  • BOLZANO - VERONA

     

    Individual tour
    7 days/6 nights - about 235 km by bike

    Is it the beauty of the landscape? Or the Italian easiness? The cultural diversity? The unique climate? The partly Mediterranean vegetation? The wonderful mountain background? In any case, there is a magic magnetism coming from this north Italian landscape.

    short ascents before St. Pauls and to the Montiggler Lakes, otherwise flat. Many bike paths and country lanes; short connecting passages via roads with more traffic.
