Clockwise from left: Bikes are welcome on most tracks, as long as you respect pedestrians’ priority; cruising down the Movimënt trails; sunset at the Gardenacia Hütte; the ‘enrosadira’ occurs only when the weather is just right

There are places in Alta Badia that even an e-bike won’t get you to. An e-bike would get you rather further up a mountain trail than a regular bicycle, of course, and considerably further than any form of motorised transport (helicopters notwithstanding, I suppose) but once you start getting properly up close to the high peaks, you are compelled to resort to shoe power.

About Italia!

We have a splendid line-up of features to inspire your travels this month: our cover star Lake Maggiore has a wealth of stunning locations to explore, both around its shores and on the lake itself. If you like a good hike, our itinerary around the byways of a small corner of Maremma will defi nitely stretch your legs. For cricket fans we have the extraordinary tale of a most unlikely team – and they are really rather good! We have e-biking in the majestic Dolomites and we meet a 3-star chef there who’s really making a difference. And for culture vultures, we have the story of the rise, fall and rise again of Venice’s aptly-named La Fenice opera house.
