Castelbello-Ciardes is a cyclists’ paradise that runs along the ancient Roman Via Claudia Augusta in the south of the cultural region of Venosta Valley. The ancient Roman road Via Claudia Augusta winds along the Adige River through the Castelbello-Ciardes holiday area. Shaded by leafy trees, the Via Claudia Augusta
is today a popular and largely paved bicycle route for recreational cyclists. This 80-km-long Adige Cycle Route
follows gentle slopes from Resia Lake on the border down to Merano/Meran.
The section near Castelbello-Ciardes/Kastelbell-Tschars is particularly popular, as here along the route one finds popular rest and catering areas especially geared to cyclists.
