Garda – Verona by bike

Length: 37 Km

This journey starts from the elegant village that gives the name to the largest lake in Italy: Garda.

Riding towards the Rocca del Garda, when you reach the Hermitage of the Camaldolese, you can enjoy a wonderful view.

Then you will find the village of Bardolino, known throughout the world for its the homonymous wine. This village is surrounded by olive trees and vineyards and reveals precious treasures such as the Church of San Severo.

To reach the Adige cycle path, it is possible to go beyond the enchanting Riviera degli Olivi or to go down towards Pastrengo passing through the village of Calmasino.

If you choose the first option, you will reach Rivoli Veronese, an inhabited center built on the slopes of the Monte Baldo. This place is important because it was the scene of battles during the First Italian War of Independence and here you can still see the forts that were built from the Austrians to defend the valley of the Adige.

Keep on riding towards Verona, along a beautiful cycle path from which you can admire the Valpolicella, the land of delicious wines such as Valpolicella, Amarone and the Recioto.

Then you will pass through the villages of Pescantina and Bussolengo, which were important river ports in the past.

Verona is now close. You will access to this beautiful city through Chievo.

Leave your bike and have a walk to enjoy the visit to the city center.

From Piazza Bra or Piazza delle Erbe you can immerse yourself in the alleys of the historic center to discover the most famous monuments, such as the Arena, the Roman Theatre, Juliet’s house and Juliet’s Tomb.

Congratulation, you did it!
