    Dolomites - Venice

    From the 3 crenelates to the city of 1000 bridges

    • Cycling 
break on the way to Venice

      From the northeastern Dolomites, you will cycle through the Höhlensteintal Valley below the famous Drei Zinnen (Three Peaks) to the Olympic city of Cortina d’Ampezzo. On the railway line of the former Dolomite Railway, you will continue to Pieve di Cadore - the birthplace of the famous Titian. The path continues through the valley of the ice cream makers ("Gelati") manufacturers in the Dolomite town of Belluno.

      Through the foothills, the route first goes to Feltre and then on to Bassano del Grappa. From here you will slowly reach the plain. After a short detour to Asolo, the "city of a hundred horizons", the fashion city of Treviso awaits you.

      Along the river Sile you cycle towards the Serenissima - the lagoon city of Venice is a magnificent final destination for your exploration of northern Italy.

      Tour profile/Level:

      The first two days you mainly follow the old Dolomites railway track. From the third day, the tour encounters slight ascents and descents on quite side roads through idyllic landscape and typical Italian villages until reaching the plains on the last day. The tour is suitable for children from the age of 14.

      Day 1: Hochpustertal (Toblach/Niederdorf)

      Individual arrival at the hotel in Hochpustertal. Car parking is near the hotel.

      Day 2: Hochpustertal– Cortina d’Ampezzo, approx. 30 - 35 km

      From Toblach/Niederdorf you start on the bike path into the Höhlenstein Valley, past Toblach lake and the War cemetery. This area was used as the front during the 1st World War. You carry on past lake Dürrensee (on the left you can see the famous Drei Zinnen); the cycle path ascends slightly before you get to the border – Gemärk/ Cimabanche - of the region South Tyrol and the region of the Veneto. From here you cycle towards the south to Cortina.

      Day 3: Cortina d’Ampezzo – Belluno, approx. 75 km

      Today the path is going slightly downwards, for the most part on the old railway track; you will see the Sorapis on the left and located on the right the Cinque Torri (Five Towers). You continue on to the south through the Boite Valley towards Pieve/Calalzo di Cadore. From here the new cycling path takes you to Longarone. This town was completely rebuilt in 1963 after a landslide filled the dam above the village and caused a flood. From Longarone the cycle path is slightly hilly until you reach Belluno.

      Day 4: Belluno - Feltre, approx. 40 km

      From Belluno, the small capital of this province, the tour follows tree lined avenues and hilly landscapes until the end of the day in Feltre. During the day you come along small and scenic villages. In the North you see the magnificent southern Dolomites, your companion for the first stages.

      Day 5: Feltre - Bessano del Grappa, approx. 55 km

      The first kilometres you cycle easily before you descend to the Brenta Valley. Where the river Brenta joins the plains, lies the town of Bassano del Grappa. The name of the town comes from Mount “Monte” Grappa. Upon arrival you can enjoy a well-earned “Grappa”. There are many places of interest to visit in the town such as San Francesco, the "Museo Civico" (museum) or the Piazza della Libertà.

      Day 6: Bassano del Grappa - Treviso, approx. 55 km

      On leaving the Dolomitic Alps, you occasionally see various villas designed by the renowned architect Palladio. The town of Asolo is ideal for a rest before continuing along to the plains to Treviso, the town of the water striders. Along the canals there are many wonderful houses and shops to admire. This is a centre for Italian fashion, especially shoes and famous labels like Benetton.

      Day 7: Treviso - Venice mainland/Mestre, approx. 45 km

      Following the river Sile, you cycle towards the Adriatic Sea straight to Venice (Mainland) where the impressive "Serenissima" can be admired.

      Day 8: Venice (Mestre)

      Individual departure or extended stay.

      I would not recommend this as a first time tour, the route markers are not always there and the tour notes are not easy to follow or understand (I think they might need updating). But the tour is very enjoyable with pleasant scenery, the hotels very comfortable. ...

      Dolomites to Venice tour.

      This was a really enjoyable tour with such a variation in landscape. The red markers en-route made it much easier to follow the directions and the cycle paths were pleasantly quiet. The first hotel was outstanding (hotel Adler) and the food here was absolutely ...
