We suggest a pleasant stay in Sirmione also for those with a passion for cycling, as bicycle holidays are good for the body as well as for the spirit.
The Lake region and the Moraine Hills right on its hinterland have several striking bicycle routes, as shown in the map on-line.
For the most temerarious ones, we remind that Hotel Broglia cooperates with Donau Touristik agency, which specialises on organising bicycle journeys from the starting point. Should you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
ROUTE A - km 44.20
CASTIGLIONE D/S(I) - MEDOLE(II) - CAVRIANA(III) - SOLFERINO(IV) - CASTIGLIONE D/S(I)
This route allows you to enjoy different characteristic aspects of the Moraine Hills landscape: the wild scenery of the northern woods, the orderly and well-preserved southern landscape covered with fruit trees and vineyards and the Po valley extending from the base of these hills.
ROUTE B - km 50.40
SOLFERINO(I) - S.MARTINO DELLA BATTAGLIA(II) - POZZOLENGO(III) - CASTELLARO LAGUSELLO(IV) - VOLTA MANTOVANA(V) - CAVRIANA(VI) - SOLFERINO(I)
This route runs through the historical sites of the battle of Solferino and S.Martino: it winds along the armies’ line-ups which faced one another on the historical day of June 24, 1859. As witnesses of those events, isolated old residences and rural courts can be noticed here and there. From a landscape point of view, the tree-lined paths and sweet sun-kissed rolling hills alternate in the heart of the Mantuan moraine hills.
ROUTE C - km 48.00
MONZAMBANO(I) - PONTI SUL MINCIO(II) - POZZOLENGO(III) - CASTELLARO LAGUSELLO(IV) - VOLTA MANTOVANA(V) - VALEGGIO SUL MINCIO - MONZAMBANO(I)
This excursion runs through typical landscapes characterized by a castle, more or less intact, according to the different historical events, located in strategic positions between the Lombard and Venetian territories. A flourishing nature and beautiful hills rich with spontaneous vegetation are crossed by several different rivers and lakes, which accompany us on the discovery of these sites.
Every cycling route is marked by yellow signs specifying the association’s logo, the name of the town of destination and the direction.
They are a great help and sometimes an indispensable reference in the tangled web of roads which cross each other in this area.
