On the campingsite ‘San Biagio’ alla Manerba

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! 😁

Part two – From Bassano del Grappa to Lago di Garda

So after having 1 or 2 nights at the beach enjoying the white sand and the salty water I’ll continue my trip by train to Bassano del Grappa.

Here I will set up my tent at the campingsite I´ve used to visit in 2016 on my way to Rome. This time I´d like to have a walk through the medieval old town.
So on the next day I will cycle up the valley of the river Brenta to the Lago di Caldanazzo which was fantastic in 2016.

Cycling down to the heart of Trento I´m going to follow the Adige Valley (Etsch) staying overnight at an “Agriturismo”. That´s a farm where you can pitch up your tent and get some (organic) breakfast or dinner made in the region.

So we´ll follow the cyclepath BicItalia 1 to Lazise and further on to the famous town of
Sirmione where I´d like to spend some time.

Finally I´m going to reach the campingsite next to Manerba where I´ll stay for 2 nights or so. Here you can enjoy the beauty of this outstanding lake.
