From the top of Valsugana down to the valley of Adige

Cycling day 11/85 km ~ From Roncegno to Loppio

After having enjoyed the great breakfast which was included in the room of the Agriturismo Montibeller I left the small town and continued to cycle in the valley of Valsugana which I already knew from my trip two years ago.

Having fantastic weather it was great to follow the Via Julia Augusta. I thought I just would have to cycle downhill to Trento – but that was completely wrong as you’ve had to go uphill as the valley was very near.

I’ve also cycled along the Lago di Caldonazzo which was outstanding.

Finally I came down to Trento where I had lunch in the central park. There I had the idea to come back one day and attend an language school – would be great to study in the country of the language you want to learn.

Cycling along the wide valley of Adige was a little bit boring – and very hot. But of course better than rain 😀

I’ve tried to have a look to the ancient town of Rovereto but the traffic was so dangerous that I decided to continue my ride to the campingsite in Loppio – which has a pool and a coffee machine 😁

Part two – From Bassano del Grappa to Lago di Garda

So after having 1 or 2 nights at the beach enjoying the white sand and the salty water I’ll continue my trip by train to Bassano del Grappa.

Here I will set up my tent at the campingsite I´ve used to visit in 2016 on my way to Rome. This time I´d like to have a walk through the medieval old town.
So on the next day I will cycle up the valley of the river Brenta to the Lago di Caldanazzo which was fantastic in 2016.

Cycling down to the heart of Trento I´m going to follow the Adige Valley (Etsch) staying overnight at an “Agriturismo”. That´s a farm where you can pitch up your tent and get some (organic) breakfast or dinner made in the region.

So we´ll follow the cyclepath BicItalia 1 to Lazise and further on to the famous town of
Sirmione where I´d like to spend some time.

Finally I´m going to reach the campingsite next to Manerba where I´ll stay for 2 nights or so. Here you can enjoy the beauty of this outstanding lake.
