DAY 1: Tour begins in Venice, Italy

Highlights: The Lido of Venice, dinner at a trattoria

Welcome to Venezia! You really should try and come a day or two early to explore this unique city before we begin our bike ride to Pisa. We meet this afternoon at our hotel on the Lido of Venice where we'll fit bicycles. We'll enjoy an introductory aperitif before walking to dinner in a small trattoria on the Lido.

DAY 2: Bicycle Venice to Po River Delta

Highlights: Venetian lagoon, fishing villages, bicycle along the Po Delta

The Lidos of Venice and Pellestrina protect the Venetian lagoon from the Adriatic Sea. Today, you’ll follow these natural levees as you pedal your way south via flat roads, ferries, and quaint fishing villages. Stop for lunch in Chioggia, the "other" Venice of the lagoon, before pedaling southwest towards San Martino di Venezze.

**For spring 2023 departures we are not able to bike on Pellestrina due to navigation restrictions. This will reduce the mileage by about 9 km (5 miles) for this day.

DAY 3: San Martino di Venezze to Ferrara

Highlights: Bicycle along the Po River, bicycle capital of Italy--Ferrara

Enjoy a day of leisurely riding all the way to the Renaissance city of Ferrara. Pedal along canals in the vast Northern plain of Italy. Enjoy a coffee in the sleepy city of Rovigo. The entrance into Ferrara is spectacular. You will ride directly under the finest example of Renaissance walls remaining in Italy to discover other highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage town including many palaces of the Este court from the 14th and 15th century.

DAY 4: Ravenna

Highlights: Comacchio, lunch at farm cooperative, mosaics of Ravenna

This morning we will shuttle to the nearby lagoon town of Comacchio, this old port town was once more famous than Venice. We encourage you to visit the museum that features a Roman boat and stroll around the canals, we'll journey across the "valleys of Comacchio", through the Po Delta's rich bird habitats. Then it’s on to the Anita di Argenta where we'll stop at a local agriturismo (farm cooperative), to enjoy a lunch of local specialties including homegrown vegetables, homemade ricotta and eels. We'll then ride a short distance to Ravenna, the last capital of the Western Roman Empire and home to more early-Christian mosaics than any other city in Western Europe. Spend the afternoon exploring this city’s great history as your hotel is walking distance from all the highlights including: Dante's Tomb, the mosaics of San Vitale, Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, and the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia.

DAY 5: Ravenna to Faenza

Highlights: Picnic lunch at ExperiencePlus! new headquarters, "The Hub," and ceramics of Faenza

We'll head west from Ravenna today, stopping at "the Hub" on our way into Faenza for a light lunch together. "The Hub" is our European headquarters, the heartbeat of all tour operations. After lunch we visit a local ceramist who will introduce us to traditional Faenza designs. Dinner, if you are still hungry, is on your own!

We head into the Apennines today. We will pass through the medieval village of Brisighella for an olive oil tasting in one of Italy's most unique olive oil producing areas and then we'll then begin climbing (easily at first!) over the Apennines. Enjoy the varying scenery as it changes dramatically when you leave the plains and enter the mountains. Just before we reach the toughest part of our climb to Ronta, there is a conveniently located train station which allows you to jump on or keep pedaling to your destination!

We'll ride into town together, and the rest of the afternoon is yours to explore this capital of Renaissance Italy. Our hotel lies on the banks of the Arno River, close to the Uffizi Gallery.

    Rob B., Afton, MN

    Marvin D., Denver, CO

    Mary M., Madison Lake, MN
  • Thank you for a fantastic trip!

    Jeannine M., Rochester, MI
  • Overall the tour was fabulous and way beyond my high expectations. The accommodations and food were excellent. There were a number of things that were over the top. The lunch at the Malpezzi farm was outstanding and we really appreciated the food, the large amount of work that went into the preparation, and the opportunity to see how pasta is made (and to make some). Much to our surprise we were assigned to the penthouse suite on the beach stay as the honeymoon couple. We were on the sixth floor with a view of the ocean and beach, and there was a huge patio including one off of the bathroom. This is one way to make sure a bike trip has a honeymoon component. The next evening's accommodations were spectacular in another way with tall ceilings, a fresco, lots of marble, and a complimentary bottle of champagne from ExperiencePlus!.

    Bob & K-Lynn, Fort Collins, CO
  • Lunch at the farm (ExperiencePlus's European Headquarters) was great! We surprised ourselves with being able to finish the distances. The rides were beautiful.

    Doreen & Michael G., Loveladies, NJ
  • It was a great trip and good way to see and experience Italy for the first time!

    Chris B.
    Littleton, CO
  • Wow! The Venice to Florence was the best trip ever - the routes, the events, the people, the guides! I still am basking in the warm, fuzzy memories - and will for a long time! I've taken 3 bike trips previously and this was by far the best ever! I'll definitely travel with ExperiencePlus again!

