Itinerary and map

Explore at your own pace

Lombardy – Tessin: an unforgettable tour in Italian-speaking country, from the north of the boot to Tessin, the southernmost canton of Switzerland and the only one in which Italian is the sole official language. The route, including excursions into the backcountry, follows the mountain chain rift and the most northerly portion of the famous Garde, Côme and Majeur Lakes, where the azur blue water and lush vegetation invite sunset strolls. Not only did the region inspire Goethe and Stendhal, but it is also home to the shrine - near Bellagio - of the Madonna del Ghisallo, declared the universal patroness of cyclists. Here, the bicycle is sacred!

The package includes:

- round-trip air transportation for passenger and bicycle with Air Transat;
- 14 nights in three- or four-star hotels (double occupancy);
- 14 breakfasts and 5 evening meals;
- bus transfer.

From 12 to 28 cyclists, accompanied by our guide.
