First of our new Euro-Series, "Lake Como Italy." The wonderful, three-pronged Lago di Como covers an area of 56 square miles in Lombardy, northern Italy near the Swiss border. The towering Alps create a formidable backdrop as you explore around the lake, cycling past classic Italian architecture, trellised garden patios, romantic lakeside retreats and various local watercraft. The pastel-and-earthtone color combinations, unique bell towers and ivy-covered archways of Lake Como's quaint villages will charm you as it has celebrities and dignitaries across the globe who have made it their summer home. Ride after ride you'll pass sublime lake views along cool and misty shores from Lecco to Bellagio and Como to Tremezzo. Prego!
