While indulging on pizza, pasta, opera and vino, it's easy to forget the beautiful nature Italy has to offer. We've got a special gem for you here: nestling between the southern foothills of the Alps, Lake Maggiore is waiting for your visit. Often overshadowed by its better known brother, Lake Garda, it is a perfect destination for those who prefer nature to be slightly more untouched. So you can enjoy everything the lake has to offer, we've planned this 5-day long trip for you. You can look forward to scenic views, wild nature, medieval architecture and above all, demanding tours. Viva Italia!

    If you still have a bit of 'air', you could still cycle through the Onsernone valley from Centiglia in Cavigliano. There steep walls lure without end. Those who can not decide on the turnoff at the 'Ponte oscura' should perhaps try both. After Spruga it gets steeper and the valley is narrower. In the
