Cycling day 14/25 km ~ From Manerba via Maderno to Torri del Benacco
I left this morning my sunplace of Camping San Biagio on some smaller roads and headed towards Saló.
Wonderful ancient town which would be great to visit again. Finally I reached the ferry to Torri del Benacco which takes you only 30 minutes and 8,-€ to cross the lake.
So I found a campingsite next to the street with a beach and put up my tent. Afterwards I’ve made a scenic walk through the woods up in the hills over Torri – nobody there!
After that walk you need definitely a bath in the lake and in the evening I went out with a guy from Germany who is cycling in the mountains around the Lago di Garda.
Cycling day 13/51 km ~ From Lazise to San Biagio
After this cool evening yesterday I’ve decided to set my alarmclock 1 h later – this was not really a good idea. But I’m on holiday…
I tried to find a small road but this wasn’t so easy.
I cycled along Lago di Garda on the BicItalia 1 – but this was only in the beginning a good idea because the path went off the beaten track
So my next stop was Desenzano with its ancient harbour and I had lunch there.
After that break I continued to Sirmione – it was so crowded that you weren’t allowed to go inside the ancient town. But it’s absolutely worth a visit, you can walk around the island or jump into the crowd and enjoy fanatic ice-cream or other delicious food.
Now came the hard work to do – riding along the big roads with no cyclepaths…but I’ve got to say that the drivers overtook me carefully – and we are not in the highseason. In the end I arrived at the campingsite which was my big second aim as we’ve got pictures of that place at work and I always wanted to go there.
It is called San Biagio next to Manerba and is really beautiful. It has a small island you can visit (with an excellent stone beach) and there is a a mountain with a ruine. Next to it you can walk to a viewpoint – and it’s marvellous!
So at this campingsite I’ve got my second day-off and used it for the walk and a day on the beach – we had 30 degrees – great! 😁
