Venice is a true carnival of bustle and colour at any time of year. Gondalas and vaporetti, towering buildings and tiny alleyways, one amazing architectural eyeful. Take your fill on this tour and pedal on to explore the piazzas of Rovigo and Palladio’s Vicenza, plus surrounding soft Euganese hills and green riverside routes before savouring the local flavours of Bassano del Grappa and the pleasures of Prosecco country. More must-sees on the menu include Adriatic beaches, Asolo’s fine frescoes, charming clustered villages, castles and Kings - don’t miss the giant live chess games at Marostica’s Piazza Castello! The cycling in this part of Italy is easy, mainly flat or gently undulating with a few steep, but short, climbs.

With its unique labyrinth of canals, ‘calles’ and ‘campiellos’, vibrant Venice is one truly a-mazing city. But hop across its stylish beach islands, head inland along the Veneto waterways from the flamingo lagoons and fertile plains of the great Po Delta and you’ll be rewarded with rich and relatively undiscovered Renaissance cities with palazzi and piazzas by the score. Make the comfortable, all-Italian barge, ‘Ave Maria’, your floating home on a really relaxing trip from Venice to magnificent Mantua, cycling out on  self-guided (guided also an option), gentle, scenic, circular or linear routes to discover everything from the cheesy secrets of Grana Padano and colourful fairground carousels to ancient Adria and the wonders of UNESCO World Heritage city site, Ferrara.

On board the barge, Ave Maria, in an outside-facing 2 bed cabin with private facilities and air-conditioning.

Here’s a bike and boat tour with real Po-tential. Delight in the magnificent island city of Mantua on the Mincio, then explore the wide valley of the great River Po on its final journey to the Adriatic Sea, before one last spot of island hopping up the coast to the flamboyant watery world of Venezia. Also designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the fine Italian Renaissance cities of Mantua and Ferrara are real undiscovered gems and together with the lush green landscapes and flamingo lagoons of the fertile Po Delta create the perfect prelude to that colourful carnival city of grand canals and gondolas, Venice. Make the comfortable, all-Italian barge, ‘Ave Maria’, your floating home and pedal out on all sorts of gentle, scenic, circular or linear routes under the Italian sun. The cycling is self-guided, but following a tour leader is also an option if you prefer. Either way, everything is yours to discover at your own pace, from cheesy secrets of Grana Padano, colourful fairground carousels and celebrity-favoured beach resorts to herons in their hundreds and Adria’s ancient roots as a sea port.
