The Prosecco region—Italy’s sparkling gem—is a paradise for foodies and wine aficionados alike. That’s why we made it the setting of our week-long guided bike tour, a summer adventure that will take us through endless vineyards, quiet villages, and all the way to the Adriatic Sea. We’ll explore the birthplace of the beloved prosecco wine, taste authentic Italian dishes, and take our time exploring this wonder of a region. The starting point is the medieval Treviso, the endpoint is the bustling seaside resort of Jesolo in Venice lagoon, and in between there’s just postcard-worthy views, every day, all day. You’ll lose track of how many times we’ll toast and say cin cin!

Itinerary

Let’s saddle up for a 7-day adventure through Italy’s Prosecco paradise! We’ll start in Treviso, a marvelous town with picturesque canals, then we’ll cycle through the Veneto region of northeastern Italy, and end our journey in Jesolo, a vibrant seaside town. We take care of everything, you just do cycling and tasting. Accommodation, expert guiding, airport and luggage transfers, as well as most meals are included, making sure that you have a carefree and relaxing vacation. We’ll celebrate life and Italy every day and we’ll toast to it with prosecco!

  • Following your arrival in Venice Airport, we’ll transfer as a group to the charming town of Treviso (30-minute ride). With its meandering waterways and a tranquil atmosphere, it’s a wonderful starting point. There should be time to explore the town before enjoying an evening meal in one of the great local restaurants. With a glass of bubbles in hand, we’ll discuss the days to come and provide you with all the information you’ll need for the duration of your trip.

    Accommodation: 3 or 4-star hotel

    Treviso, town in Italy
  • Leaving Treviso behind us, we’ll ride past the countryside towards the Montello hills, sitting below the Piave River. This area was home to battles during the Austria-Hungarian war, and there’s a monument below the hill commemorating the event. Time permitting, we’ll take a quick detour to the ruins of Sant’Eustachio Abbey before we embark on a great route in the foothills of the Montello. This tree-lined water course is a classic ride for locals!

    On route to Asolo, we’ll admire the imposing Palladian Villa of Maser. Now part of UNESCO World Heritage, it’s one of the most admired works by Venetian architect Palladio. Following a quick refuel, we’ll be ready for the only real climb of the day, the ride up to Asolo. Designated as one of the most beautiful towns in Italy due to its position on the top of the hill, Asolo has always been a magnet for artists and writers. Following a drink and a stroll around town and the main piazza, the last section of our ride is a sweeping descent to our hotel.

    Accommodation: 3 or 4-star hotel
    Meals: Breakfast and lunch
    Distance: 28 miles / 45 km
    Ascent: 985 ft / 300 m

    Asolo, hilltop town in Italy
  • The route today will take us out towards the Piave River, cycling through the rolling hills of Ezzelini and the Colli Asolani. Once we’ve crossed the Piave River, we’ll find ourselves surrounded by lush vineyards, and it’ll be clear we’ve entered the heart of the Prosecco region.

    The route to Follina and Valmarino will follow the higher road from Valdobbiadene, with Prosecco vineyards extending on the steep hills below us. On arrival at our accommodation, our host will welcome us with a glass of one of the best Prosecco wines, on the house, from the vineyards we have just cycled through. Nothing like a refreshing local wine that’s been produced within 20 kms of your accommodation!

    Valdobbiadene in Italy
  • Today’s ride is quintessential Prosecco! The riding starts along a valley separated by the high Monti dei Visentini and the lush rolling hills of Prosecco. Then we’ll start climbing, with woods giving way to vineyard after vineyard, with many stops for pics while meandering up and down the valleys. Stopping at Molinetto della Croda is a must, with a water mill set below a picturesque waterfall.

    Looping west through Compea, we’ll find endless vineyards, with over 100 wine producers – Including Conegliano Valdobbiadene producing Prosecco Superiore DOCG, and the exclusive DOCG Cartizze sparkling wine. Following lunch, we’ll continue our ride towards Follina and its Abbey before returning to our accommodation. There’s an optional 15-mile (25 km) ride in the afternoon, along the valley to small lakes near Ravine, Lago di St Maria and Lago di Lago. We’ll loop around the lakes, so feel free to go for a dip and soak up the sun.

