The big boat trip

Cycling day 15/11 km ~ From Torri del Benacco to Torbole and up to Loppio

You have read correctly – 11 km were just on bike computer today. This comes as my plan A was to cycle all the way from Torri del Benacco to Torbole – but some cyclists told me not to do so as it was really dangerous.


So I checked out the timetable of the boats and there was a ferry departing at 11:17 h – arriving at Torbole at 13:20 h.


So I had a fantastic journey over the lake accompanied by sunny weather and marvellous views.

After my arrival at Torbole I enjoyed the beach and had than to cycle up to the pass – behind this there is again the Agriturismo in Loppio – with a pool!

Tomorrow will be a real cycling day – there are about 95 km to do to Bolzano where I’ve booked already a bed in the youthhostel.

Jumping from Maderno to Torri del Benacco by boat

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.
