Det skal I lave

Celebrate the best locations on the lake - be surprised as we take unexpected roads to reveal the rural charm and many stories behind the popular lakefront facades.

We visit the must-see villages in the Tremezzina area, with their elegant lakefront villas such as Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello, Villa Balbiano and Villa Sola Cabiati that line the main road. We also reveal the lesser-known and more rural aspects behind the main lake road - discover the unplanned olive groves, green pastures, hidden churches and old stone wash houses where women would meet and scrub the day’s laundry together. We will weave in and out of the famous ‘Greenway’ path, ride around the piazza in Lenno, through the typical village of Griante and follow the tracks of Mussolini, recounting the stories and intrigues of his final days. Suggestive lake views follow us throughout the journey leaving you with a sense of what it is like to live on Lake Como. This tour is perfect for first time visitors and regulars to the lake.

Technical difficulty: Low - Short stretches of cobbled road. No technical uphills and downhills. General agility is needed as the roads are narrow and uneven.

I am a qualified mountain bike guide and writer. I have written books about my travels hiking and cycling around Italy. The amazing experiences I have had travelling this way convinced me to give up my office job in public relations and follow my passion full-time. I have cycled nearly every region of Italy from lakes, to seas, to unbelievable mountain passes. There is no better way to experience Italy than on the back of a bicycle.

I moved my family to a typical village in an undiscovered part of the famous 'central lake area' to be able to lead tours that not only show the well-known side of the Lake but also the hidden gems, real life and ancient traditions that the locals still uphold today.

I have 9 years experience as a volunteer first responder for the Red Cross, trained in administering CPR and First Aid.

We thoroughly enjoyed this bike tour with Luigi! The route was fantastic and the views were breathtaking! Equipment was top notch and our guide Luigi was very knowledgeable. My husband and I would highly recommend this bike tour! Best part of our trip to Lake Como

We had a great bike ride and experienced the region in such a personal way. He adjusted the itinerary to accommodate our capability and we had a spectacular day.

We had an awesome time biking with Luigi. The electric bikes make this experience accessible to almost anyone. We were able to see an entirely different view of the lake and surrounding area. Great way to spend a morning or afternoon!

We are a couple in our 60s who had a super week exploring the delights of Lake Como. One of the highlights was our ebike tour with Luigi. From our first booking, Luigi and Emily were very prompt in replying and providing lots of details about what to expect and where and when to meet. The bikes were new and very easy to handle and Luigi explained all the safety procedures before we set off. The first part of the tour was off road and mainly downhill or flat allowing us to get the hang of our first time on ebikes. Then we had a number of hills to climb which were much easier using the various speed settings on the ebikes including turbo function! We travelled through the beautiful countryside, cycling through the narrow streets of many villages - all the time Luigi was giving us lots of historical and cultural detail, taking photos for us and making sure we cycled safely. We found it a wonderful way of seeing hidden gems inaccessible by car and off the usual tourist trails. 10/10 Luigi and Emily and highly recommended!

This is a great tour with e-bikes already included (not a separate bike rental involved). A view of the Menaggio area that you cannot get by walking or driving.

What a gem of a tour! Luigi is a wonderful guide and went above and beyond to make our ride memorable for a lifetime. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and of course about cycling. My 70 year old parents were with us and he was more than helpful and patient when we needed breaks/getting up the steep parts. We saw so much of central Como than we had been able to on our own the past two days. He helped us arrange cabs to reach their office and suggested a great little place for lunch! His family was also so warm and welcoming at the end of our ride. 5 stars- definitely recommended!
