Leaving from and arriving at: Bolzano

We leave by train from Bolzano for Malles. After Merano, we go into the Venosta Valley. The wide view we have is very unusual. We can admire the view passing through cultivated fields, woods and meadows and look up at the bare rock or snow capped mountains. We pick up our bikes at Malles station. We then go down to Glorenza and after a coffee break, we visit the town, an excellent example of a medieval city still surrounded by a wall. Back to the cycle path which runs along the Adige river and crosses fields and apple orchards. Stop for lunch in a restaurant in Lasa. Start up again to discover some features of Laces and Naturno. We can take the train back to Bolzano from one of these two towns or we can go to Merano to take the train.

Note: The programme may be change due to circumstances beyond our control, such as the weather conditions, festive or seasonal closures of roads, museums, cable car etc. In these cases, alternative solutions will be provided.
