FROM THE DOLOMITES TO VENICE – SISTERHOOD

21-27 September 2024

OVERVIEW

PA-Cycling launches SISTERHOOD, our new travel division by women, for women. We start with a really amazing trip:

Imagine cycling from the Altopiano di Asiago, on its impressive dirt roads dating back to the World War I era, down to the Venice lagoon. From the Alps to the most beautiful city in the world…Venice! It will be the trip of a lifetime!
Move between forest trails and dirt roads, from cycle paths along placid rivers to secondary roads with countless opportunities to stop for wine & food tasting, all the time discovering century-old villages and cities where you can taste the best of Italian lifestyle.

Visit the walled city of Marostica and Bassano del Grappa with its world-famous spirit. Cycle across Asolo, selected as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, and continue along the Prosecco wine hills up to the beautiful city of Treviso. Not far away you’ll encounter the lagoon where you’ll discover Lio Maggiore, a land of fishermen and farmers, and cross the sandbank on one of the most beautiful cycle paths in Europe. On the last day you will have the opportunity to visit Burano, the Venetian island famous for the bright colors of its houses and its delicious pastries.

You can also rent a gravel bike or e-bike with us, and it will be waiting for you at the beginning of the trip, so you can travel light and without worrying about the bike transportation.
