This incredible cycle route follows ancient trade routes and will lead you from the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck to the Festival City of Verona. Utilizing old railroad tracks and dam pathways that have been converted into modern cycle paths for most of the route, you can enjoy the impressive towns and mountain views almost without being disturbed by any traffic. There are some great cities such as Brixen, Bolzano, and Trento that are sure to provide cultural highlights on the way!
The landscape at the Brenner Pass, at 1,370 meters of altitude, is almost alpine, and in Brixen beautiful orchards and quaint vineyards dominate the scenery. At the Salurner Klause you will enter "real" Italy. From here you will experience Mediterranean flora and fauna. This beautiful bike tour is sure to offer a lot of variety - whether it is nature, culture, or cuisine you wish to experience; this tour has something to offer for everyone!
