Your Cycling Holidays in Italy

This cycling and activities based holiday is perfectly designed with families in mind, located in the picturesque Peschiera de Garda on the southern shores of Lake Garda.

7 Day Tour

Day 1

Arrive at Verona or Venice and transfer to Peschiera del Garda on the shores of Lake Garda and check into your hotel. Peschiera del Garda is a fortressed town on the south-west of Lake Garda with beautiful cobbled streets interwoven with canals and parks. There are lots of cafes and restaurants in the pedestrianised area and the rest of Lake Garda is easily accessible by a ferry.

Day 2

Once fitted with your fully equipped bikes, your first day of cycling will take you on a circular route through the picturesque landscape of Lugana vineyards towards the town of Solferino (25 miles/40kms). Solferino is a small town in the Mantua province of Lombardy and the site of a famous battle.

Day 3

For your second day of cycling you will ride from Peschiera along the gentle River Mincio cycle path that leads to Mantua, reaching the Sigurta Garden Park which is situated next to the ancient towns of Borghetto and Valeggio (21 miles/35 kms). Sigurta Park covers 600,000 square metres with paths linking 18 ponds, meadows, a labyrinth maze, beautiful gardens and woodlands. The gardens have been open since 1978 and ever since have been popular with both botanists and families enjoying the fusion of a historical park and modern garden. You can cycle around the 7km park cycle path or take the panoramic train if you prefer.

Day 4

Today it is time for a rest from the saddle, providing the opportunity for children of all ages to visit Gardaland, one of Europe’s top theme parks. The park is on the south eastern banks of Lake Garda offering many rides, attractions and a sealife aquarium. You can also visit Canevaworld Aquapark and both are easily reached by a free shuttle bus from Peschiera.

(21 miles/35kms) There are 1500 animals to see including giraffes, hyenas and cheetahs in this superb park north east of Peschiera.

Day 6

The last day of cycling is a fantastic trip starting with a ferry ride (included in price) to Garda on the east of the lake, before hopping on your bike explore its cobbled streets, market shops and ice cream parlours. (19 miles/30 kms). The route heads back towards Peschiera via Bardolino one of the most stylish towns on Lake Garda and famous for its red wine.
