Description

Cycling Tour in the land of Prosecco.
Enjoying a weekend on two wheels in the Prosecco hills is an incredible experience! Cycling is certainly the best way to enjoy the beauty of these hills covered by lush vineyards framed to the north by the Alps and to the south by the plain where the Piave River flows.
A land full of charm, history and art that testifies to the millenary past awaits you: ancient castles, aristocratic villas, monuments, but also places and cellars where the locals keep tradition and the pleasure of hospitality alive.
Here viticulture has ancient roots: the first written evidence of Prosecco dates back to 1772 and today, even if sparkling wines are widespread everywhere in Italy, only the products born from the grapes of this particular region, with their floral and fruity scent, can bear the name “Prosecco”.
Since 2019 the extraordinary universal value of the “Hills of Prosecco di Conegliano e Valdobbiadene” has been recognized by UNESCO, which promotes the maintenance of the vineyards, Conegliano Valdobbiadene for the production of Prosecco Superiore DOCG.

 

ITINERARY

Day 1: Individual Arrival in Follina/Revine Lago

Day 2: Tour dei Castelli with wine tasting in the cellar (68 km)
After just two km from Follina you can already admire the majestic Castle of Castel Brando in Cison di Valmarino, before cycling on towards Vittorio Veneto following the road to Conegliano. We set off again to reach the castle of San Salvatore in Susegana, beautiful and still inhabited, surrounded by magnificent vineyards. Do not miss the opportunity of a pleasant stop at the Caldella estates for a food and wine tasting proposed by Flavio Vanzella, former professional cyclist, time trial world champion and yellow jersey at the Tour De France. A few kilometers and you will be in front of the Castle of Collalto. From here a transfer will take you back to the hotel.

Day 3: Asolo – Bassano (55-70 km approx)
Today you`ll leave the hotel in the direction of Col San Martino and then continue towards Vidor crossing the bridge over the Piave river, the river sacred to the Fatherland during the First World War. From here, following all the secondary roads, up and down the Castelli di Monfumo, you will reach the splendid city of Asolo, city of the Cento Orizzonti where nature and man`s works merge with great harmony;  its Fortress, symbol of the city, situated on the top of Monte Ricco. To this already splendid atmosphere you can add the beautiful Venetian villas  along the way, the result of the skill  of great architects, first of all Andrea Palladio from Vicenza. From Asolo you will descend towards Pagnano and Romano d’Ezzelino until you reach the destination, Bassano Del Grappa. Here you can visit the interesting Poli Museum dedicated to Grappa. Speaking of emotions: a photo with your bike on the Ponte degli Alpini in Bassano del Grappa is a must in your memory album.

Day 4: Prosecco, tour with tasting (about 75 km). Departure
Even today you will discover one of the most famous and important areas of Italy in terms of enology. You will immerse yourself in that strip of land covered by the Prosecco hills, the true heart of wine culture, where “everything” is vineyard. You will see a succession of landscapes, distant horizons, vineyards, history, art, emotions that leave you amazed at every turn. After a short climb that leads you to Refrontolo, go down towards Solighetto. From the centre of Col San Martino follow the road towards Colbertaldo to climb towards Valdobbiadene, the wine city par excellence, the capital of Prosecco together with Conegliano. On the way back towards Guia stop in a typical Osteria for a tasting of typical local products accompanied by a glass of Prosecco. Return downhill to Follina enjoying a breathtaking view of the vineyards of Santo Stefano.

Individual departure; possibility to book an overnight stay at the end of the stage and extend your stay.
