BIKE TOURING PADOVA TO VENICE ROUTE NOTES

  • START POINT: Padova Train Station
  • END POINT: Mestre Train Station
  • ELEVATION GAIN: 0 meters
  • AVERAGE % GRADE: 0

Today the route follows the waterways out of the city to reach the town of Stra and the Riveria del Benta.  The Brenta Canal was the primary trade route out of the Venice Republic.  Later as trade flow reduced many of the aristocratic families built lavish homes along the waterway.  The villa Pisani in Stra is the starting point and as you ride through Dolo, Mira and finally to Malcontenta there is a rich culture of architecture.  This section of the adventure ends in the last mainland city prior to reaching Venice, Mestre.  At Mestre enjoy the old square and then either take the train into Venice or ride across to 'Liberty Bridge'.
