From Levico you travel along the cycling path and then the road leading to Località Lochere di Caldonazzo, where you begin to go up to Passo Vezzena, along a military road, which is better known as “Kaiserjagerstrasse”. The long straight parts dug in the rock mark this difficult path, which leads you to the panoramic viewpoint on the lakes Caldonazzo and Levico, then to the meadows of the Vezzena Plateau, pointed by many mountain farms, which during the summer produce the famouse Vezzena cheese.

Safety information

Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.

Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.

Always wear your helmet.

Make sure your front and rear lights are working.

Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.

Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!

Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.

If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
