In a wonderful combination of sport and food, you can cycle northern Italy in the “”Biciclettata delle Torri” cycling tour which passes through the picturesque streets of Ceresara, past some of Lombardy’s loveliest rural courts and noble country homes, and also enjoy a kind of culinary tour of the area, too.
The tour takes place on May 16th from the Piazza Castello at Ceresara, making its way through more than 20 km of Lombardy countryside, with various restaurant stops along the way. A wonderful lunch of typical Italian products from Mantua finishes the day.
The event is organised by the “Compagnia delle Torri” cultural association, which also organises a great medieval event in Ceresara every year. The event celebrates the history of two feuding noble families, and the peaceful agreement between two historic figures, including the Duke of Mantua.
