Go down in history on your bike!

From the mountains to the lands of the Great River, 300 km from Bolzen to Ferrara in the randonnée that crosses three regions. From green Alto Adige you will sweetly cycle down the Etschtal, passing through Trento, up to Rivoli Veronese and then take the cycle path following the River Mincio as far as Mantua. From there you will cycle along the banks of River Po as far as Ferrara.

Rando Imperator Bozen – Ferrara is the 300-km randonnée mainly following the cycle path on the Via Claudia Augusta, the ancient roman road connecting the Danube with the Po and the Adriatic sea. A unique track to make history and feel like emperors.

You will gain the ACP brevet, because Rando Imperator is officially registered on the Audax Italia calendar.
