The easy cycle path in town
p>To inexperienced or untrained cyclists Vittorio Veneto offers a cycle path along the river Meschio. The path begins from Serravalle and winds along the river for about 10 km to the opposite end of town. Cyclists will be delighted by the sight of a landscape where nature and history go hand in hand. Since ancient times, the river Meschio had been the only source of energy for the textile factories of carded wool; at the biegining the water was directly operating the machines, and only a long time later the water had been used to produce electricity for the looms. The City of Vittorio Veneto offers bikes to anyone who wants to enjoy a bike ride around town. It is a free service.
