BICICLETTAIO MATTO'S RECOMMENDED BIKE TOURS BY BIKE AND BY BOAT WITH
Lower Lake Garda
- Visit the Castle at Sirmione and the Grotte di Catullo.
The easiest and most enjoyable way to visit Sirmione is by bike. Once you have passed the Lido Galeazzi on the right and entered the peninsula on Via XXV Aprile. On arrival at the Scaliger Castle you need to continue on foot through the historic centre of Sirmione as far as the Grotte di Catullo at northern end of the peninsula. From here, there is a stairway down to the famous spiaggia Giamaica(Jamaica Beach).
Suitable for any Type of bike.
- Visit Peschiera del Garda and ride the bike path along the river Mincio
Leaving the rental shop Biciclettaio Matto, a stop for something to eat/or drink in the historic centre of Rivoltella is recommended. Peschiera is an easy ride from the rental shop thanks to the cycle path: it is one of the most characteristic fortified towns on the lake, and is completely surrended by defensive walls and canals. From Peschiera, you can acces one of the most spectacular bike path in Italy, la Ciclabile del Mincio, which follows the Mincio river connecting lake garda with the historical city of Mantova. The bike path takes you through 40km of parkland and medieval towns - all framed by the natural beauty of the river valley.
