Nature and relax
Our proposal to take a walk in the green in one of the many parks.
A wide variety of itineraries offers a complete understanding of this territory where "Mediterranean" environment gradually blends into "Alpine" as we slowly climb higher and higher.
There are some unusual, if not unique, factors which determine the fortune of cycle tourism in the hill region: the first one is undoubtedly due to the beauty of the landscape in this green area, full of tree lined roads, full of impressive scenery and gentle slopes up and down the hills. The second one is its geographical position, which offers many possibilities: the Southern shore of Lake Garda is easy to reach from anywhere in Alto Mantovano, as well as the nearby cities of Verona, Brescia and Mantova, centres of fine arts. There is also the region's gastronomy and wines, served at a low price in many refreshment places along all these ways. There are several itineraries if one wishes to find quiet and lonely places by taking one of the many rugged country lanes off the main road.
Discovering the flavours of the lake and its hills
Discover Lake Garda through its agricultural produce and the range of food and wines. Let the civilisation of the table lead you to an awareness of the enviroment, culture, history and traditions of the places that lie along its banks and in the surrounding areas.
