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, ending after 3 days in Verona. During the 3 stages all partecipants of the AUGUSTOUR will cross, sitting on a their bike, 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 Bolzano, stage towns are Trento, Rovereto and Verona. The next edition of the AUGUSTOUR will take place in May, from 24th to 26th, 2019.

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 2019 is the new collaboration with FAI, the Fondo Ambiente Italiano. During the 3 stages we make some cultural stops in a castle or in a tipical “palazzo” along the bike route. On day 1, for example, we visit of the center of Trento with his beautiful duomo and piazza. FAI is 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.

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 our bike rental service. Finally, a special bus brings you after the 3 stages to the start.
