FROM VENICE (ITALY) TO POREČ (CROATIA), 8 DAYS
Experience 3 countries in a week, cycling from the islands of Venice and past the golden beaches,
vinyeards and historic towns of Slovenia, to reach Croatia’s Istrian Peninsula. With easy cycling and so
much variety, Venice to Porec is the ultimate cycling experience. Start off with a vaporetto ride
(ferry) in Venice before following the coastline to colourful towns and pretty piazzas, stopping off on
route to swim in the Adriatic.
As you ride across green plains and pedal towards the Julian Alps, you’ll pass blue lagoons and
sparkling rivers, Roman towns and historic fishing huts, plus one of Northern Italy’s most important
archaeological ruins. Slovenia’s top beach resorts, historic salt mines and wildlife rich wetlands are
something to look forward to towards the end of the tour and the Croatian town of Porec is a lively
place to finish – don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to stay longer.