    Prosecco valley in Italy
  • Time to say goodbye to this amazing area and ride back to Treviso! As we ride south, we’ll take a route that leads us past medieval castles. The first castle of Collalto di Susegana, whose tower and bastions remain after WWI bombings, and then we’ll move onto Castello di San Salvatore, whose imposing walls and towers tell a tale of great imposing dominance in the region.

    As we head back to Nervesa della Battaglia, the route heads south through the countryside back to Treviso, where we can enjoy an evening meal together.

    Accommodation: 3 or 4-star hotel
    Meals: Breakfast and lunch
    Distance: 31 miles / 50 km
    Ascent: 985 ft / 300 m

    Cycling on quiet roads of Prosecco
  • Today we’ll make our way to the bustling seaside resort of Jesolo. Setting off from Treviso, we’ll follow the Greenway, a route that follows the course of the river Sile to the Caigo tower. This lovely river-side trail goes through lush green woods, past small inlets thriving with river bird life, watermills, castles, and small villages. We can stop in villages to explore and enjoy a coffee break.

    After crossing the lock at Portegrandi, the cycle path enters the lagunar eaves, which runs for 11 km until the Sile flows into the old Piave at Caposile. We’ll finally reach Jesolo and enjoy our final stretch along a canal lined with traditional fishing huts, leading us down to the busy coastal resort area—just in time for celebratory drinks! We’ll then jump in the support van for a quick whisk back to Treviso for our final night together.

    Terrain and roads

      • This tour is ideal for those looking for an easy going route. The route uses a variety of roads (including both single lanes and quiet double roads) and cycle paths (some paved, some gravel).
      • Approx. 85% of the route is on roads shared with vehicle traffic (some with a separated cycle lane), with around 5% of the route on mixed use paths (cyclists, pedestrians, but no motor traffic). Most roads are quiet, but there will be some busier roads, especially when cycling through built up areas and bigger towns like Treviso and Jesolo.
      • Prosecco is a hilly region, so short climbs and descents can be expected. Day 4 will pose the biggest challenge with undulations throughout the day.
      • Hybrid bikes are recommended for this tour. Gravel and e-bikes are also suitable. E-bikes will make the cheeky climbs a bit more manageable! It’s also a good option when it comes to the warm summer months. E-bikes are generally heavier than hybrid bikes, which is worth bearing in mind if needing to lift the bike up or down steps or over cobbles in some of the towns.
  • Here’s what you’ll need:

      • Bike — available to rent
      • Helmet — available to rent
      • Comfortable, season-appropriate riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture wicking or synthetic material
      • Padded shorts
      • Peaked helmet
      • Sneakers or sport shoes
      • Breathable outside layer or jacket
      • Sunglasses
      • Plenty of water, water bottle or hydration bladder
      • Daypack with snacks
      • Biking gloves are optional but recommended
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)

    Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

  • Indeed you can! If you don’t own a suitable bike or would prefer to skip the hassle of bringing your own bike to Italy, your guides offer bike rental. Rental bikes come with a tool kit, a spare inner tube, a bike lock, and a bike pump. Helmets can also be provided upon request.

    Hybrid bikes are recommended for this Prosecco bike tour (and these will typically be Cross Travel hybrid bikes), though e-bikes (typically Lombardo Roma 9.0 or equivalent) and gravel bikes are also suitable. E-bikes will come in hand for some cheekier climbs or long stretches.

    You can add bike rentals to your booking upon checkout.

  • Group sizes and pricing

      • For this Prosecco bike tour, the maximum group size is generally set to 14 participants.
      • It takes a minimum of 6 people for this tour to operate.
      • There will be between 1 and 3 guides on this tour, depending on the group size.

    Prosecco bike tours can be arranged for larger groups. Contact us to make arrangements.

    Min. age requirements

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Children as young as 10 are able to go on trips with a legal guardian. They may be able to participate on a case-by-case basis.

    If your group has riders under the age of 18, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

  • The starting point of your Prosecco bike tour is Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE). That’s where your guides will come meet you and transfer you to the charming town of Treviso. They will also take you back to the airport on the final day of the trip (if you’d like).

    Please check with your guides prior to making any travel arrangements to ensure that a minimum number of participants has been reached. That’s when you can also make flight arrangements to fit with the scheduled airport transfers. Please note that if you make travel arrangements outside the scheduled transfer windows, there may be an additional charge for individual transfers.

  • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance.

    With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more. Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans.

    We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to. If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!
