Our next trip to Italy will last 30 days and cover a lot of area
il prossimo viaggio in Italia our next trip to Italy.
In addition to the places on the map, we will travel from Treviso to Roma where we will spend 10 days. Our plans include arriving on 20 September when temperatures have moderated. September and October are comfortable times to be in Italy. Of course, airfare is much lower in these months and places are less crowded.
Milan is a wonderful city to visit and easy to get around with buses, subways, and trams all over. Google maps works were well with mass transit. Gives numbers, and times. Can not travel without it.
More to follow in next post.
Vincenza, Veneto, Italy
I came upon VIncenza during bike tour in October. A beautiful city in north east Italy. This photo is of Ponte San Paolo
Porticos as we walked to the centro for dinner.
The civic Bissara Tower was built in the late 12th century and overlooks Piazza dei Signori, alongside the famous Basilica Palladiana.
The tower was raised in the mid-15th century to it present height og 82 meters ans is still one of the tallest buildings in Vicenza.
The centro or downtown area is great for dining or shopping.

A small area in Vincenza, Ponte Contra San Paolo. Serendipity as I walked towards the city center with a group of bicyclists from Australia and the UK.
SIX DAYS OF CYCLING FROM THE DOLOMITES TO VENICE IN 6 MINUTES
Iin six days we biked about 240 miles from Bolzano to just outside of Venice (Mestre). Almost perfect weather and the most beautiful paths for viewing and cycling. This tour was with Exodus, a UK based company. I highly recommend this tour.
The Dolomites along side the Adige river make this such a wonderful location. On this day we were riding from Bolzano back to Trento. The scenery was breathtaking.
This bridge is in Nomi , Trentino-Alto Adige/Sudtirol , Italy. What is difficult to see is the spokes that come down from the arc. This is meant to resemble a bicycle tire, and is adjacent to the bike path.
The Arena in Verona, Operas and Concerts take place here.
Giulietta making an appearance on the balcony.
We arrived in the Soave region of Italy. Famous for its grapes.
Here is the link to a aerial video of our 6 days of riding. It was an amazing trip. The video was recorded from Relive The RIde, a great website for cycling.
