VARESE, LAND OF HOSPITALITY

3 days: discover Varese and Sacro Monte by bike - from 450€

Itinerary: 

Day 1 – Varese warm up ride (Routes: 30km-Total Ascent: 300m)

Our tour kick of easy with a spin around the Lake of Varese, which is totally flat on a beautiful cycling path. During the ride we will try the bikes and stop for a nice Espresso!

Once back, we’ll have a relaxing walk in Varese and enjoy a rich Aperitivo before a beautiful dinner.

Day 2 – Tour of Campo dei Fiori Mountain (Routes: 60km – 80km-Total Ascent: 700m – 1200m)

This is a beautiful ride around the main mountain of Varese, the Campo dei Fiori.  After an initial flat start, the remaining day’s ride is undulating with only one slightly difficult climb at the end. The ascent up to the Campo dei Fiori is challenging but you’ll be enchanted by the view.

The shorter course will take us half way up the mountains to the fascinating village of Sacromonte, where we will take a walk and a good coffee.

Day 3 - Varese Loop to Lago Ceresio (Routes: 70km – 95km -Total Ascent: 1100m – 1650m)

Our final ride is challenging as we ride up to Monte Sette Termini (seven peaks) north of Varese. After a fantastic descent we’ll ride along the picturesque Lago di Ceresio which is the natural border with Switzerland. The last 30 km are hilly as well, but we will stop for a local cheese tasting along the route to get some calories back in! Some hard work to get back to Varese and celebrate with a good beer!

The longer route has a different final with one extra climb before town.
