Tip no. 2: A day tour along the Alpe-Adria cycle route

A recommendation from the pros: During a stay in the Gailtal and Gitschtal Valley, you should visit the Alpe-Adria cycle route at least once! To get there, take the bike bus to the Austrian-Italian border in Thörl-Maglern! From there, you’ll continue for about 65 kilometres on your two-wheeler. The trail leads you through Val Canale all the way to the medieval town of Venzone. Explore the so-called “lavender city” with its unique town walls before taking the bike bus back to Gailtal Valley!

You can’t get enough? Very ambitious cyclists can just keep pushing the pedals until they get to Grado and the Adriatic Sea.
