From Riva del Garda head towards Limone sul Garda taking the “Gardesana Occidentale (Western Gardesana)” road: approximately 20 km partially into tunnels flanking the Lake Garda from Trentino to Lombardy. Gone past Limone cycle beyond another tunnel (inside of which you will see the crossroad to Campione sul Garda) and turn right, from here on starts the only uphill tunnel, approximately 2 km long, taking to the Plateau of Tremosine. Turning right you will pass through Piovere, Gardola and Prabione, characteristic little villages perched over the lake. From here on you enter the Brescia hinterland. By cycling a steep downhill and following 2 km climb through the woods you reach Vesio and afterwards Ustecchio. A steep but panoramic downhill takes you back to Limone sul Garda. Travel the Western Gardesana through again heading north and get back to Riva del Garda.
For a shorter tour, turn right just before Campione del Garda, by taking an uphill road of approximately 10 km we can arrive at Vesio and then follow the tour. In this case we would pass through a marvellous gorge where some scenes of the 007 “Quantum of Solace” movie were filmed.
We remind that headlights and rearlights as well as the use of reflecting suspenders are obligatory in tunnels, even considering that most of these are illuminated.
