Verona Route


The bike route is anti- or counter-clockwise from Verona, with optional detours to Venice and Vicenza, and  is designed to acclimatise you to the peaceful quiet of the open fields to the south before the more interesting cities to the north.  We have marked the castles and walled cities on the map and local train services are close by throughout the ride.  There are many alternative rides in the area, including on the long distance bike paths which pass through Ferrara to the south.  You can find out more about these from Verona Bike.  The Euganian hills rise out of nowhere and are pretty steep but very small and so great fun to traverse, although you may prefer to explore them on day trips rather than taking your luggage with youVajotwo Common License.  Local tourist information offices are hard to find but they will provide information on other bike routes in the area. 

 

Accommodation on the route just to the south of Vicenza is spread out but is still feasible.  Accommodation elsewhere on the route is easier to find but, given the popularity of this area, finding somewhere to stay at short notice can be difficult in high summer. The accommodation column below provides an indication of the number of hotels or similar in each village/town.  The colour of the first column shows the main route in blue to the south and green to the north with the Vicenza detour in purple and the Venice detour in red.
