Nice little chapel on top of a climb, very road cycling theme in and outside the chapel. There is also a cycling museum. The view on east part of lake como is very nice

I was a little concerned that this might be a bit touristy or tacky but I found it to be quiet, spiritual and to be done rather well. It has a nice feel of a small private collection of memorabilia with nothing more important than...More

If you are interested in cycling history you absolutely have to visit this museum and chapel. The small church overlooks the lake and has the race bikes of the late Fabio Casartelli and Fausto Coppi amongst other memorabilia. The museum is much more extensive, retracing...More

On a charity ride we climbed the road from the lake. It was not easy by bike, but worth every pedal stroke. The church was better than any picture.

Beautiful monument to cycling. You must ride up her if you are a cycling enthusiast. No where near the traffic of other rides and so nice to be there when you arrive. Donate a euro in the chapel.

Nice place to visit if you are into biking. In the museum you can see some old pictures from Giro Italia, but also bikes - from old ones to the very modern models.

This was definitely one of the highlights of our break, especially as we knew nothing about it beforehand. It's a chapel and a museum dedicated to the patron saint of cyclists. It's heavily road race influenced, both the chapel and museum house some stunning bicycles...More

This is about 10km from Bellagio, up a reasonably challenging climb. The church has become a shrine to cyclists with bikes, jerseys and other memorabilia. There is a great cycling museum next to it. A must for cyclists.

The most wonderful little church at the top of a mythical climb. It is full of bikes and Italian cycling memorabilia. Museum next door is a must. The climb itself is about 10 km and quite challenging, but a wonderful experience.

I am not a cyclist but my husband is and was keen to pay the shrine and Museo del Ciclismo a visit before he cycles the hill tomorrow. The little church is beautiful and very atmospheric and I was really moved by the photos of...More

We didn't notice any hiking trails (not that we were specifically looking out for them) nor signposts pointing to trails. The road up is narrow, and I would think a dangerous undertaking to try to walk it. My suggestion... More

Thanks for the replies. We caught the public bus (C36, I think) from near the Hotel IL Perlo Panorama, near the outskirts of Bellagio, which was close to where we stayed. The museum was terrific and church very interesting... More
