Holiday overview

This journey through the north of Italy explores some of the most beautiful and romantic cities of the Veneto region.

Arriving in magical Mantova you will board your floating home, before heading out to explore this historic city and its beautiful surroundings. From here we begin our cruise along the Po River, exploring quaint, historical towns along the way. From the ancient city walls of Ferrara, the charming fishing port of Chiogga (known as Little Venice) and the charming carousel museum of Bergantino, this region of Italy will charm and captivate.

This tour allows you to explore some fantastic scenery by bike. As well as discovering the Po Delta, a unique wetlands park, your journey also travels to smaller islands, such as Pallestrina and Lido.

Last but by no means least is Venice, where you will enjoy a free day of sightseeing in its historical centre.

Discover beautiful places on two wheels with HF Holidays and Saddle Skedaddle.




Staying on board the modern, bright and spacious Ave Maria or the traditional Vita Pugn, your accommodation for the week is on a specially designed boat. During the day, a local leader will be leading the way, however route descriptions are provided if you'd prefer to cycle independently from the group.
