Lake Como, in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, is an upscale resort area. It’s better known for the dramatic scenery, set against the foothills of the Alps. At the bottom of the southwest branch lies the city of Como, home to Renaissance architecture and a funicular that travels up to the mountain town of Brunate. From an architectural point of view, the Renaissance Villas alone are worth the ticket. In professional cycling, on the other hand, Lake Como is a Mecca, the battlefield of one of the 5 “Classiche Monumento”. The Giro di Lombardia. The ascent of Ghisallo, Civiglio, and the Sormano Wall. Places of worship for those who love cycling.
Recently Lake Como is celebrated in Hollywood by movie stars who make it a holiday destination, a film set, a classy place, and even a source of pride. But regardless of fashions, objectively it seems that nature has made a particular effort to create a water basin set in a spectacular setting: The Alps. An upside-down Y-shaped lake, a bucolic masterpiece with majestic tones that awaken the senses. A perfect picture can cross over into the sense of art. The Lake Como self-guided cycling Trip will lead you to the most iconic places without making too much effort. Grab your bike and cycle along the western shore of the lake via the Greenway del Lago. Enjoy the Renaissance Villas and their incredible gardens. Indulge in a lakeside lunch in Varenna and take a deep breath looking at the mountains from the lakeside of Bellagio.
