Full description
Leave the tourist crowds behind and immerse yourself in the green countryside of Lake Garda's southern shore. Your tour begins from Peschiera del Garda, from where your guide meets you and finds the perfect electric bike for you and your group. From there, begin an easy and fun ride which sees you riding along beautiful vineyards whilst relaxing and admiring the surrounding nature. Visit the tower that was built in 1878 on the hill of San Martino to commemorate the events of the Italian Risorgimento. It was designed by the architect Frizzoni and the engineers Luigi Fattori, Monterumici, and Cavalieri. The top of the 74-meter-high tower can be reached by following a long spiral ramp, and at the entrance there is a bronze statue of Victor Emanuel II by the sculptor Dal Zotto. The walls were painted by the artist Vittorio Bressanin from Venice, and a lighthouse located on the tower continuously emits a light that illuminates and warms the sky with the colors of the Italian flag. In addition to the tower you can visit the Risorgimento Museum and the ossuary, which contains the remains of those killed in the infamous bloody battle. At the conclusion of your tour, make your way slowly back to Peschiera del Garda to return your e-bike and wrap up your experience.
