The first part of this route takes you through the Vinschgau (Val Venosta) from the lake at Reschen to the spa town of Meran (Merano) and the region’s capital Bozen (Bolzano). This is defin­itely most scenic part of the route, with plenty of attractive villages along the way.


If you’re heading north-south the route is pretty much downhill all the way. When I did this route in 2011 there was a couple of shortish stretches of unsur­faced cycleway in this section. 

The route connects with the Ciclopista del Sole at Bozen/Bolzano (link opens in new window).
