I have to admit that the route out of Verona isn’t partic­u­larly inspiring - it looks like there is an off-road route that you can take through the Parco dell’ Adige Sud but, I couldn’t confirm it so I opted for a road route.

After the initial stretch through the suburbs of Verona the route turns off the road and follows the cycleway along the south (destra) bank of the river. From here to the border with Rovigo its a lovely cruisey ride on a new tarmac cycleway. At Rovigo the cycleway is replaced by unsur­faced roads - but still a tranquil easy ride. If you prefer you can cross over to the north bank and follow the local roads. These seemed pretty quiet. 


The route connects with the Islands and Lagoons of the Adriatic coast route. You could use it to head for Venezia or turn south for Ravenna. Alternatively you could turn off the route and head for Ferrara.

Places to stay

Campsites are few and far between until you get to the coast. The nearest to the route is the Agriturismo Alba at Baone near Este - or there’s the Campeggio Estense at Ferrara. There are plenty of campsites at Rosalina Mare on the coast. There are also lots of hotels and campsites at Chioggia - see the continu­ation to Chioggia.

For travellers on a budget, hostels may be the best option. At Legnago, there’s the Ostello Adige ( Ostello Adige). Other hostels within reach of the route include (in order of proximity) :
