Following an ancient route, we will pedal the rolling hills of Prosecco from Marostica to Conegliano and onto timeless Venice, where the trip culminates in the famously renowned city of canals. En route, we’ll make a foray into Valdobbiadene and perfectly preserved medieval Bassano del Grappa, the region home to radicchio, asparagus, risotto and tiramisu. In this region, the culinary adventures are as extraordinary as the scenery!
