      About this trip

      Your self-guided tour takes place in wonderful low-key tourism routes in the Veneto region.

      Two of its highlights (and the main reasons that prompted us to design this tour) gave name to the itinerary: Grappa and Prosecco. As iconic as those are, most people would find it challenging to point them out on a map, but that is one of the many things you’ll find out by joining Grappa and Prosecco bike tour.

      History comes alive for us every day, starting with our warmup in the town of Citadella with its beautifully-preserved village center and defensive walls that catapult us back to the Middle Ages. From there, the battles and the implications of WWI are palpable in Bassano del Grappa, Asolo and crossing the Piave River. Hemingway, during his days as an ambulance driver in the war, spent many days in Bassano and his time there served as an inspiration for his novel, A Farewell to Arms.

      As we enter the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Superiore Prosecco winemaking area, we learn about the ancient origins of wine making, and how the reputation and qualities of the wine have evolved throughout the centuries. Then, there is the mighty influence of the Republic of Venice (697–1797). While the towns we visit might very well predate Roman times, the Venetians are the ones who left their mark, from architecture to cuisine to customs.

      The riding is just as varied and dramatic as the history, from the challenging climb up the imposing Mount Grappa, to the hilly terrain of Prosecco with constant ups and downs that provide never-ending photo ops.

      Fantastic trip with 3 great guides (Beepe, Renato and Dario). The Puglia region was magnificent and so varying between the various towns and places we stayed at. Locoronto, and especially Alberobello and Matera were magical. The dinners were outstanding. Bryan and Bryan Fitzpatrick

      We had the best time. It was my first cycling travel experience and I enjoyed it fully thanks to the great planning and organizing by Beppe, and our helpful and resourceful guides. We were a group of friends and they contributed to making our vacation memorable. What a wonderful way to discover the real essence of a region without getting lost or being part of a tourist herd. The ebike is a fantastic way to avoid stressful climbs and roll happily!

      Amazing experience. Bikes were fantastic and the bike routes even more so as we saw beautiful countryside and with timely, delicious stops for cappuccino and lunch. Alessandro, our tour guide was especially helpful and accommodating and made our trip very special. He was an invaluable resource for recommendations and his expert knowledge of the area. Grazie mille Allesandro and the Tourissimo team! We are already thinking about our next bike trip with you!!

      We had a wonderful trip. Well organized, guides were passionate, knowledgeable and helpful. Always wanting to help out. Accommodations were fantastic and the places we visited along the way were perfect. The views were outstanding. Travelling and visiting all the while cycling was the way to go. The cycling was not too intense, yet enough to feel great. The pace of the itinerary was wonderful. Thank you!
