October 6, 2019 – Verona to Vicenza


Packed and ready to leave our B&B in Verona.

We still had some steep hills to negotiate today even though we are out of the mountains and into the “plains.” When the gradient hits 10% or more for a good distance we sometimes resort to walking with our bikes. That happened today on one of the hills.

A narrower than usual path on our way to Vicenza.

The view from the top of the hill.

Today’s route took us mostly on small roads as opposed to separated paths, some with a fair amount of traffic. For a good part of the way we were following biciitalia route I1, but the signage was not as consistent as on previous routes, like the one from Trento to Verona.

We passed the well-preserved medieval Castle of Soave along the way whose walls were built in 1379.

Tomorrow, on to the Brenta River Valley.
