After a few kilometres, we reach the border. Since Switzerland is not part of the European Union, we will need to carry some form of photo ID. Right after we cross the border, a gentle hill takes to Mendrisio and we rapidly reach Riva San Vitale, a small town located on the southern part of lake Ceresio.
We ride past Melide and after a few kilometres we reach Lugano, where we ride along the beautiful and pristine lakeshore. A short climb and we reach another Swiss-Italian border crossing.
We head towards Porlezza and we turn left to avoid the busy state road 340. We then ride up towards Carlazzo and Gottro, where we can enjoy the view of the small but quaint Lake Piano from the hill. We climb gently, then we come to the last short but challenging hill, with an incline of up to 13%, which takes us to Naggio, where we can visit the eighteenth-century church of “Madonna Addolorata“.
We quickly descend towards Menaggio, where we have coffee in a wonderful piazza next to the lake. We return to Como along a 30-kilometer lake shore side road.
We cross Tremezzo and slow down to give us time to observe Villa Carlotta and its gardens. A detour to reach Lenno and its Gulf of Venus. Shortly afterwards, , we get to Ossuccio with its XII century bell tower and the small church of Santa Maria Maddalena, located near the Comacina Island.
We ride along the old Regina road riding past typical small villages and arrive at our destination.
