Verona Bike Hire - Including Local Transport


Bike Hire

For your self-guided tour you may need a bike hire shop to rent a bike.  Bike hire is available in most of the large towns of the area.  Where bike rental shops' websites exist we have shown them.  Depending on bicycle quality you should expect to pay €7-10 per day although competition may reduce this.  You may even want to use this holiday to try renting a tandem.  
The bike hire shops that are most convenient are in Verona but we have added others as we have discovered them.  Before you approach a hire shop have a look at the advice in our Bike Guide.
  • La Bice E ... , Via San Lucillo, 18, 37139 San Massimo Verona
  • Osteria a la Carega, Cadrega, 8, 37121 Verona
  • Green Line Mobility S.r.l., Vendita e Noleggio Biciclette e Carrelli, Via Trezza Gaetano, 21/C 37129 Verona
  • Los Locos Bike Shop, Lazise, Verona, skype: loslocos06  
Bike rental shops also exist in Venice and Ferrara.

Bike maintenance

During your tour we hope you will not need this, but if you do the hire shops will provide a maintenance service (at a fee) even for each others' bikes, and luckily there are plenty of bike repair shops in the area too.  We list below just a few of these on our route. Check our puncture repair video at MyBikeGuide before you go.  We also recommend a couple of guides on how to repair a bike, one of which is light enough to take with you.

Bike transport

Train and bike

The TrenItalia website is a little difficult to use but the company generally welcomes bikes on trains , allowing them on local trains, although they do levy a charge.  The rules about bikes on “National” trains are both more complicated and more restrictive but they are more flexible if you transport your bike in a bag. Look out for bike symbols on the timetables.

Bus

Buses are based around each of the cities and do not carry bikes.
  • Verona; ATV runs the buses
  • Vicenza FTV runs the buses and the trams
  • Padua (Padova); APV runs the buses and the trams
  • Venice; ACTV runs the buses and the waterbuses.
