Cycling holiday on Lake Como, Italy 1

Stunning scenery and challenging switchbacks: cycling in Lake Como, Italy

A Cycling holiday is one of the best ways to see Lake Como. The pace lends itself to exploring places cars whizz past, barely noticing the beauty hiding behind the corners of the road. And cycling with a group of friends, staying in a private villa, where you can take a ferry to every part of the Lake Como and explore a different mountain peak or flat stretch of road meandering through small lakeside villages every day is a dream.

Fit bike enthusiasts have mountain peaks and switchbacks to challenge even the most discerningly trained cyclist, while less fit friends and partners in the party can hire electric bikes to keep up and also enjoy the breathtaking scenery around Lake Como.
