Italian Lakes & La Dolce Vita

14.09. – 21.09.2024

A journey on two wheels along enchanting shore worlds.

Welcome to an exciting journey along the breathtaking Italian lakes – Lago di Como, Lago di Maggiore and Lago di Varese.

These regions of Italy are not only known for their picturesque landscapes and charming towns, but also offer first-class opportunities for us road cyclists. On this trip we will get on our bikes and explore the shores of these lakes, framed by majestic mountains and offering a fascinating mix of culture, nature and culinary delights. No bags need to be packed this week, our hotel will remain the same all week.

The week is also ideal for accompanying persons who do not ride racing bikes.
Enjoy the week in Italy in the wellness area or while strolling through the old town of Varese.
Here you can really indulge in the sweet ‘dolce far niente’ of Italy and enjoy the delicious Italian cuisine to the full.

If you can’t get enough of Italy, we recommend booking our “Italy – Coast to Coast” cycling week immediately afterwards. Here we cycle from the Ligurian coast through Tuscany to the Adriatic Sea.
