Cycling in Italy

Our Italian destinations double as brilliant choices for cycling holidays. Thanks to flat coastal roads around Lido di Jesolo, breathtaking paths in Lake Garda and hillside stretches that break up parts of Tuscany, you can have the pick of the must-pedal bunch. The combination of historic landmarks and mouth-watering dining add the cherry on top.

The Route: Head south from Riva del Garda towards Salo on this circular route, tracing the lakeside as you go. If you’re keen to soak up the scenery, stop for a moment or two there and in Sirmione, and you’ll be blessed with glittering waterside views. Torri del Benaco is utterly charming, too.
