<p>Breakfast. Move east and ride the 48 tornanti of Passo dello Stelvio, the highest pass in Europe. The project of the road starts back to 1818 to an idea by Austro-Hungarian military strategists to make easier and faster the links between Tyrol and Lumbardy. In 1820 they built the first tract from Bormio to Giogo and in 1825 the road had been completed. Dinner and overnight stay in Sondrio province</p>

<p>Breakfast. Another “dancing” day through the Alps. Passo Gavia is demanding and when you are at the pass (m.2621) you feel a conqueror! Then ride south towards Iseo Lake. At the foothills of the Alps, the Lago d’Iseo is a little windy lake with pictoresque little towns, the little islands of Loreto and S.Paolo and the big Monte Isola island. Dinner and overnight stay in Iseo area.</p>

<p>Breakfast. Bordering Lake Iseo you will reach Franciacorta vineyard landscape, home to what many wine connoisseurs are calling Italy’s best new sparkling wine. Franciacorta refers to both the geographical region and the wine itself, that is hand-harvested, fermented in wooden casks, and then again in the bottle for at least 18 months. Enjoy the scenery and a local dinner with great wine. Dinner and overnight stay in Franciacorta.</p>

<p>Breakfast. Back to Bologna, considering a break in Mantua, a Unesco heritage city, untouched by urban development with a rich artistic and cultural history and...great food such as tortelli di zucca!
