The second stage of the Aple-Adria cycle path starts in Villach, in sunny Carinthia.  After you have started cycling in Carinthia, you will soon be saying ‘Servus Austria – Ciao Italia!’. Shortly after the border you can already feel the unmistakable flair and beauty.  The cycle route leads through a diverse landscape, from the mountains to the vines and the Italian coast.  Cultural highlights are a matter of course!  Are you ready for a journey through the most beautiful parts of Austria and Italy?  Here we go!


Day 1

Arrival in Villach

Day 2

Villach – Tarvis 35 km

You leave Villach along the Gail River and in a little while you leave Austria and welcome Italy. In the triangle of Italy, Austria and Slovenia sprawls the canal valley, the Italian city of Tarvis builds the centre of it. Austrians, Slovenians and Italians are living here next to each other since centuries, so all three big European families of languages – Germans, Romans and Slavs – are meeting up here.

Day 3

Tarvis – Venzone/Surrounding 60 km

In Italy too the cycle path is perfectly developed and hence allows you to leisurely cycle downhill through the Kanaltal Valley and from your bike marvel at the beauty of the Friulian alpine region with its intact, unspoilt nature and extensive forests. Your day ends in one of the picturesque villages located at the foothills of the Julian Alps.

Day 4

Venzone/Surrounding – Udine 60 km

At the southern exit of the Kanaltal Valley is the location of one of the most beautiful historic villages of the Friulian-Julian-Veneto. The focus of the village of Gemona del Friuli is the majestic cathedral Santa Maria Assunta and will blow you away. En route to Udine you come across the first vineyards and vines along the cycle route. Once you arrive in town feel and experience the ‘dolce vita’ over a coffee enjoyed on the ‘piazza’ or during a stroll through the alleyways whilst marvelling at the late Gothic and Renaissance architecture.

Day 5

Udine –Grado 55 km

Feel the warm breeze of the sirocco! You cycle through vast reed scenery and along little water canals towards the Gulf of Venice. In the Roman city of Aquileia, the so-called ‘second Rome’, we recommend you definitely plan a break before reaching the end destination of your holiday. One of the most popular Adriatic beach resorts, the historic little fishing town Grado, will not only excite you with the extensive sandy beach, but also the historic harbour and the narrow alleyways with lovely restaurants all ooze Italian flair.
