the beautiful bike week

September 8-15, 2018


We like to think that all bikes are beautiful, but even more so in Italy! Our friend Peter in Seattle is the owner of the indoor bike training studio, The Beautiful Bike, so this week is dedicated to his clients and friends who want to celebrate their hard work with Peter by riding some of the most beautiful roads in the world. All that hard summer training will pay off when you arrive at Hotel Il Perlo and have your first cappuccino on the patio then check out your Bottecchia for the week. We'll have private guided tours with ComoLagoBike of some of the best rides in the region - routes with long gentle climbs and others that take you spinning past lakeside villas and cafes. Each ride will end with a scrumptious meal at Hotel Il Perlo and the afternoon free to enjoy all that Lake Como has to offer. Add a few dinners at some of Bellagio's best restaurants and you'll realize why visitors leave entranced!


The week is the 7-Night Pro Half Board all-inclusive package for €1,280. There are 10 rooms available, based on double-occupancy, so upwards of 20 spots available.
