Drone footage has been released showing progress on a project to build a €100m, 140km cycle path around the edge of Italy’s largest lake.
ATT’s rendering of the completed project
The footage shows how the Lake Garda path will cantilever from the edge of cliffs, creating the illusion of riding through the air. Â
The project is being undertaken by ATT of SalÃ², and is being funded by a group of regional councils, including Veneto, Lombardy and Trento – who expect to recoup their investment rapidly from increased tourism.
Currently, it is possible to ride a short stretch from Torbole to Riva del Garda at the northern end of the lake. The scheme is due to be completed in 2021.
