Venosta Valley is long and varied and therefore ideal for exploring by bicycle
. The tours along the bottom of the valley are optimal for moderate cyclists and families. More ambitious cyclists can find challenging destinations for race cycling
and mountain biking
on the pass-roads and at the mountainsides.
The 80km long Adige cycling trail along the old Roman road the Via Claudia Augusta
is particularly popular among moderate cyclists. The way runs from Resia Lake in the North to the spa town of Merano/Meran. It runs through Burgusio/Burgeis with a view of the Marienberg Abbey, through Malles/Mals with its five Romanesque churches, through the medieval town of Glorenza/Glurns
and also past the ancient St. Proculus church in Naturno/Naturns with its pre-Carolingian frescos.
One of the most exciting cycling routes in Venosta Valley leads up to the 2,760 m high Stelvio Pass
, one of the highest mountain passes in the Alps. The Stelvio Pass road
with its 48 bends is also one of the most important stages of the Giro d'Italia race.
