Historically you have the 26th ISDT International Six Day Trials held in Varese in 1951. When you follow, at least in part, the route of the historical event, you will pass the Valganna Valley before you arrive at the wonderful town Luino, located on the eastern shore of the Lake Maggiore, and then continuing to ride up to the Cuvignone Pass.

From there a spectacular descent leads you to Cittiglio admiring some of the most beautiful pre-alpine waterfalls. Here you turn towards the Lake Maggiore arriving at the Laveno Mombello bay and then you take the road along the lake up to Santa Caterina del Sasso, a spectacular hermitage built on a cliff above the lake.


After Santa Caterina you take the direction towards Valcuvia and shortly after you can stop at the Villa Della Porta Bozzolo, with its marvellous garden, before you are heading towards Brinzio and then to Sacro Monte, one of the four Unesco World Heritage Sites enriching our territory. After 115 kilometres and an intense day with sightseeing on the motorbike you return to Varese city centre.
