Where to go cycling from Peschiera?


cycle lane of MINCIO

Borghetto sul Mincio, or simply Borghetto, is a small part of Valeggio sul Mincio. A small jewel with a medieval heart, located between Lake Garda and Verona and recently included in the list of The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy. A village built in complete harmony with the Mincio river, where the fragile balance between history and nature has been kept intact over the centuries. Walking through the narrow streets of Borghetto is equivalent to taking a dip into the past, into the Middle Ages. That past that can still be breathed in every single corner of the village.

The Parco Giardino Sigurtà is a 60 hectare nature park located in Valeggio sul Mincio, in the province of Verona, 12 km from Peschiera del Garda. It won the most beautiful park in Italy in 2013 and the second most beautiful park in Europe in 2015. The Sigurtà Garden Park contains naturalistic and historical attractions: in the months of March and April you can admire a million tulips, which they represent the most important flowering in Italy and the richest in Southern Europe; the avenue of roses, which hosts 30,000 remontant roses from May to September; a labyrinth, eighteen mirrors of water, where aquatic plants bloom between June and July, and immense green meadows.




Sirmione is located along the peninsula of the same name which extends into Lake Garda for about 4 kilometers and which divides the southern lake shore into two parts. Part of the municipal territory extends east of the peninsula to include that of Punta Grò. The hinterland extends towards the morainic hills that surround the southern part of the lake itself and includes a part of the Lugana production area.The municipality borders Peschiera del Garda to the southeast and Desenzano del Garda to the southwest. The section on the lake borders to the east with Lazise and Castelnuovo del Garda and to the north with Padenghe sul Garda.



The municipality of Lazise is a small village overlooking the southeast shore of Lake Garda. A quiet village where the atmosphere is relaxed as you stroll along the lakefront or among its narrow streets, squeezed between ancient buildings and enclosed in the mighty city walls. The Municipality of Lazise is the first free municipality in Italy. The Scaliger castle finished to be built in the 1300s is absolutely worth seeing.




Castellaro Lagusello is a part of Monzambano. The village stands on a small hill overlooking a heart-shaped lake.
