Bicycle through the tiny forgotten villages where tourists seldom are seen and tour a Villa which Napolean once resided. Then cycle to our first castle before arriving in San Daniele, home of Italy's finest prosciutto.

Days 2-3: Cividale, Wineries & Countryside Abbeys
Enjoy the view of the mighty Alps as you cruise along gentle hills covered with castles, vineyards, orchards and tiny hamlets. Explore the medieval streets of the region's wine capital and relax at your 4-star hotel spa. Wine tasting and a fascinating Abbey visits are awaiting on your third day's ride.

Days 4 & 5: Crossing into Slovenia
We bike from our hotel to the Slovenian border and quickly realize we have left Italy behind. Green becomes the dominant color, as forests cover more than half of the country.
