BIKE TOURING THE VENICE PROVINCE | VENETO REGION

Bike Touring Venice Italy

The Province of Venice is flat and offers several sign posted bike routes, and the Province has projects to offer more routes in the future.  There is no bike riding in the city of Venice (Venezia) itself, and if you are traveling through the city do not be tempted to ride in the streets, or you will get ticketed.  Only in Piazzale Roma and on the Giudecca is bicycle riding allowed.  You will also find it hard to take an assembled bicycle onto the waterbuses during busy times or if you are moving from within the city to the outer islands. It is getting better at certain stops, but it really depends on who is taking the tickets aboard the boat.  Only from Tronchetto can you get a ferry over to the Lido di Venezia and other Islands. . 

The Map below shows some of the best rides in the Venice (Venezia) Province.
