Day by day itinerary

Day 1 will start with a welcome meeting, where you will get all final information and materials for your trip. If you choose to rent bikes with us this will also be the day when we will fit the bike to your needs. We recommend to follow the day rides like we suggest, but since you will be center-based you can choose on your own what ride to do.
First day of cycling your will explore the area on both sides of the border. You will have the chance to visit the youngest city in Slovenia - Nova Gorica, ride along the beautiful rolling hills among the vineyards, visit Castello di Spessa where Giacomo Casanova stayed during his best days and taste some of the delicious local food and wine.

Your second ride will be all about charming town Cividale del Friuli. A typical Italian town located next to the Nadiza/Natisone river that is on the list of UNESCO world heritage and offers a great way to get to know the history of north Italy and life nowadays. Our tip is to have a proper Italian espresso on the main square; Piazza del Duomo and enjoy the dolce vita. 🙂

The day will be all about the famous Soca valley as you will be riding above it on a beautiful plateau where on clear day you can see the Adriatic sea. The area was very important in the WW1 and you will have the chance to explore remaining military buildings from the past.
