Ponte Tresa

Discover the beauties of Malcantone by bike

Ponte Tresa - Pura - Curio - Novaggio - Miglieglia - Breno - Arosio

Take the Shuttle Bus, back through the original villages and the beautiful landscape by bicycle.

You will arrive from Lugano easily with the Ticino Ticket (taking the Ponte Tresa Express) so you get to us for free and with no traffic-stress.
At the train station in Ponte Tresa you will find Bike Shuttle Ticino, which takes you and your bike (or rental bike) to the highest village in the Malcantone, Arosio, at 860 m above sea level! In Arosio we jump on the bikes and you ride with our local guide or alone, comfortable on asphalt roads through old Ticino villages (mostly easy downhill).

You will be captured by the fascinating view from the church of Breno, and you will take a break in Novaggio for the best homemade ice cream of the Malcantone, where you can cycle through the narrow streets of Bedigliora.

Plan 2 to 3 hours of your vacation for taking home unforgettable moments.
You can also do the tour on your own, you will receive a small tour description.
