The Greenway of the Oglio River
Castles and fabulous petroglyphs. Passes made famous by the Giro d’Italia and Liberty spas. And Lake delicacies to be sampled
Leaving from the Passo del Tonale in the Parco dell’Adamello, the gradients increase but nearly all are descents until Darfo Boario Terme and Lake Iseo.
Here, it is advisable to stop and undertake, on the following day, a fine tour along the shores of the lake. An attractive alternative is to take the ferry from Sulzano or Sale Marasino goes to Monte Isola.
The next stage leaves the lake behind to follow the banks of the river Oglio as it crosses the plain to the Po.
Darfo Boario Terme
Under the Liberty loggia of the Ancient Spring, bottles can be filled with water rich in minerals salts from natural springs.
ALPINE MIDDLE AGES
On the summit of a hill, between Alpine peaks. The walls, the tower and the church of Castello di Breno are a journey into the Lombardy of the Middle Ages.
A LITTLE BIT OF PREHISTORY
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the petroglyphs of Val Camonica, can be visited in 8 equipped parks scattered around the towns of the valley.
Among the fishermen’s catch, trout, tench, pike and sardines. Baked tench with polenta brings earth and water together and restores exhausted cyclists.
AMONG THE FISHERMEN
Load the bikes on the boat to visit Monte Isola on Lake Iseo. With fishermen’s villages on a hillside.
The late medieval castle lies amidst the hills and vineyards where the Oglio joins Lake Iseo, a short detour before tackling the roads of the plain.
A strategic estate since its foundation in the 10th century. Scenes from the film “Ladyhawke” were shot at Castello Sforzesco.
The Tombe Morte of Genivolta is where the three great canals that feed the dense network of irrigation ditches in the Parco dell’Oglio North intersect.
Passo del Tonale
In the Parco dell’Adamello, a mouthful of Alpine air at 1,883 metres. Passo del Tonale is one of the decisive ascents/descents of the Giro d’Italia.
