Déroulement de la prestation

A relaxing day of cycling the Italian side of Lake Lugano exploring hilltop villages, rock pools and panoramic churches. 
This tour is perfect for anyone wanting to explore a little further off the tourist track but not wanting to commit to too many kilometers or uphills. We set off from the historic agricultural hamlet of Cardano and start with an easy ride along the cycle path following green fields and lakes until we hit the first beach of Lake Lugano. Cycling along the beach, you will enjoy the expansive views of the water and mountains and the quaint streets of the old centre of Porlezza town. Our destination today is the Valolda, the valley that leads us to the Swiss town of Lugano. It is a rather forgotten valley that is in fact full of hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. On our list today is the Santuario della Caravina, offering a spectacular balcony over Lake Lugano. We ride up cobbled walkways to the church entrance, and follow scenic verdant roads as we head to the village of Castello. Perched on a hilltop, it is one of the single best examples of an ancient Italian mountain village. The church of San Martino is affectionately referred to as the Sistine Chapel of Lombardy for it's beautifully frescoed dome. The lake views will not disappoint either. Our day would not be complete without dipping our feet in the crystal clear water of some rock pools we find along the way. Enjoy a lunch stop in an atmospheric local restaurant before we wind down a relaxing country road back to Cardano.
