63,40 km cycling loop from Vienne

From Vienne, this cycling loop winds along small roads amidst vineyards and orchards, where over thirty types of fruits thrive. Wine enthusiasts will take the time to discover the wines of Vienne, which have been revitalized with fruity flavors. For something stronger, the Pear Brandy is a local specialty to savor at the Colombier distillery in Villette-sur-Vienne. Vienne alone is worth the visit. This city, labeled for its art and history, boasts around forty remarkable monuments inherited from the Gallo-Roman era and houses the only Renaissance-style castle in Isère. If you combine your visit with the Jazz festival held every July in the unique acoustics of the ancient theater, then the highlight of your journey is guaranteed! This loop is not overly challenging despite a few hills.
