From Porto Zattera in Rivoltella (0.0 km) take via Colli Storici going south and pass the A4 motorway flyover (4.3 km) to the crossroads for the Tower in San Martino della Battaglia (5.5 km). From here turn left and, shortly afterwards, you will find yourself in front of the imposing war memorial. The itinerary continues up to a roundabout, go straight towards Preseglie and turn right near Cascina Ceresa (7.7 km) and, once in Cascina Vestona, turn left until you reach the road to Pozzolengo (9.2 km) going south. After about 200 m, on the left, go uphill on the signposted cycle path until you reach the village of Pozzolengo (10.9 km) and immediately after the Municipality building turn right onto via Diaz and again onto via Verdi to come to the square in front of the Castle, where you will enjoy a beautiful view of Lake Garda and the mountains surrounding it. Continue along via Morazzo to exit the village on unmade road until you approach Lago Mantellina (12.6 km), a wetland area typical of moraine environments. Beyond the lake, follow the perimeter of a large golf course until you reach the asphalted road (15.0 km), then cycle towards the village of Selva Capuzza following the signs. After a few minutes you will reach the crossroads to the Tower of San Martino (17.0 km), then cycle back the way you came until you reach Porto Zattera (22.5 km).
