Valle dell'Adige cycle path
The longest cycle route in Trentino
A bike ride that runs through the heart of Trentino, connecting the province of Bolzano with the province of Verona. 98 kilometres along the Valle dell’Adige, alongside the river and crossing the entire province of Trento from north to south.
This is the longest cycling route in the Trentino cycling network, and it is packed with landscapes with the ancient history of a borderland. Pages of a history that plays out among the precious land cultivated with vineyards and fruit orchards, with hard-working villages where time seems to have stood still.
The cycling path is protected from traffic for almost the entire length of the route, and uses old river bank roads, crossing fruit orchards and vineyards. The road is flat, the cumulative elevation gain hardly reaches a hundred metres. For this reason, it is even suitable for children.
Path in Piana Rotaliana Königsberg
Arriving from the north, from the borders with South Tyrol, you find the first “Bicigrill” in Cadino. Then, after a few kilometres, you come to San Michele all’Adige, a treasure chest of country life with the precious Museum of traditions and customs of the people of Trentino.
From San Michele all’Adige, there is also a branch leading to Piana Rotaliana, which immerses itself in the centres of Mezzolombardo and Mezzocorona along a ring route, crossing the areas dedicated to cultivating the traditional vine variety of the Piana Rotaliana, and to production of a precious wine: Teroldego Rotaliano DOC.
Continuing along the main route, after having passed Lavis, you see the city of Trento.
