Mestre to Porec
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Cycling towards Venice and through lush farmland. The Basilica in Aquilea is well worth a look. Italian ice cream and fantastic fresh fish in the restaurants en route.
What did you think of your group leader?
We only encountered him once when the bikes were delivered to the hotel, so can't really comment. The luggage transfer was very efficient.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The hire bikes were very good but the female bikes are more " sit up and beg" style. I asked to change to the bike given to men (as I prefer that cycling position) so ended up with a frame that was slightly too large as that was all they had. So women travellers.....check the style of the bike you prefer ( look more closely at the photos than I did!) and relay that to Exodus before you travel so hopefully you will get the best bike fit for you. Also mosquito repellant, antihistamine cream for bites is useful.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Better accommodation in some places would definitely have improved the rating of this holiday for us.
