Cyclists welcome

Venice by bike

Those arriving in Venice by bike can count on the hospitality of Santa Teresa, a B&B that shares their passion for bikes, ecology and outdoor living.

B&B Santa Teresa has been certified by the FIAB (Italian Federation of Friends of the Bicycle) as a bike-friendly hotel. It is an Albergabici point for Venice where bikes can be left in a safe and convenient outhouse. It offers everything necessary for cleaning bike frames and mechanical parts, as well as equipment for emergency repairs. Santa Teresa not only looks after the bikes but the cyclists arriving in Venice by bicycle as well, and prepares generous breakfasts for those doing sports. It also offers the right setting in which to relax and recover after a day spent in the saddle.

The B&B is set in an excellent location near one of the last green areas still left in town. It is easy for cyclists to reach, and is located near the Venezia Mestre Ospedale train station. This allows cyclists to put their bicycles on the train and reach Venice by bike. Santa Teresa is also the perfect point from which to explore the Venetian countryside by bike, and discover this truly charming area.

Staff members at Santa Teresa are always on hand to recommend itineraries and consult maps with guests. In fact not everybody knows that many areas of the historical centre of Venice are off-limits to cyclists. Aside from the areas on dry land (Mestre and Marghera), only some islands are open to bikes, such as Lido, Pellestrina and Sant’Erasmo, as well as certain areas of the Lagoon.
