In the vicinity are the classics above all the Villach Alpine Roadthe Gerlitzen Panoramastrasse, the Wurzen- and Loiblpass or the Magdalensberg. If you search for extended tours you have to prefer the top spots Predil- and Vršičpass, Sella Nevea, Nockalm Road or Seebergsattel. Whether as a day trip or by starting in the vicinity. The distances are manageable. Other well-known classics are the Grossglockner High Alpine Roadthe Malta Hochalm Road and Monte Zoncolan.

Another highlight for a longer cycling holiday is certainly a day trip to the Adriatic Sea. The cycle path is particularly suitable here. Ciclovia Alpe-Adria. The former railway line through the Val Canale. Meanwhile developed to one of the most popular cycle paths in Europe. Through tunnels and over railway bridges, the cycle path winds its way past the top spots to the Adriatic Sea. The best way to switch back is by rail. Not only from the endpoint of Trieste, but of course also from stage finishes such as Venzone or Udine.
From Tarvisio, the Ciclovia Alpe-Adria runs eastwards to the Slovenian town of Kranjska Gora. On the way there a short, crisp ascent to the Italian Laghi Fusine is recommended.
