From Garda to the Po

Over a weekend, you can cycle further to the Valtènesi Brescia hills, which feature vineyards, castles and views of Lake Garda.

You can even head towards the city of Brescia, with its welcoming historic squares, where you can relax seated outside a café.

Finally, along the Po, you can explore the Bassa Mantovana and the Oltrepò, the land torn from the waters of the Great River, which abounds with testimonies of material culture and fine dining opportunities.
