LOMBARDIA

LOMBARDIA

THE HEART OF CYCLING

Lombardy and Lake Como are some of the most specular and majestic places in the world to ride your bike. This stunning scenery in the northern part of Italy has created some of the most mythical landscapes for cycling. Still today, it lends its roads to one of cycling’s most monumental one-day races: Il Lombardia.

Situated at the foot of the Alps, nestled between Milano and the Swiss border, Lake Como offers some of the most challenging and rewarding riding you can imagine; from short, steep ramps to hour-long climbing with Italy’s biggest lake as a dramatic backdrop. History has been written on these roads by the champions that have defined modern cycling. Fausto Coppi, Gino Bartali, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Michele Bartoli, Laurent Jalabert and Paolo Bettini have all conquered some of their most epic victories here. The climbs and roads around Lake Como are as beautiful as they are hard.

Join us on the trip over these roads and breathe in the captivating beauty of some of the most rewarding and challenging riding Italy has to offer. We would like to invite you to explore Il Lombardia with Pas Normal Studios and get a feel for every aspect of this truly unique corner of Italy.

VILLA NAVALIA

Villa Navalia is a modern luxury villa on the west bank of Lake Como. The villa is situated just north of Menaggio with stunning views of the lake. Our private chef will prepare breakfast and dinner for you at the villa while you spend your morning preparing for the day’s ride or are simply relaxing on the terrace in the evening.
