Lake Bolsena

Lake Bolsena

The vast expanse of water in the Tuscia Viterbese area and its two islands are prime tourist destinations in their own right. Added to them is the small and lively Bolsena itself, with its medieval village wrapped in a basin and the modern part towards the tourist harbour and the restaurants on the promenade. It is no coincidence that Bolsena is an Orange Flag resort certified by the Italian Touring Club for the quality of its environment, its artistic heritage and its capacity for hospitality. Here, history goes far back in time, even further than the 13th century when the Monaldeschi Castle began to rise: the territorial museum that can be visited in the castle recounts and bears witness to these long events, starting with the prehistoric settlement and the Etruscan and Roman civilisations. Once outside, one stops on the square to enjoy the view, and then heads towards the Renaissance Palazzo del Drago, which used to be the seat of the papal legates, and the thousand-year-old Collegiate Church of St. Christine, with its late 15th-century façade and wide Romanesque nave. In the church, a 13th century fresco on the arch leading to the Grotto of the Saint is the first historical representation of the famous Eucharistic miracle of Bolsena, the origin of the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi. A gate gives access to the room with the tomb of the martyr, portrayed lying on her sarcophagus in a moving 15th-century terracotta statue. In the Lake, the pair of islands is located closer to the other village ofCapodimonte, along the opposite shore from Bolsena. On the Martana Island it is said that Amalasunta, the daughter of the Ostrogothic king Theodoric, was imprisoned and then murdered in the 5th century; whether true or not, ruins of a castle and an original 9th century church remain. Less ancient is the church on the Island Bisentina: an architecture possibly by Giuliano da Sangallo the Younger, where the captain of the papal army Ranuccio Farnese the Elder has been resting since the mid-15th century. The Bisentina is municipal property, and you can eventually disembark there.

giro d italia 13 hero

Following the footsteps of the Giro d'Italia 2022: Sanremo - Cuneo

To pedal along this itinerary is to experience a duel between your head and your heart. The former requires you to keep your eyes on the tarmac, the latter to lift your gaze; towards the hills, the fortifications and the terraces that will enchant you. Three sceneries in one Wide and sandy beaches, interspersed with cliffs and long stretches of rock: we are on the Riviera dei Fiori, in western Liguria, where the hills covered by Mediterranean scrub run down to the sea. The scenery changes radically in the Alte Langhe, the Piedmont hills on the border with Liguria devoted to viticulture. Here the slopes are harsher, but always enchanting in their changing dress each season: green in spring-summer, snow-white in winter, yellow-orange with the autumn foliage. Lastly, the province of Cuneo, lying in the Upper Tanaro Valley, a natural environment that is still uncontaminated, with dense forests of oak, chestnut, beech and pine trees, where the lines on the horizon become more vertical. These are the walls of the Ligurian Alps and, further in the distance, those of the Alpine Arc. Riding your bike from Western Liguria to Piedmont The Riviera dei Fiori and the Piedmont hills. The Tyrrhenian Sea and the Alpine Arc that enraptures the eye and soothes the mind. It is hard to imagine a richer itinerary than this, winding along the roads of the 13th stage of the Giro d’Italia 2022. In addition to the natural heritage, there are historical, artistic and spiritual highlights; as well as an invitation to all cyclists: look up. Don’t limit yourself to the climbs (one actually) on your bike, but also take advantage of the towers, aerostats and domes. From above, this area will appear even more marvellous.

Following the footsteps of the Giro d'Italia 2022: Borgo Valsugana - Treviso

Along this route from Trentino to Veneto everything is shaped by nature: the landscape, art, trades, and city planning; even the pace of your pedal strokes – brisk but easy– is dictated by it, so as to let you feel the breeze from the hills and the scent of wine cellars All the shades of green Enclosed between the Lagorai chain to the north and the Vicentine Pre-Alps to the south, Valsugana is a paradise of centuries-old forests, thermal springs, hills planted with vineyards and meadows dotted with farmsteads. Here, eco-sustainability is the first commandment: at the centre of the tourism model are the health of the environment and the wellbeing of the people inhabiting the area. It is a philosophy that extends to the Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, a Unesco World Heritage Site: impervious hills, embroidered with parallel rows of vines, a symbol of the perfect symbiosis between man – with his wealth of knowledge – and nature with its resources. Finally, the lower Veneto plain, an area rich in water resources, including the Piave, Sile and Livenza rivers. A cycling route through Valdobbiadene From Valsugana, a valley-model of eco-sustainability, to Treviso, rolling through the hills of Valdobbiadene with its fine vineyards. Here we tell you about an easy-to-ride wavy itinerary, inspired by stage 18 of the Giro d’Italia 2022. What can you expect? A land in which the climbs are not impressive, but other special effects are. It turns into works of art, leaves room to man and his agricultural tools, and heat puffs from its belly. In short, it becomes a friend, even for you who are about to ride across it
