Wonderful collection of cycling artifacts presented in a modern facility. I visited after riding up from Bellagio and the whole experience was fantastic for avid cyclists. Thoroughly recommended for anyone with any interest in cycling history. It does have an Italian bias but that is...More

What an interesting collection of cycling memorabilia and historical bikes at this great little museum. Located next to the church of the patron saint of cyclists. Church had an incredible array of memorabilia too. Well worth a look

Il Ghisallo surely deserves it's place as one the the great cycle climbs in Europe. The cycling museum and chapel at the top are both well worth a visit, even if you didn't cycle there. The ride is a hard climb out of Bellagio, followed...More
