Departure 03-07 August 2019
Online from 12 August 2019The weather was good, the road was good and the cycling was great. Sometimes it was interesting to instruct the GPS to run where there is no road. Both paved and cobblestones were fun.
We want to come again!!!
Departure 20-24 April 2019
Online from 08 May 2019Bell'itinerario! La tappa più sorprendente è stata la scoperta di Vicenza, davvero meravigliosa e di Bassano del Grappa, graziosa e vivace
Departure 09-13 September 2018
Online from 25 September 2018Tour rilassante, percorso adatto a tutti, organizzazione efficiente e ottima assistenza
Departure 19-23 August 2017
Online from 30 August 2017Ci siamo divertiti molto senza avere nessuna preoccupazione organizzativa: buoni gli alberghi, indicazioni chiare e dettagliate del percorso, efficiente il trasporto bagagli. Le prime due tappe sono state più appassionanti della terza, che, dopo il primo tratto molto suggestivo, è risultata un po’ noiosa e con lunghi tratti di sterrato. Esperienza sicuramente da ripetere!
