Garda and the course of the Chiese

A velodrome fit for champions. And more: churches, lakes, museums and an excellent virgin olive oil. From Garda to the course of the Chiese

The macroroute of Axis of the Chiese river is an itinerary that will take you to the eastern part of the Region. Its 107 kilometers can be divided in 3 stages or, for the more sportive types, they can be covered in a single ride that will show you the banks of Lake Idro, Lake Garda and the Oglio river.

After the first stage to Cima Rest, a descent follows to Molino di Bollone before climbing towards Capovalle. From here, a long descent leads to Idro, on the shores of the lake of the same name, from where the path continues along the river Chiese and the Val Sabbia to Tormini.

The third stage is the cycle path of the Naviglio Grande Bresciano to Montichiari, once again meeting the Chiese. Then, passing trough fields and farmhouses, you eventually reach the river Oglio, near Canneto.

AT TABLE
Bagolino

In dialect, Bagoss means “dweller of Bagolino”. But it is also the name of a highly-prized cheese. Perfect for replacing lost calories.

ACROBATICS
Casto

Balancing tests on logs, climbing aids and a “zip-line” in order to fly suspended in the void attached to a steel cable in the Parco delle Fucine.

A LITTLE HISTORY
Gavardo

The Archaeological Museum of Val Sabbia is housed in a church building, with the prehistoric remains of the settlements in the western Garda area.

TRACK EXCITEMENT
Montichiari

The Montichiari velodrome is where the professionals train. The true greats of cycling have pedalled here. To experience the thrill of speed on the track, a bicycle can be hired.

TIMELESS
The territory of Montichiari

San Pancrazio, a jewel of the 12th century in the Romanesque style, lies on a hill. During equinoxes, the sun strikes precisely the central window of the apse.

AMONG CHURCHES
Roè Volciano

The paved cycle path of the Naviglio Grande Bresciano, from Salò to Brescia: 28 kilometres of quiet roads amidst ancient churches, bridges and old mills.

LIQUID GOLD
Polpenazze del Garda

The tasting of the extra virgin olive oil of Garda can be enjoyed in one of the olive mills of Valtenese in the lower lake area. It is perfect with freshwater fish from the lake.

CURIOUS TRAVELLER
Calvisano

The Museum of Rural Life preserves tools and ethnographic remains of shoemaking, animal rearing, tailoring, milking, spinning and woodworking.

THE OTHER LAKE
Idro

Lake Idro is hidden behind Garda amidst wooded slopes and mountain villages. The panorama from the Rocca d’Anfo, a 15th century bastion at 700 metres, is beautiful.
