DISCOVER VALTENESI HILLS

Tour information

In this fantastic Tour starting from Desenzano D/G iding our bikes we initially travel an asphalted road with lake view for then head inland through the gentle Morainic Hills passing through the Abbey of Maguzzano, the medieval villages and castles located in the municipalities of Valtenesi.
The tour continues in the direction of Polpenazze del Garda.
During the journey we will immerse ourselves in unspoiled nature among small villages, vineyards and olive groves where we can meet special people who with continuous dedication and love for the territory accompany nature to produce high quality wine and oil recognized worldwide.
We will skirt the Palafitticolo “Lago Lucone” site, a UNESCO heritage site dating back to the Bronze Age.
The way back is characterized by a series of gentle climbs and descents on particularly fun paths that run alongside the site and take us calmly to Desenzano Del Garda for the end of the Tour.
