Dolomites, Lake Garda & Venice Ride 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 Few landscapes in Europe match the unique beauty of the jagged limestone Dolomites. Our route starts with incredible views of Trentino's dramatic mountains as we cycle on tranquil roads and paths along the Adige River. Once at Lake Garda we board a ferry and enjoy a relaxing cruise down the centre of Italy's most beautiful lake. We continue cycling through quaint towns, vineyards and the charming cities of Verona, Vicenza and Padova before stopping just outside Venice. From here we can explore the labyrinth of bridges, canals and waterways of this fascinating old city.
