The best gravel roads of Verona and Lake Garda

Three days by bike on the rolling hills that surround Lake Garda, riding on beautiful gravel roads surrounded by the gorgeous countryside spotted with stone-made farmhouses, ancient churches, vineyards, olive groves, medieval villages and great panoramas over Lake Garda. We base in a nice village in the hinterland and we cycle three itineraries, ideal for gravel bike: the routes are not only for gravel and off-road experts, but also for first-timers, the dirt roads are pretty smooth and the itineraries go slightly up and down. The gastronomy side of the trip is one of the highlight: let be tempted by the numerous wineries and trattorias along the routes to savor a glass of Lugana or Bardolino and some local dishes.

  • Between ancient villages and medieval castles
  • The lonely white roads of the morainic hills
  • A refreshing dip in Lake Garda
