The river continues from Trento into the Veneto. Disconcertingly, the Ciclabile Valle dell’Adige stops abruptly at the regional border with no signs to indicate where to go (there is in fact an orange and white Via Claudia Augusta sign which points in the right direction). You then need to follow the strada provin­ciale for a couple of kilometres before equally suddenly you come to the start of another ciclabile: the Ciclabile Valle dell’Adige (Sole). There’s then a bit of climbing before settling down to the cruise into Verona along the course of a man-made waterway. 


You could turn off the route before Rovereto and take another ciclabile that leads via Torbole to Riva del Garda.

There’s a hostel at Rovereto and an agrit­urismo, where you can camp, in the gap between the two stretches of cycleway but after that you will need to press on to Verona. Verona is home to the campsite that has, probably, the most inter­esting location in the whole of Italy. The Camping Castel San Pietro is located on a terraced site inside the walls of the Castel San Pietro overlooking the city. 


There’s a major rail station at Verona.
