The route follows initially a safe bike path by a canal and then secondary roads, from where it is possible to enjoy some beautiful views over the lake. It reaches Bardolino, famous for the production of the homonymous red wine, which is one of the most charming villages by the lake: take the time for a visit, for an ice cream and why not a swim! The route goes now on the bike path of the coastline until Lazise, another beautiful village with the harbor, and then reaches Peschiera del Garda. By train Verona is just 15 minutes away, don't forget to get the bike ticket!

Author’s recommendation

Period suggested: all year long. Try to avoid summer weekends because of the traffic in the area of Lake Garda.
