Pin It

For an ideal ride into the heart of Italy, there’s no better locale than the easy roads of the Po River Valley and Lake Garda.
Far more than a pleasant reel, our routes lead you to stone hamlets, charming lakeside villages, and historic cities where cherished traditions still thrive. Here, gentle roads hug villa-lined shores coveted even by ancient Romans. Corn fields and lush vineyards sway in the caress of warm breezes.  And medieval cities with dreamy names – Borghetto, Castellaro Lagusello, Desenza, Sirmione – whisper of ages past. Join us in Italy’s fertile, flat farmlands for a ride unlike any other.
