The route leaves Verona following a bike path that runs along a canal, flat and safe. After a small climb we reach the town of Bussolengo, from where we can admire the view over Valpolicella and the Veronese mountains. From Bussolengo we follow secondary roads that lead into the beautiful countryside of the morainic hills: Lake Garda is nearby and can be admired from the top of a hill. Pleasant streets between olive trees and vineyards finally lead to Lazise, ​​where we meet Lake Garda. From Lazise to Bardolino we cycle on a pedestrian path that runs alongside Lake Garda, then we return to the hinterland, riding up on easy road uphill immersed in the countryside. Finally, the return to Verona follows a bike path.

Author’s recommendation

We suggest to bring swimsuit and a change of clothes, a dip in the lake is ideal for hot summer days.
