It is a bicycle tour that takes 8 days taking you through Adria, Po Delta Interregional Park, Comacchio and 6 other destinations in Italy. "Venice To Florence Cycle" is a self-guided private tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Cycle between classic Italian cities, discovering charming villages and local culinary delights en route. Between the two romantic cities of Florence and Venice is the unknown Italy, where vineyards and endless sunflower fields merge with orchards and charming villages, where the river landscape has played an integral part in the regions history and local fisherman wave as you cycle past their pole-huts lining the canals. The relaxed cycle route winds away from Venice along the Adriatic coast, reminding you of the previously strong Venetian dominance over the seas. Taking in the artistic culture and historical legacies entwined in the region of Emilia-Romagna, where mosaics, ceramics and cuisine are some of the noted specialties, there are endless opportunities to stop and absorb the attractions.

Riding a bike through Italy gave one a true appreciation of Italian life. The tour gets you off the beaten path away from the over tourist cities. The small cities are welcoming and friendly.
