Castle on the Via Claudia Augusta near Mals

The Via Claudia Augusta

The Via Claudia Augusta is an inter­na­tional route that starts near Augsburg in Germany. It follows traffic-free cycleways as far as Trento. At Trento you have the option of either continuing to Verona on a traffic-free cycleway beside the Adige, or going to the Lago di Caldonazzo in the hills above Trento, where it picks up the Ciclabile della Valsugana which you can follow into Bassano del Grappa. There's a quiet road route between Trento and the lake —or you can take the train or a bike-shuttle.
