Discover Sile river by bike

30km of the magnificent trail following the river Sile from Treviso to Quarto d’Altino in the heart of the River Sile Natural Park. Travelsport designed an authentic road-book which will guide you along the way with the unique stories and anecdotes of this historic waterways.

River ports, watermills, boat graveyard, Venetian villas and taverns, coots and mallards will accompany you on this wonderful cycling journey.

Cycling path is on a flat terrain, without vehicle traffic: starting and finishing points are nearby public transport stops (train and/or bus). A trail fully immersed in a nature without any traffic disturbance.

At Treviso Centrale train station you will get on a bike and Travelsport staff will give you all necessary equipment (safety helmet, bike panniers, repair kit, bike lock and a roadbook).

Immediately you will have a chance to explore a charming Treviso city center, have a cappuccino at “Piazza dei Signori”, just before embarking on Sile’s Greenway cycling path (125km long from start to finish).

Some 15km later, you will reach a picturesque river town of Casier and “Trattoria al Sile” (closed on Wednesdays),  an ideal spot to taste local food and wine and have a well-deserved lunch. (lunch is not included in the price).

In the afternoon, you will continue with the second part of the route from Casier to Quarto d’Altino which will become even greener, with the most amazing flora and fauna. Each meander will depict a new story, filled with the abundance of waterfowls, trees leaning into to the water and the most beautiful river scenery imagined.

After passing through Casale sul Sile, another beautiful riverside town famous for its dominant Watchtower,  you will reach a  delightful hamlet of Musestre, situated a few hundred meters from your final destination.

Return from Quart d’Altino can be by train (via Mestre to Treviso or directly to Venice), or by a regular coach service to either Treviso or sea town of Jesolo.
