Prosecco bicycle tour: hills covered in vineyards, glasses and sparkling wine... Cycling in Valdobbiadene is a pleasant up and downhill passing by many wine producers where you cannot say no to a good glass of wine. The Piave river, not far, tells many sad stories when hate didn't spare anyone, even the green island known as the Island of the Deads. A mill, a castle high above, a villa and a long textile tradition: this is not only a cycling itinerary but a real bicycle tour into the living heart of Valdobbiadene and its surroundings.
Cycling Corsica, my first solo bicycle tour, was my graduation gift. I cannot deny that the planning was approximate since on Friday afternoon I started figuring out the destination of my one-week trip (it had to be one week long, close to home, cheap and in a place with mild temperature in February too), and on Sunday I left. At the beginning my idea was to cycle on the Danube cycleway: closer to "my" Trentino bit certainly far from my idea of warm climate I wanted... rejected! Next idea: Camargue and the southern coast of France until Barcelona (where I wanted to visit an aunt of mine): too far... impossible to make it!
