From Como to Cremona

Canals, tricycles and a funicular that made history. And, to drive away hunger, high-calorie soft cheeses (with or without bread)

Once at Monte Bisbino, it is possible to retrace the route taken, descending as far as Como.

From here, the route heads for Milan along the charming Cycle Path of the Parks that connects Lura Park with North Park.

On the third day, leave Milan heading east along the cycle path of the Naviglio della Martesana. From Cassano d’Adda, along the Vacchelli canal, Crema and Cremona can be reached.

  1. The Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, which preserves 40 vintage bicycles in storage, displayed during exhibitions, of which the oldest is an 1818 Draisine.
     
  2. The cycle path of the Naviglio della Martesana canal, commissioned by Francesco Sforza in 1457, the lock gates of which were drawn by Leonardo on a few sheets of the Codice Atlantico.
     
  3. The WWF Il Caloggio Nature Reserve, a short detour from Bollate to encounter awaits with goldfinches, swallows, pheasants, newts and emerald toads. With a beautiful butterfly garden.
     
  4. The funicular from Como to Brunate. Inaugurated in 1894, it climbs up the mountain to 500 metres, giving a unique view of the lake and the Alpine foothills.
     
  5. The awn, the sweet, symbol of Como, impaled by a typical wooden stick of olive or cherry in memory of a branch that fell in the dough in a lakeside tavern.
     
  6. The Cycle Path of the Parks: 41 kilometres, dirt roads in some stretches, more than half in protected sites. From Rovellasca Manera to Lura Park, north of Saronno, and Milan’s North Park.
     
  7. Gorgonzola, to be tasted in the place that gave the cheese its name and that celebrates it with an autumnal festival.
     
  8. The Prehistorical Park of Rivolta d’Adda. See tyrannosauruses and brontosauruses up close.
     
  9. The courtyard with portico of Pandino Castle: a classic square layout with corner towers.
     
  10. The canal bridge between Vacchelli and the river Serio in Crema, a showpiece of hydraulic engineering.
