Mountain Biking on the Shores of Lago Superiore


If you enjoy taking a nice, long ride on your bike, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy Mantova, Italy especially the scenic route along the lake!

The city of Mantova (or Mantua in English) in Italy is a city of art — the main artistic, cultural, and especially musical hubs of Northern Italy and the country as a whole. In fact, it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you’re a biker interested in Arts, this beautiful city is a must to see!

Winter may not be the best season for cycling, but I assure you that the shores of Lago Superiore in Mantova are great even in the winter! Especially for us Lomographers since we’re always looking for adventures and beautiful scenery to capture.

I know by heart these paths near the lake, because it was here where I started to learn how to ride a bike when I was young! And now, I use these paths as a training center.

You can reach these locations following the paths that starts from the Castle of S. Giorgio along the shores of the lakes surrounding Mantova.

If you go there in the summer, you can see this kind of landscape from the cycle path:

During the winter, you will run into crazy sunsets like these:

In addition, if you continue along the path that leads to the country Soave, you can enjoy the waterways with small artificial waterfalls to oxygenate and purify the water.
