Lakes, hills, curves, mountain passes, villages, panoramas ... wine and food tours in Veneto riding your motorbike.
The tour starts at Riva del Garda, the highest point of Lake Garda, then continues towards the Veneto region, in the province of Verona. Malcesine is the first stop. Then by cable car to Mount Baldo to reach the height of 2218 m above sea level. Here the panoramic view is unique and you can admire the lake in its entirety. And, there is more ... from the opposite side you can see the other part of the province, the areas that we are going to visit immediately after the descent from the mountain.
At Torri del Benaco we will find signs leading us to the hills, towards the Valpolicella area which is famous for the wine cultivated there ... Amarone. Curves, hairpin bends, historical villages, castles, villas, areas of extraction of Verona red marble, the stone of Lessinia, the production of classic style furniture and wrought iron, valleys and vineyards too. Recioto, Soave, Custoza, Lugana, Bardolino of the Garda inland area, Lessini Durello, Arcole in the lowlands and Valdadige in the land of forts are the wines produced in this province. These sensational wines are often served with the typical local products found on the laden tables of Verona, such as Vialone Nano Veronese PGI rice, used for delicious risottos with PDO red radicchio, cured meats like soppressa (a type of salami), the cheese and dairy products of Lessinia, the fish of Lake Garda and the rivers, the extra virgin olive oil, vegetables, cherries, peaches and their trees that during blossoming offer spectacular landscapes, PDO chestnuts and marroni on the highlands, apples, pears, melons and watermelons in the plains. Honey from the Lessinia area and the hills overlooking Lake Garda, truffles and the Valeggio tortellini. There will be surely plenty of desserts: the famous pandoro, the star-shaped nadalin, the bovolone. On the second day we will visit the Asiago plateau, in the province of Vicenza. After taking the road to the Soave area and driving along the natural park of Lessinia we will enter the territory of Vicenza, mostly of Gothic origin. Antonio Fogazzaro, Jacopo da Ponte, Andrea Palladio are the protagonists of Vicenza and many are the places and works to visit associated with them. But the centrepiece, where we can make the most of our motorbike horsepower and experience thrilling emotions, are the roads that cross the fronts, trenches, tunnels of the GREAT WAR, from the Asiago plateau to Mount Grappa. The industry sectors where Vicenza can boast significant performance and leadership both nationally and globally are tanning, jewellery, textile clothing, ceramics, wood furnishing and agrifood. The foodie visitor can taste several typical dishes, from Vicentine style cod, to capons a la canevera, kid on the spit, mutton with rice and peas, to the many rice dishes including one with Lumignano peas, asparagus from Bassano, sopressa of Valli del Pasubio and Recoaro duly accompanied by a warm slice of Brustolà polenta, trout from Valdastico, the toresani from Breganze accompanied by polenta onta, bigoli with duck from Thiene, turkeys (paete) with Montebello pomegranate (malgaragno) each of which can be matched with a certain period of the year and a specific wine from the area of the Berici Hills, Gambellara and Breganze. The most famous ones are: Gambellara, Garganego, Vespaiolo and Breganze. The peaceful plateau of the seven municipalities (Asiago) will host us the second day of our tour.
The third day of the tour is dedicated to the northern part of the province of Treviso. From wonderful Asiago, leaving behind the descent of Enego, we will go up to the Grappa area, frontline during the First World War. The Forts of Primulano will appear after the first bends. Driving forward, between sharp bends and in the midst of fir and beech trees, you can start admiring breath-taking views of the Venetian plain. Cima Grappa (1770 metres a.s.l.) is the first stop where we will visit the Military Memorial Monument. The silence and atmosphere keeps alive the memory of the victims... The landscape is filled with old memories of the First World War; trenches, paths, tunnels, small blockhouses used for defense. The Piave river, sacred to the homeland, is clearly visible and its sinuous shape leads our gaze to the Venetian lagoon. The descent from this mountain will take us to Possagno, birthplace, temple and museum of the famous sculptor and painter Antonio Canova, the artist who revived the ancient Greek sculptures and lived between the 18th and 19th century. The area of the Road of the Prosecco and Conegliano- Valdobbiadene DOCG wines will be our destination of the day. Prosecco, a DOC white wine, the most famous wine of the area and renowned all over the world with sales exceeding, in recent years, those of the most well-known French wines. Of equal importance are, nonetheless Cartizze, Torchiato di Fregona, Refrontolo passito, Montello and Colli Asolani, Verduzzo, Merlot and Raboso del Piave. On tables laden with delicious local dishes; risotto with bruscandoli, the peverata sauce, Treviso radicchio, Bassano-style asparagus, pasta and beans, sopa coada, spit roast and tiramisu as dessert, prepared with expertise, skill and tradition.
Follina, a small town located at the foot of the Belluno Prealps, and in the heart of the vineyard area, will host us for two nights. The fourth day will be exclusively devoted to PROSECCO, the surrounding hills with small excursions in the Belluno area; traditions and places of the northern Treviso province that cannot be just described ... they are to be discovered !!! (photos of Rolle, Mulinetto, Osteria senza oste, Passo S.Boldo, Prederadego, Posa Puner).
The Dolomites will be the highlight of the last day. Mountain passes, tunnels, bends and counterbends…..landscapes…. hikes up to alpine huts. Dolomites are recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site: they are the most beautiful mountains in the world! An explosion of colour and vitality: the emerald green of the pastures and the intense green of fir woods, the blue of the clear sky and the rainbow of blooms, the intense red that illuminates the peaks at sunset, an extraordinary phenomenon due to the unique composition of the Dolomite rocks. A scenario that only these mountains can offer, and one that awakens our desire to live in the open air. Trekking, mountaineering, horseback riding, mountain biking, walking in nature, windsurfing, rafting, paragliding; the Three Peaks of Lavaredo, Marmolada, Tofane, Pelmo, Civetta, Cinque Torri.
But the Dolomites are also places rich in culture, art and traditions. The stylish and fashionable Cortina d’Ampezzo; the Zoldo Valley, studded with precious little churches and stately homes; Cadore, land of history and art with the beautiful Pieve di Cadore, birthplace of the great painter Titian; the “green Comelico”, a territory divided into two very seductive areas: the Val Comelico, a Ladin area, and Sappada, a German-speaking region within Italy. A tour to see, discover, and stimulate the desire to return to Veneto and get to know it better!
