Days 1-3 Piacenza to Venice
20th to the 22nd April
Specific start and end points for each day will be published nearer to the event. As a rough guide a possible route for this section can be seen in the pictures below and by following the map links beneath.
For most of this stage, EuroVelo 8 follows the course of the River Po – which represents the only time it leaves the coastline of the Mediterranean. We will cycle our way across gently undulating countryside largely on dedicated cycling infrastructure, which makes the route ideal for families or people new to cycling tourism. After connecting to the Adriatic, the route heads north, along the outer islands of the Venice Lagoon. It will be necessary to use ferries to island hop along the barrier!
