At a glance

Venice: It’s one of those places that conjures romantic images of gorgeous stone castles and narrow lanes of blue-green water that snake through the city like streets.

It’s one of those destinations that very well lives up to those romantic images in our minds. It is that dreamy. That romantic. And that beautiful.

The city, capital of the northern Veneto region, sits on a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges.

The city itself is not to be missed, and is the starting and ending point of many bike tours in the region. However, the region itself is also worth exploring on two wheels.

Why cyclists love it
