Lake Varese: the cycling route and footpath

Where
Lago di Varese
Schiranna, Varese

Lake Varese lies at the foot of Mount Campo dei Fiori and is bordered by the city of Varese and another eight towns in the province.
Schiranna is one of Varese’s most popular lakeside destinations with visitors as it also offers the Zanzi Park and a great cycling route. The park is one of the city’s many leafy, green areas with picnic tables and other facilities to ensure a fun day out. The cycling route winds its way around the lake for about 30 km (nearly 19 miles), offering a fantastic way to keep fit or simple enjoy the picturesque countryside.
One of the gems on Lake Varese is Isolino Virginia: the islet is a prehistoric site of global importance that can be easily reached by boat from Biandronno or by bike or foot along the cycling route and footpath from Lake Comabbio.

 Dog of all sizes allowed in leasch at Lido of Schiranna and at cycling route in compliance with the hygiene and public safety rules*

*For any other question please check the guidelines from the Municipalities
