Lake Garda

 

Day 1 Peschiera del Garda

Individual arrival.

 

 

Day 2 Solferino (40 km)

First day on bike among Lugana vineyards, typical white wine of this area. You’ll reach Solferino, the site of the famous battle that ended the Italian Second War of Independence in 1859, providing the basis for a united Italy. Back to Peschiera by bike and overnight.

 

   

Day 3 Borghetto - Parco Sigurtà (30 km)

Leaving Peschiera, today we head for the Sigurtà Garden Park, skirting the River Mincio along the famous cycleway that leads to Mantua. Our first port of call is the riverside hamlet of Borghetto, listed among “Italy’s most beautiful villages” and renowned, along with neighbouring Valeggio, for its tortellini. Sigurtà covers a surface area of 600,000 sq. meters, with paths linking 18 ponds, meadows, a labyrinthine maze, a medicinal plants garden and large sundial, as well as an educational play farm.

 

 

Day 4 Day of fun

Today’s menu is strictly for kids only (of all ages!): Gardaland, one of Europe’s top theme parks, offering dozens of rides and attractions. The park can be reached by free shuttle service from Peschiera station. Alternatively, why not enjoy the Sealife Aquarium or the Canevaworld Aquapark (also reachable by free shuttle).

 

   

Day 5 Parco Natura Viva (30 km)

The Parco Natura Viva has been described as a zoological park where “the animals actually look contented”, and today’s excursion takes us into the heart of a conservation project with a difference, which includes a number of endangered species. There is an added bonus for cyclists: a reduced ticket price.

 

 

Day 6 Garda (ferry + 25 km by bike)

Today you’ll cycle among hills and hamlets surrounding the lake, thanks to a short ferry transfer to Garda, the small town which gave its name to the lake. Once in Garda, you’ll start cycling towards Bardolino, famous for the red wine, and from there you’ll cycle back to Peschiera, crossing the beautiful lake landscape.

 

   

Day 7 Peschiera

After breakfast, end of tour.
