Malcesine Panoramic Tour
A brief tour characterised by the panoramic road in Malcesine which offers an opportunity to view Lake Garda from a different perspective. Quite a tough climb, but suitable for everyone.
The routes that offer a marvellous view of Lake Garda are truly too many to mention. This tour takes in most of the east coast of the lake.
We set off from Torbole then reach the Campiano Pass, a panoramic point above the town of Malcesine. Its olive groves, famous for producing one of the finest olive oils in Italy, frame a setting that is one of a kind. At the pass, there is a fountain to cool us down, whereas the descent offers a striking view, with the blue waters of the lake blending into the green of the olive trees.
A relatively short route, suitable for all cyclists. The climb is short, and the gradients are not taxing. A morning departure and afternoon return trip will ensure that we constantly benefit from a favourable wind.
