I have never been interested in bicycles or cycling - until now... A really great museum on cykling and bikes at which I, not even interested in cykling, stayed for over 90 minutes. And the chapel was really special...

On bikes, my husband and I appreciated the poignancy of the many cycling artifacts left at the shrine in memory of cyclists who have passed on. Then we wasted an hour looking for the bike museum which may be near Lake Como many miles from...More

We cheated... we rode a bus! We caught the bus to Asso from Bellagio (tickets from Bar San Remo) and got off at Ghisallo. The trip was rather hair raising but soooo pretty. The views back down to Bellagio and across towards Varenna were stunning....More

First confession - I didn’t want to go here. Second confession- my husband’s family are obsessed with cycling. Right, that said half the party didn’t know anything about cycling and still enjoyed it immensely. The museum is a fascinating collection of bikes and photos about...More

This was less of a visit and more of a pilgrimage. After having read about this place for years, it was wonderful to see in person. The chapel and grounds are beautiful, and the pieces of cycling history inside are second to none. A great,...More

I am pleased to say I cycled to this chapel 3 times in 4 days. On each occasion I said a pray of thanks which served me well as I am not very good at descending. As other people have said the cycling history is...More

My wife indulged me and accompanied me on a pilgrimage to this holy site of bicycling. Literally. In 1945 the Pope proclaimed The Madonna di Ghisallo as the Paton saint of cyclists. The climb itself is not long, but the 14-15% sections will get your...More

My husband rode there on his bike and I met him by car - we didn't even know that this existed before arriving Varenna and I'm so happy that we found it. It is a must see for cycling enthusiasts and there's a cool little...More
