Venice to Porec

Why we love this tour

"Following the Adriatic Sea from Venice into Slovenia and then Croatia! The route is mainly flat with rolling terrain on the last few days. Take the ferry back to Venice after your tour for great flight options home or to extend your stay in Venice."

World heritage architecture, grand piazzas and vaporettos in Venice.

Golden beaches, historic salt mines and holiday hotspots in Slovenia

Pebbly coves, plunging cliffs and lively tourist towns in Croatia

A few days of easy, flat cycling followed by three slightly hillier days

Experience three countries in a week, cycling from the islands of Venice and past the golden beaches of Slovenia, to reach Croatia’s Istrian Peninsula. Start off with a ferry and vaporetto ride in Venice before enjoying a few days of easy cycling along the coastline to colourful towns and pretty piazzas. Cross your second border to Croatia for some slightly hillier cycling, stopping off on route to swim in the Adriatic.

As you ride across green plains and pedal towards the Julian Alps, you’ll pass blue lagoons and sparkling rivers, Roman towns and historic fishing huts, plus one of Northern Italy’s most important archaeological ruins. Slovenia’s top beach resorts, historic salt mines and wildlife rich wetlands are something to look forward to towards the end of the tour and the Croatian town of Porec is a lively place to finish – don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to stay longer.
