An absolutely unique cycling route in every way, entwined with fresh waterways, lagoon, sun, sea, beautiful scenery and you on your bike. All of these are winning elements for the most amazing two days of your life, scenic surprise waiting for you at every turn combined with the local food and wine delicacies along the way.
Strategic town of Quarto d’Altino is the focal point for this route between the river and the lagoon. On the first day you will go towards the beautifully preserved medieval town of Treviso, still hustling and bustling with city life. On the second day, you will go in the opposite direction towards the Venetian lagoon and the Adriatic Sea, enjoying the view of the lagoon slowly unfolding in front of your eyes as you progress towards the sea.
River Sile Natural Park and Venetian Lagoon, two inseparable, yet completely different natural environments will make this route unforgettable.
DAY 1- FROM QUARTO D'ALTINO TO TREVISO (and back): The route is along the banks of the picturesque river Sile and its numerous meanders. The nature you will encounter is inextricably connected with people and places which have been part of the river for centuries. You will come across the “Burci” graveyards, traditional Venetian transport barges used for hundreds of years, and still visible after being submerged in the river for decades, proudly reminding passersby of its close connection with “La Serenissima”.
Cycling path leading towards the medieval city of Treviso is on a flat terrain, separate from the main roads and is traffic free. On the way back you will have a chance to enjoy the route with abundance of colours in the late afternoon.
Departure advisable in the morning between 9.30am /10.00am
DAY 2- FROM QUARTO D'ALTINO TOWARDS the SEA :
Once again Sile Natural Park will welcome you, but this time towards the Venetian Lagoon and the Adriatic sea, along the flat, traffic free cycling path. Going all the way towards the sea you will reach white beaches and enjoy well-deserved spritz before wrapping up for the day and returning to Quarto d’Altino. Return can be organized either directly in association with Travelsport or separately by regular public transport.
Departure advisable in the morning around 9.30am /10.00am
Extra Tip - after second day, you may also book accommodation in the sea towns of Jesolo, Cavallino, Punta Sabbioni or Venezia and spend an extra evening near the beach.
