Italy's Lakes District has always been a transition zone between peninsular Italy and Alpine Europe. This series of lakes created by the melt-water of alpine glaciers enjoys a unique micro-climate that harbors olive and citrus groves, exotic botanic gardens, villas, and extraordinary vistas. Long an attraction for writers and artists, the Lake District provides an incomparable bicycle experience. You'll cycle from Lago Maggiore to Lake Lugano in Switzerland onward to Lake Como, Lago d'Iseo and the finale on the shores of Lake Garda. Along the way you'll have a guided tour of Bergamo Alta - one of our favorite cities in Italy! ...enjoy a sampling of fine Franciacorta sparkling wine and learn more about its history from a local vintner.

Highlights: Lake Maggiore, Stresa, Lake Lugano, Lugano, Switzerland, Campione d'Italia, Lake Como, Madonna del Ghisallo Bicycle Museum, Four 2-night stays, Begamo Alta - Guided tour, Monte Isola, Franciacorta sparkling wine tasting, Lake Garda.