    Jane R.
    High Point, NC
  • Words can't describe this extraordinary trip. Our leaders became our friends & advisors. We felt as though we were looked after in every way, but at the same time left alone to face our personal challenges. An absolutely perfect balance. At least for us. The marking & sweeping system sets you apart from the rest... Your choice of hotels & hotel locations were right on. Centrally located & spotlessly clean.

    Rob and Deirdre L.
    Northport, NY
  • I loved the pre-selected meals, with specialty dishes from each of the regions we visited

    Jane R.
    High Point, NC
  • We thought the three leaders were simply brilliant. We liked their upbeat, positive attitudes, their enthusiasm and their approachability. Nothing was too much trouble.

    Jane C. and Jeff H.
    Lucca, Italy
  • We had such a wonderful time. In particular, we found everything to be so professional and so well organized, from the chalk marks, to the luggage logistics, to the choice of restaurants and wines. All very, very nice.

    Jane C. and Jeff H.
    Lucca, Italy
  • The trip was perfect. What more can we say?? The people we traveled with were all lovely, the food and wines sensational, the accommodation charming and good, and the three guides were just wonderful. They really made the trip so special.

    Jane C. and Jeff H.
    Lucca, Italy
  • I LOVED the lunches at the two farms. The first was the farm where they grow everything there -- we had eel, amazing pasta, fresh greens, etc. The second was at the Price family farm. It was fun to meet all of the people that make the company run, taste the great food of the region, see the bike shop, and have the pasta making demo.

    Reed C.
    Longmont, CO
  • Our tour guides were one of the top highlights of our trip. We loved traveling with them and will always remember the hard work, laughs, and advice they provided.

    Reed C.
    Longmont, CO
  • I loved the Po Delta. I would not have taken much notice of it if I had driven through it. I loved the experience of really being there in it. Although it was exhausting I was thrilled to go over the Apennines and felt exhilarated when we went down the other side. A real sense of accomplishment.

    Trish G.
    Canberra, AC Australia
  • We had a very nice time on this tour and particularly enjoyed the tour guides. They were responsive, polite, interesting, and all around very nice folks.

    Tom C.
    Las Cruces,NM
  • Tour leaders were fabulous!! I like the fact that you are encouraged to stop and explore things along the route. The fact that you are not required to stay with the group while riding is a BIG plus ... You'll be seeing me again on a tour soon!!

    Kathleen S.
    Yorba Linda CA
  • This trip was fantastic. I expected a lot. I got more than I expected. I was asked by someone in our group why someone who rides as far as I do and who rides as fast as I do why I would choose a 101 rated ride. My answer is, "I am on vacation." Before this, I had never been out of the country before. Since I chose to do a tour in Italy, I didn't want to work really hard riding for hours on end. I also didn't want to set any speed records. I wanted a ride that was going to be fun. This tour was that. The mix of people on the tour was great and the tour leaders were fantastic. I stayed behind in Florence for another three days when the rest of the group left for Pisa. Before the guides left, they told me that I had their cell numbers and if I ran into any trouble to just give them a call. I am very impressed with their service and I hope that someday I will get to travel with them again.

  • What I liked most: The entire combination --- biking on scenic routes, nice companionship, excellent food, ability to tour the cities we visited. I found this to be a great new way to travel.

    Jill B.
    Dearborn, MI
  • The arrow-approach of marking the road was excellent as it made the ride that much more enjoyable versus trying to have to read a map. Also, I enjoyed the quiet roads and there seemed to be a focus to avoid busy roads as much as possible.

    Jill B.
    Dearborn, MI
  • I didn't know what to expect on my tour. I thought I'd see some sights in Italy and meet some new people. What I got was something else. Not only was I blown away by the beauty of Italy, the extraordinary friendliness of it's people, the wonderful hospitality of the guides, and the closeness of the other people on the ride. I kept a journal of my experiences and after the first day I wrote that we all became quick friends, but when it was time to depart, I felt that I was saying goodbye to long lost family members. Thank you to the tour leaders for surpassing everything that I expected.

    Brian B.

  • Just came back to Toronto having finished the Venice to Florence bike ride. It was just superb and I wanted to compliment and thank you for a wonderful experience while the euphoria is still fresh. I am already thinking of the next trip. Thanks for everything.

  • The dinners were great experiences, with good food and fabulous discussions about culture, history food, wine and just about everything else under the sun.

    John S.

  • I chose your company because I wanted a more personal tour experience and the "mom and pop" side of your company seemed to fit the bill. I was very pleased with the experience. It was exactly what you promised and then some. All in all a four star trip.

    John S.
    Oak Hill, VA
  • Just a note to laud you for the extraordinary tour I took with ExperiencePlus! through Italy. Our tour leaders went far beyond their duties to make sure we were cared for and had a great time. Again, an amazing experience.
