Alps Adria Villach - Grado

From Villach to Grado

The starting point of this bicycle holiday is Villach, located on the border of the Klagenfurt-basin, at the confluence of the rivers „Drau“ and „Gail“. Very soon you will have to say goodbye to Austria, before the bicycle tour continues to Italy. The region Friuli-Venezia Giulia doesn’t only offer scenic variety, but also invites you to a foray through the cultural variety of the region. This mixture of the cultures reflects itself also in the cuisine: Alpine- Austrian, Slovenian and Venetian influences characterise the gastronomic offer of the region. Moving on from the peaks of the Carnic Alps you cycle on the south side of the Alps approaching the sea, towards the Adriatic Coast with its miles long sandy beaches.

TOUR PROFILE: The tour from Villach to Grado is an easy tour. It goes along bike paths or very quiet side roads, through small villages and picturesque landscape. The tour is suitable for children over 14 years.


Tour description

DAY 1: ARRIVAL IN VILLACH

Individual arrival at the starting hotel in Villach. Parking place close to the hotel availabe.

DAY 2: Villach - TARVISIO / CAMPOROSSO (APPROX. 40 KM)

Following the river Gail, you leave Villach behind you and say goodbye to Austria. In the three-nation triangle of Italy-Austria-slovenia the valley „Kanaltal“ is extending, whose centre is the Italian border town of Tarvisio. Here Austrians, Slovenes, Friulians and Italians have been living together for hundreds of years, and all three major European language families – Germans, Romans and Slavs – meet here directly.

DAY 3: TARVISIO / CAMPOROSSO - MOGGIO UDINESE / TOLMEZZO / VENZONE (APPROX. 55 KM)

Tarvisio, a small town surrounded by wide valleys and wood, in a modern garb, with an old soul and full of traditions, is today the starting point of your cycle tour. It is not only one of the most important mountain resorts of Friuli- Venezia Giulia, but also one of the most known winter sport centre in the region. Continuing through the valley of „Kanaltal“ you can admire the beauties of the Friulian Alpine from the saddle, with intact, untouched nature and vast, intact forests.

The little city of Gemona del Friuli which is located on the southern exit of the valley „Kanaltal“ and on the foothills of the Julian Alps is one of the most beautiful historic towns of the region. The townscape is characterised by the majestic cathedral „Santa Maria Assunta“ which is certainly worth a visit. The wine determines today’s stage. Hills full of grapevines line your path and invite you to taste some good wines. The Venetian influenced Udine exudes calm and prudence. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the „Piazza“ or stroll through the city centre and admire important Gothic and Renaissance buildings.
