      Today is the last stage of the Via Claudia Augusta, which brings you to the end point to Altino on the Adriatic.Right at the beginning you can pedal again and cycle up a small climb that leads you through idyllic woodland and lush green meadows. As soon as you have mastered the ascent, a fast descent will take you past the impressive Castello di Susegana and picturesque vineyards. Finally, it becomes shallower and you always cycle gently downhill through beautiful fields and orchards.About halfway you pass the pretty town of Treviso, which enchants with its numerous canals. Here is worth a stroll through the old town. From Treviso the bike path takes you to the river Sile, where you cycle along the water for a while, until the Via Claudia Augusta finally leads you straight through the fields, draws a small loop on the Santa Maria canal and brings you to the ancient Altino. Here ends the old Roman road Via Claudia Augusta, which you followed from Germany over the Alps. At the end of the exciting bike tour you can visit the excavations and exhibits around Altino.To continue your journey from here, you can cycle to the station in Quarto d'Altino or directly to the nearby Venice airport.

Some sections are unpaved. Here special care and slow driving is required. A unique highlight on the way is the boardwalk around the steep cliffs. In addition to the adrenaline rush, the section also offers a spectacular view of the valley.After this fascinating descent on the old Roman road, it goes on the Via Claudia Augusta a little more comfortable.

      Today is the last stage on the Via Claudia Augusta, which brings you to the end of the ancient Roman road to the Po.On the way from Verona, a few small climbs are waiting for you. At the place Custoza you have reached the highest point of the stage and from now on it is only downhill. After enjoying a thrilling downhill ride and rolling a few miles, it's worth braking to Villafranca di Verona for a break. Here you can treat yourself to an espresso in one of the cafes and see the castle of the city, which in summer serves as a backdrop for big rock concerts. Afterwards it continues, always slightly downhill, through a rural area with wide fields, meadows and lush plantations, until you finally reach the Po.Here on a river loop is the place Ostiglia, in which the Via Claudia Augusta ends and thus your bike tour. While your gaze wanders over the river, you can review your journey by bike across the Alps and think about how the ancient Romans would have mastered this journey back then. Once you have seen everything in Ostiglia and taken off the Po, you can take the train from the station of the village, which brings you back to Verona, for example.

Incidentally, one of the six mountain museums of Reinhold Messner is located in the castle. On the well-maintained bike path you cycle further south through picturesque orchards and often directly along the banks of the Adige along. On these sections, you can enjoy the view of the river meandering through the mountain-lined valley. For the small and large breaks in between, there are now and then on the bike path wells where you can fill the water bottle, and small places that invite you to stop by.In the center of Trento, surrounded by mountains, there are many places to stay and a train station if you want to continue by train. Here also the Via Claudia Augusta splits in two routes.

      From Landeck it starts on the sixth stage of the Via Claudia Augusta once moderately going on. Although some altitude meters are waiting for you today, at the beginning these are still distributed on a steady and steady increase, similar to the first stages in Germany. Always along the bank of the Inn you cycle through the narrow, deeply cut valley. To the left and right rise mighty mountains, which provide a unique alpine feeling.After about three quarters of the way, you will visit Switzerland. The Inn forms the natural border between Austria and Switzerland. So you cycle a few kilometers on the Swiss side to the small town of Martina. Here you cross the Inn and the border with Austria and start with the ascent to the Norbertshöhe, which is just before the Nauders stage destination at 1,405 meters altitude. The climb leads you over a serpentine road with fantastic views.Once at the top, you can first catch a breath on the bench or you can go straight to the inn and treat yourself to a large piece of cake or something hearty. The last two kilometers to the stage destination Nauders drive then practically by itself - it goes namely downhill.
