Lake Maggiore: 4 nights
For some of the best cycling you will do in Italy you should treat yourself to spending some time in this area.
Having 4 nights in this region allows time to get the jet lag out of your legs along with ample time to explore the area around Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore. The rolling hills combined with some difficult climbs will give you a good rounded experience of this beautiful region.
Varese: 4 nights
The Province of Varese is truly a cycling paradise from mid-March until the end of October and an area steeped in cycling history. The AIS European Training Centre (ETC) for Australian athletes is located in Gavirate on the shores of Lake Varese. Orica-GreenEDGE, the professional Australian cycling team, has their secondary training base on the shores of Lake Varese. The team trains on our roads. The Giro d’Italia almost always regularly visits the region. Our rides will feature undulating and peaceful roads with little traffic among gently rolling hillsides, valleys and mountains and above all, views across the Prealps, Alps, the Monte Rosa Massif and Italy’s northern lakes. There are 10 lakes of different size that surround Varese.
