Parco del Ticino: It extends from Lake Maggiore to the confluence with the river Po, over a total area of about 92,000 hectares, in 47 municipalities in the provinces of Varese, Milan and Pavia.
Thanks to its heritage of nature, landscape, art and history, the Ticino Valley, in 2002, has been recognized by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. The cycle path is a path of great interest for two-wheel enthusiasts: in the land of Varese the cycle path, about 80km long, starts from Sesto Calende and winds through the typical pre-alpine scenery that embraces the Ticino valley. On the riverbed, it is not difficult to spot white herons and gray herons, egrets, mallards and coots.
