Brembana Valley Cycle path

Description

The development of San Pellegrino Terme, famous for its waters and also because it had one of the first, and rare, casinos in Italy, was at the origins of this cycle path. The Brembana Valley cycle path begins in Zogno, in the heart of the valley. It follows the old railway track and has splendid views of the river and steep rocky cliff faces. The path runs through perfectly illuminated tunnels where trains once passed.

Small villages and towns en route preserve traces of the ancient Via Priula, a trade route built at the end of the sixteenth century by the Venetian Republic to connect Bergamo with Valtellina. The cycle path continues to the upper valley and ends in Piazza Brembana, once the end of the railway line. A stop in the town of San Pellegrino Terme is a must to see beautiful examples of the Belle Époque.
