Tour of the lower eastern lake shore

Day 1. Departure and arrival: Biciclettaio Matto shop in Desenzano del Garda, for an incredible tour of the lower lake. We start by riding towards Peschiera del Garda: the route is almost entirely on cycle tracks and passes near Sirmione, famous for the Caves of Catullus and the Thermal baths. Along the way we'll enjoy fabulous views of the utter beauty that is Lake Garda. Reaching Peschiera del Garda, near the Fortress we take the Ciclabile del Mincio towards Ponti sul Mincio, the perfect place for a short break or an aperitif. From here we head through hilly farmland and vineyards in relaxing rural scenery, to Pozzolengo, and then San Martino della Battaglia, where there's an obligatory stop to visit the Tower. To conclude the tour, we head to Rivoltella and then straight on for Biciclettaio Matto.

Peschiera del Garda

1° Day
12 km - 77 m Drop
A picturesque town on the southern side of Lake Garda, Peschiera is famous for its pentagonal sixteenth-century Fortress, and is one of the lake's most delightful places. The Fortress is an architectural jewel enclosed by a perimeter wall with distinctive buttresses and entry gates, and since 2017 it has been listed by UNESCO as a Venetian Work of Defence (16th-17th centuries). The river Mincio, which runs out of the lake, branches into three channels which join to the south of the town, creating a truly enchanting arrangement of canals.
