Cycling holiday around the Northern Italian Lakes

Description

This weekly guided road cycling holiday showcases the region around Northern Italian Lakes, offering undulating roads and climbs for intermediate cyclists, who love to climb.

 Cycle the road less travelled through the Northern Italy's Lake District: rolling hills wooded valleys, narrow climbs, fast descends. We have designed our cycling holiday around Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, Lake Como, Lake Varese to be enjoyable, funny and flexible.

Nestled in the heart of Lombardy, close to Piedmont and Switzerland, in the foothills of the Swiss-Italian Pre-Alps, our two hotels at Varese and at Colmegna on the shores of Lake Maggiore provide the perfect launchpad from which to explore the best lakeside riding and and the mountainous roads in between.  

Amateurs can take part in the UCI Gran Fondo World Series Tre Valli Varesine every October. In 2018 Varese hosted the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships. Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you.

You can ride without forgetting to enjoy what our area has to offer: ancient villas, parks, churches and hermitages which were built from Sixteenth Century to the Nineteenth Century, exibitions, history, art, culture.

 In particular we suggest  to visit Villa Panza at Varese, Villa della Porta Bozzolo at Casalzuigno, Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso on Lake Maggiore and Sacro Monte of Varese (historic site on the UNESCO Worldwide Heritage List).
