Discover 5 cycling routes in the beautiful regions of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, among nature, history and breathtaking landscapes.

Sailing with Houseboat Holidays Italia is an immersive experience in Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia.

At a time when slow and sustainable tourism is becoming increasingly popular, cruising the tranquil waters of the Veneto and Friuli regions and combining the experience with bike explorations allows you to discover lesser-known but incredibly beautiful corners. Here are 5 cycling itineraries that you cannot miss!

GiraSile: Breathing in History and Nature

The Girasile takes you along the banks of the River Sile, the longest resurgence river in Europe. Let yourself be enchanted by the landscapes among cities of art, nature areas, and Veneto villas. Start your journey near the historic centre of Treviso, following the cycle path and passing by the Port of Fiera and the hydroelectric power station of Silea. Don't forget to take a break to contemplate the burci cemetery, a resting place for ancient trading boats, and Casier and Lughignano, small villages where history and tradition merge into a timeless embrace.

 

 

Between Sea and Lagoon: The Islands of Venice

The islands of Venice are a real gem. Cycling between Lido di Venezia and Pellestrina, you will have the Adriatic Sea on one side and the lagoon on the other. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the historic centre of Chioggia, characterised by its unique fishbone structure.

The Casoni of Caorle: A Dive into Literature

Pedalling through the waters of the Venetian lagoon, you can discover the Casoni of Caorle, ancient constructions used by fishermen. An area so evocative that it even inspired the great writer Ernest Hemingway in his novel "Across the River in the Trees". Here, nature reigns supreme and the bicycle is the ideal means of exploring it in total relaxation!

Vallevecchia: The Gentle Soul of Veneto

Cycle along the paths through Vallevecchia, a nature reserve where the green of the pine forests meets the blue of the sea. This area, between inland lakes and sand dunes, offers varied and evocative views. Continuing towards Bibione, you can stop and visit the Vallevecchia Nature Education Centre, to learn more about this delicate ecosystem, and reach this oasis of peace by crossing the cycle bridge. With a bit of luck, you might even spot some of the many species of birds that inhabit the area.

Grado and its Oases: Between Flora and Fauna

The FVG2 cycle route takes you through the Cavanata Valley Nature Reserve. Cycle along the coast, past the picturesque fishing village of Punta Sdobba, to the Cona Island and the Foce dell'Isonzo Nature Reserve. Tip: spring and autumn are the ideal seasons for spotting many bird species.

Always remember to respect the environment and the places you visit. And after an intense day of cycling, what better way to relax than on board your houseboat, perhaps sipping a glass of local wine (link wine article) and the gastronomic delicacies that these territories offer?
