Trip at a Glance
Day by Day Breakdown
Leaving Treviso after an optional visit to the beautiful Pinarello flagship store, there is a first taste of the hills in the Montello, before visiting neighboring Montebelluna, the sport-shoe mecca of Italy. A last climb up to Asolo and it's time for evening drinks in the ‘town of 100 views’.
The morning starts with a visit to picturesque Bassano del Grappa, before looping back and passing through Romano d’Ezzelino and other quaint towns dotted along the base of the Monte Grappa. After a climb up to the Canova monument in Possagno, the route crosses the river and heads up to the town of Valdobbiadene, ground zero of Prosecco winemaking. The evening is yours to sample the wine that has made Valdobbiadene famous.
Leaving Valdobbiadene, our goal for the day is the Passo San Boldo, a 7 km climb on the far end of the Prosecco Valley. Not the hardest or longest climb in the area, but arguably one of the most spectacular feats of road engineering in the world.
The routes to and from the San Boldo are both stunning, and there will be plenty of time to recover in advance of the event coming tomorrow. For those who want a lighter ride, there is a shorter option up to the charming town of nearby Milies.
Enjoy the peerless Prosecco Cycling event as it snakes its way through the heart of the Prosecco Hills, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Ride through some stunning scenery, tackle a few climbs, and enjoy a glass or two of the bubbly stuff along the way. The CyclingHero team will be on hand to help with any last-minute requirements before the start, and also at the finish to take part in the festivities.
After a last breakfast, it’s time to head back to Venice for your trip home or further explorations in the area.
