ELEVATION | 800M | 2600FT

Brilliant ride on undulating roads to the spectacular and romantic city of Verona. We visit the famous Arena, and no visit to Verona would be complete without seeing the balcony from which Romeo wooed his Juliet!

Spectacular day's ride that winds up and down the vine clad hills and wineries of the 'Strada del Prosecco'. A very enjoyable day in the saddle.

DAY NINE FOLLINA LOOP TO SAN BOLDO

A very interesting and spectacular day as we ride over the San Boldo mountain, up the impossibly tight switchbacks of Passo San Baldo to the picturesque countryside towards the Piave river. Two great climbs and glorious views at almost every turn, before a fantastic descent down from Praderadego. There will be much to celebrate at our final dinner!
