Europe's most beautiful bike ride

What could soon be Europe's, if not the world's, most beautiful bike path is being constructed 60 meters (197 feet) above the lake to complete a spellbinding 140-kilometer circular route.
The first sections of the $124 million project are expected to open in the summer of 2018, with the full circuit of the lake completed in 2021.
Known as "Garda By Bike," the 2.6-meter-wide path will circle the whole lake connecting three intersecting regions -- Lombardy, Veneto and Trento.
The sleek steel and wooden route features elegant iron fences built as futuristic balconies with views of mountain peaks, boats sailing by and the picturesque villages that dot Lake Garda's shores.
Over-lake sections of the path will connect with more challenging sections that rise up into the hillsides, but these can be skipped using Garda's numerous boat connections.
The good news is that the whole path won't be exclusive to cyclists but also accessible to pedestrians.
Viewpoints and refreshment booths are expected to be built at a later stage to allow visitors admire sweeping panoramas of Italy's most beloved lake and enjoy romantic sunsets.
The route is fated to become one of Italy's top year-round tourism draws and has already been hailed as "Europe's most beautiful bike ride" by local media.
