Holiday Information

New for 2015, we have added this wonderful self-guided cycling holiday in Italy to our range of family cycling holidays. The trip takes you from the northern shores of Lake Garda to the charming city of Venice. Full to the brim with great riding, you'll be able to check off some wonderful areas of Italy as you ride, including Sirmione, Verona and Chioggia. This is your chance to enjoy a fantastic cycling holiday, giving you an insight into the natural wonders of northern Italy. 
With plenty of free time, this trip is set up to give you the chance to visit the hidden Renaissance gems of the “Belpaese”. Starting on the shores of the beautiful Lake Garda, you will sail away across the lake as a fantastic start to this memorable journey. Continuing by bike you will follow the Po valley, alongside canals, through fields cultivated with fruit and vines, over hills with plenty of time in between to stop and see the sights along the way.
Your route will lead you to Venice, for some sightseeing before you finish your cycling journey with one last ride to Chioggia where you will spend your final evening.
Accommodation during your journey will be in a selection of quality hotels and a warm welcome will be waiting for you on arrival at your first accommodation. This trip is available for daily departures for a minimum of two people. We book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage and provide you with cycling routes and a detailed itinerary. Just contact us with your preferred dates.
