" The Andiamo team do everything so well! The Lombardia was a fabulous well-planned experience thanks to everyone involved. The programme was well thought out in every detail. The rides around Garda and Lake Como were amazing. We had a great group, although there were different levels, we all supported each other and had a lot of fun! The Pinarello F12 are exceptional. Most people love their own bikes but many would not have a bike that is as nice as the F12’s. "

10th October 2021, the Gran Fondo Il Lombardia at Lake Como: this Boutique Cycling Experience is our last cycling experience for the 2021 season, and one that should not be missed! In addition to our own Lake Garda, we think Lake Como is one of the most beautiful places in the world to ride.

Scenery abounds as you ride along the lake as well as into the hills and through beautiful villages. This Gran Fondo follows the day after the famous Tour of Lombardy, so you can be inspired by the pros on Saturday and follow in their footsteps on Sunday. What a way to end the cycling season!

 The Gran Fondo starts and ends in Cantù with two climbs including the legendary Ghisallo and the crazy steep Muro di Sormano. When the climb up to the Madonna del Ghisallo became part of the route of Il Lombardia , a local priest, Father Ermelindo Viganó, proposed that the Madonna be declared the patroness of cyclists. Pope Pius XII then confirmed it should be so.

The shrine of Madonna del Ghisallo contains a small cycling museum with photos and artifacts from the sport. An eternal flame burns for cyclists who have died.

PACKAGE

We have built this package for you with flexibility in mind. Stay at Garda Bike Hotel before, or head to Garda after to relax with rides along the lake, or through our beautiful vineyards. It is totally up to you, and we will personalise your holiday to your liking! 

This is a 7-night (minimum) package, which includes:
• 4 nights in Lake Como, from Thursday 07th October to Monday 11th October 2021
• a minimum 3 nights stay at Lake Garda, which can be extended further to suit your needs.
