Introducing Velo Veneto – Italian Cycling Vacations

Buongiorno readers, and welcome to Velo Veneto! For over 25 years, Velo Veneto has been making Italian cycling dreams come true. Whether it’s racing your bike in Italy on fully-closed roads, riding a Gran Fondo in the land that invented them, or climbing the famous Dolomite passes of the Giro d’Italia, there is simply nothing like a cycling adventure in Italy!

Just because our primary focus is on the ride, doesn’t mean we forget the other parts of la dolce vita. Every day, you’ll eat local, fresh food from the best restaurants and agriturismi, drink some of the best Italian wines (many of which are hard to find in the US), and visit some of the pillars of the Italian cycling industry, which surrounds us!

Always wanted to ride in Italy, but having to leave the family behind stopped you? Our single location “summer camp” style means you can ride while the family visits the historical sites, heads out for a hike or game of golf, or just relaxes by the pool. Everyone is happy!

If reading’s daily stage previews and watching Giro stages online makes you say, “I wish I was riding in Italy right now!” then tell us a bit about yourself, and we’ll help you make that dream come true!

Please note – 2014 is Sold Out! But it’s never too early to start thinking about 2015!

  • @Pflax1 @_Gavia_ Don't forget law and ethics. Or on second thought....

  • @ulif @tour_transalp @lidiafluhme jealous! Many of our guests have ridden it & loved it. Wish I knew you were there - we're 5km away

  • @1luckysdad: should we start a REIT? Own this 16th century castle near Paris

  • @ulif I always chuckle at luxury tours sold as "a glimpse into Italian life!" That's Hollywood Italy.

  • @ulif needs a lot of development & cooperation to get to "huge." Very interested in working on that!

  • @ulif $ a sign of market size. Most of our growth comes from non-competitive camps. So many reasons other than competition to ride.

  • @ulif To be truly Italian, you wouldn't even say Gran Fondo - just "la Pinarello" or "Nove Colli" - everyone knows what you mean.

  • @ulif Gran is just one distance of Fondo! There's a reason there are ride to eat companies do $100mm in revenue and we don't...

  • @peteroc62 @pat3459 we need more of that! C'mon Vecchio Capo!

  • RT @CNTraveler: 5 Reasons We Love Google’s New Flight Search Tool

  • @ulif Also worth noting this has been our core offering since 1986. Nothing new for us! Let me know if you need a break from the Fondo biz

  • @ulif Thanks! It's good to be different. Though let's be real, food is part of the cultural experience. Nothing like Italian-American food!

  • Can you really call it a racing "career" if you haven't pinned on a number in Italy?
