From Lake Garda to Venice

Mountains & Lakes, Grappa & Palazzi.

From the north shores of Lake Garda you walk along ancient pilgrim routes through the rock deserts of the Sarca-valley down into the Etsch-valley to Trento. From there you proceed into the wonderfully quiet valley of Valsugana, which was already utilised by the Romans along the Via Claudia in order to reach the Adriatic Sea. Here you come across imperial spa towns and historic forts, busy village centres invite you to an adventurous exploration. You experience the Lake Garda mountains, the Vizentiner Alps, the high summits of the Cima Dodoci, you walk through an open-air art exhibition and get to know the rivers Brenta, Sile, Sarca and Etsch. Glistening lakes and high mountains are your constant companion. The high-altitude paths above the Brenta-valley guide you downhill into the wine-growing region of Bassano del Grappa. Through the impressive river landscape of the Sile Nature Park you reach the lagoon region of the UNESCO – World Heritage Site Venice.
