AUGUSTOUR (Italian Green Road Award 2015) is a cycling holiday event in northern Italy and takes place at the end of May: you will ride with a guided group through the beautiful region of South Tyrol and Trentino, starting in Bolzano and ending after 3 days in Verona (Veneto region).

During the 3 stages all partecipants of the AUGUSTOUR will cross, sitting on a their e-bikes, along a part of the marvellous – and excellent cycling route, called Via Claudia Augusta, the ancient cultural and trade passage of the Roman Empire. Amusement and pleasure to ride along the event’s track are the main purposes of it all, standing right in the foreground. All cyclists follow their own rhythm, ride in a guided group, with no stress! Start is in the city of Bolzano, the other stage towns are Trento, Rovereto and Verona. The next edition of the AUGUSTOUR will take place between May, 30th and June, 1st, 2020.

During the 3-day ride of AUGUSTOUR we offer some special refreshment points with local goodies. The visit of a local winery and an exklusive dinner (“Notte Verde”) in Rovereto will be other highlights.

The very special thing in the AUGUSTOUR is the new collaboration with FAI, the Fondo Ambiente Italiano, a private non-profit organisation with 60,000 members. Its purpose is to protect elements of Italy’s physical heritage which might otherwise be lost. During the 3 stages of the AUGUSTOUR  we make some cultural stops, so we visit a beautiful castle (Castello di Avio) and a tipical “palazzo” (Betta Grillo in Rovereto), both collocated along our bike route. On day 1 we will see also of the center of  Trento with his Duomo and the unforgettable Piazza.

In the AUGUSTOUR  you can take also advantage of our daily luggage transport and, if you decide not to come with your own bike, use the bike rental service of our partner. Finally, a special bus brings you after the 3 stages to the start.

Now, register for the AUGUSTOUR booking our “All Inclusive – Package” wich includes 3-days tour partecipation, accommodations in Hotel, daily luggage transfer, cultural and gastronimic stops and several other useful services.
