Lago di Garda is the biggest body of fresh water in Italy. Exploring Lago di Garda by bike is the best way to go about it because the 158-kilometer long shoreline provides all kind of touristic attractions, just kilometres from each other. Manors and vineyards in one, clubs and bars in another village. Located right between Milan, Brescia, Verona, and Venice the lake is in a perfect holiday position in every season. These cities are inviting by themselves for bikers, but the Garda Lake has its own admirable forts, and cities right there.
Taking on Lake Garda by bike is also considerable for the whole shoreline is followed by well made, interconnecting cycling routes. Theoretically, you could bike from the watery castle of Sirmione to the Dolomites in Riva del Garda. Realistically, there’s a ferry.
Even Romans knew that this lake is perfect for letting off some steam. Citizens of the Roman Empire visited the lake for the same purpose as we do today with the only difference that they couldn’t tour around Garda by bike. The poet Catullus praised the landscape, the city of Sirmione – and his own villa – here at Lago di Garda 2000 years ago.
Today, the whole lake area is excellently organized to the convenience of the tourists and recreation seekers. Nothing shows it better than the more than one and a half hundred kilometre long biking route. But, hotels - cheap and extravagant - bars restaurants museums, parks and beaches are at disposal of the highly regarded audience. Because all these leisure centres are located just a few kilometres from each other, Sharewood recommends going around Garda by bike, instead of a car.
