The Austrian stretch


The trip starts in Salzburg, a lovely town in a superb pre-alpine setting. Located at the northern boundary of the Alps, the mountains to the south make a striking contrast with the rolling plains to the north. The town has the best pastry shops. Sacher torte and apfelstrudel fear no competition



Großglockner is, at 3798 m. asl,


Austria's highest mountain. The Pasterze, Austria's biggest glacier lies at Großglockner's foot. Also famous is the scenic road between Heiligenblut and Fusch, built between 1930 and 1935, which reaches 2572 m.
17 switchbacks and an average of 9,8% grade


The
Dolomites great passes
Experience a spectacular cycling through the landscapes of awesome Dolomiti Mountains. Choose your own comfortable pace as you challenge the most historic switchback climbs of the Giro d'Italia including the fearsome Pordoi and SellaPasso! Ride in the shadows of jagged pink granite peaks while enjoying deluxe country inns and world-class Italian cuisine.


Cortina

Enjoy a relax day in Cortina, the capital of the Dolomites, its chic boutiques and cafes. However if you cannot spend a day without cycling there is always an extra pass to be enjoyed instead!


Descending into the hills


Down from the high mountains into softer land: vineyards covered hills, somptuous venitian villas, with frescoes by famous painters, typical villages with friendly market squares, and beautiful abbeys. We reach the coast in Iesolo, close to Venice airport and spend the night there.

Reaching Venice

A boat transfer will take you to the major attractions in Venice. This is not a city for bikes; take a gondola tour instead!
