Lake Garda tour based in one hotel
Cycling tour in the beautiful south of the biggest Italian lake
During this nice cycling trip you will stay always at the same accommodation enjoying at a time nice bike excursions and the comfort not to pack your luggage every day. You will discover the lively and coloured Peschiera, lying on the river Mincio which is the unique outflow of Lake Garda; this will be your base to explore all around the southern Garda region. You will follow the shore towards different attractive places such as Garda and Desenzano and reach the city of Romeo & Juliet, Verona, so rich in history and where the sweet loops of the Adige flowing through the city together with the low hills surrounding it at the northern side contribute to creating such an harmoniously beautiful landscape. An experience not to be missed!
Cycling tour along well maintained cycle paths and less frequented side roads. The entrance to Verona is sometimes more busy. Mostly flat to hilly terrain with a few short climbs.
