Cycling holiday on Lake Como, Italy

A Cycling holiday on Lake Como roads is one of the best ways to see Lake Como. The pace lends itself to exploring places on and around the Lake. Cars whizz past, barely noticing the beauty hiding behind the bends and curves 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 Lake Como and explore a different mountain peak or flat stretch of road meandering through small lakeside villages every day, is a dream.

A cycling holiday on Lake Como can be enjoyed by all cyclists, regardless of fitness level. Seeing the Lake by bike is also a low or no carbon way of getting around.
