Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

This special route leads you from Switzerland to Italy, from the Alps to Milan, passing Lake Como. The emotions start with the start in St. Moritz. On the railway (the Thusis-Tirano section is part of the UNESCO World Heritage) you will be able to admire a unique panorama through the windows. Enjoy the cycling path “Sentiero Valtellina”, traversing the valley to Colico, offering a marvellous view over the Lake Como and the surrounding mountains. Take a boat, in Bellagio, the pearl of the lake and have a rest before reaching Lecco. Then follow the river Adda, in direction Vaprio d’Adda, where the river shows you the border between the provinces Milan and Bergamo. Continue on the cycling path of the channel Martesana. Along the track you will find old power utilities, which where the first ones to supply Milan with electricity. It is said that genius Leonardo da Vinci has designed part of this channel. The landscape which is accompanying you to Milan is a bit unexpected, mainly farm houses, magnificent villas, jetties, old rural houses and villages, immersed in well cured gardens.
