1Itinerary

Starting from Riva del Garda, upon reaching Limone, turn right towards Tremosine. You then arrive at Vesio and take the road to the left towards Pieve and then go down, along a narrow but beautiful road, traveling by motorbike the road of the Forra, the Porto / Pieve, where the Brasa river flows to finally return Garda lake just before Limone towards Riva del Garda. The route is around 40/50 kilometers. On the contrary, the road of the Forra can be taken from the south, coming from Campione del Garda.

The SP38 is also splendid in the evening thanks to the spectacular lighting of the Forra and the sunsets that Lake Garda offers.

In the past it was also the setting for a breathtaking chase starring the most famous secret agent in the world, the legendary James Bond.
