Tour from the mountain city of Innsbruck in Austria to the medieval streets of Verona in Italy cycling mainly on one of the most beautiful cycle paths in Italy. Riding downhill past the ancient villages and green meadows of South Tyrol, the cycling is easygoing and there are plenty of opportunities for breaks along the way. The Baroque castles, ornate cathedrals and mountain fortresses you'll pass make beautiful settings for a snack stop, and a leisurely stretch alongside the Adige River takes you to the sparkling shores of Lake Garda, where you can rest your legs with a ferry cruise across the water.

Each medieval village and historic market town you visit on the way from Innsbruck to Verona tells a different story – the wine village of Ora, the romantic arcades of Egna and the 1100 year old town of Bressone are just a handful of the highlights.
