Indeed, if this tour takes place entirely on tarmac roads, it’s mostly at altitude, often at the 2500 meter mark, with many technically difficult roads. You are going to find a lot of hairpins and stretches of narrow, steep roads overlooking precipices, so you might want to abstain if this sounds daunting, because it will be!

A meticulous selection of natural sights from northern Italy for the beauty of the roads, landscapes, scenery and colours, makes this circuit a real concentrate of experiences and emotions where nature is revealed in all its splendour!

A magnificent tour with an impressive series of legendary mountain roads and passes, which names are on the lips of many bikers, starting from the great northern lakes to continue among the glaciers of the highest alpine passes and end in between the majestic passes of the Dolomites, Verona (UNESCO site) and Lake Garda.

Day 4: Lake Como - Bormio (225 kilometers / 139 miles)

Another hop into Switzerland will take you on a series of splendid roads crisscrossing between alpine passes, glaciers and lakes, to the icing on the cake: the legendary Stelvio Pass with its 2758 meters of altitude (the second highest of Europe) and its 88 hairpins: 48 on one side and 40 on the other.
