Brenta Riviera by bike

Ring route from the agriturismo Ca’ Marcello to Dolo and back

The cycling route of the Riviera del Brenta from Stra to Malcontenta / Fusina, is a classic that we often advice to do. This round trip  includes a part of the tour along the Riviera del Brenta.

Seriola

The round bike tour starts from the Agriturismo Ca ‘Marcello.
Turning right you go along the Brenta and then take Via Seriola.
La Seriola is not an ordinary drainage channel: it was the ancient supply of drinking water for the Serenissima Venezia.
It was 13.5 km long and started in Dolo. On arrival in Fusina the water was loaded in special boats for Venice.

Gambarare and Piazza Vecchia

You arrive at the end of the road (traffic light). Turn left towards Gambarare and Piazza Vecchia.
The church of Gambarare is among the most interesting in the area. Built in 1306 by the Hilarian monks, it was then remodeled, but retained part of the original structure.
At Piazza Vecchia are the remains of one of the columns placed to mark the border between Padua and Venice.
Airone Cenerino, Riviera del Brenta

 

Continue towards the Nuovissimo channel. Optionally you can stand on one side or the other of the canal. We advise you to stay on the left side as you have to continue on via Seriola which takes you from that side.

Dolo

Follow Via Seriola until the end.
You arrive in Dolo, near the gates of the Brenta.

Dolo, Riviera del Brenta

It is worthwhile to reach “Isola Bassa” of Dolo to see the “squero”, and the Molini, where you can stop for lunch or just to refresh yourself a little.

From Dolo to Agriturismo Ca’ Marcello along the Riviera del Brenta

On the way back, take Via Vego Scocco (turn right at the Via Seriola exit), and continue along Via Brenta Bassa.
You come across several villas such as Villa Angeli (visitable garden), Villa Badoer Fattoretto, Villa Tito and Villa Velluti, Villa dei Leoni, Villa Valier, Villa Widmann and the Barchesse Villa Valmarana, and many others.
Continue along the Riviera del Brenta to Mira and then Oriago and finally arrive at the Agriturismo Ca ‘Marcello.
