SportVerona 400 Km: Valsugana
The divine-black route. The most diverse route

From Villa Guerrina, we head east crossing Cazzano di Tramigna and some charming villages, until we get to the Berici hills. The ambience is perfect for cycling, and in a little while we arrive in Vicenza: from here, Bassano del Grappa is not far, and we reach it soon. There, we cross the beautiful Ponte degli Alpini (Alpini’s bridge) and then we start cycling on the quiet Valsugana bike path.

We follow the valley and then we go down to Trento. We cross its nice city centre, but we don’t stay in the bottom of the valley longtime: the itinerary goes up on the nice road to Bondone mountain. Half-way of the road we go down to Terlago and there we find another nice bike path, the one of the Valle dei Laghi (Valley of the Lakes). We cycle on the bike path until the village of Arco, then up again to Nago, and down to the river Adige bike path. We follow it until Sega di Cavaion: there, we head to Bardolino, at the shores of Lake Garda.

We follow the lake until Gardaland amusement park, then up and down on the hills of Cavalcaselle, Sona and Sommacampagna. We get to Verona crossing the countryside, and finally we arrive in Montorio after climbing the classic road of the Torricelle hills.

Distance 405 km, altitude + 3.000 km. Manifold.
