!
Even if there are no major Natural Park touched by this route, expect green surroundings and a variety of landscapes.
Several villages are worth a visit: Verona and Vicenza are Unesco heritage sites; Montagnana is one of the nicest "borgo" of Italy, as it is San Giorgio di Valpolicella (which needs a short detour form the itinerary). Marostica and Levico Terme are recognized by the TCI (Touring Club Italia) as beautiful villages. These titles aim to direct travelers to valid and undiscovered tourist destinations.
PeopleAs a local tour operator from Italys North East, we aim to promote a slow way of traveling so our guests can discover all the hidden places in-between the main attractions of our territory.
We plan the itineraries so to avoid tourist traps. The bike is an excellent way to do it: we stick on bike paths and secondary roads, we reach small villages, countryside companies and farmhouses, which suffer (and love!) the fact of being located out of the mass tourist routes.
We sustain local family businesses (such as wineries, hotels, farms ). Either we include the services in the packages, or we suggest nice visits listing quality partners in the road book. In this tour we'll stay at a family run Hotel, sensitive to active/ bike tourism.
No tastings nor visits are included, but on the road book you'll read good suggestions about local wineries (possibly organic), osterias (small informal restaurants), less-known monuments and interesting cultural locations, which are often managed by non-profit association. By working with these businesses we are able to provide income and jobs for the community.
