Centre based cycling holiday on Lake Maggiore
This 5-day guided road cycling holiday is real escape and riding on few-traffic roads for intermediate cyclists, who love to climb. This cycling holiday based in one hotel showcases the area from the comfort of our lakeside hotel at Colmegna.
Lake Maggiore is Italy’s second largest lake and set against the resplendent backdrop of the Pre-Alps and of the Monte Rosa Massif. Lake Maggiore extends from the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland far into the Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy.
There are plenty of routes for road cycling around Lake Maggiore and its mountains. And with the lake road typically wider than around Lake Como, and quieter than Lake Garda. It's a more popular spot amongst the local road cyclists: a perfect country, in other words, for bike riding.
We have designed our cycling holiday around Lake Maggiore to be enjoyable, funny and flexible. The accommodation will be as delightful as the region’s magnificent scenery. Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you.
You can ride through wooded valleys, narrow climbs, fast descends 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 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).
