The cycle path is suitable for all types of users and, in some sections, is divided into two carriageways. Along the route there are several tunnels that automatically light up as the cyclist passes. Alongside the beauty of the alpine and foothill areas, the route reaches villages and hamlets of remote charm, often located in isolated positions, such as Oneta or Cornello dei Tasso, where time seems to stand still. In these places, the evening lighting of the tunnels also offers breathtaking scenery.

From the cycle path at the bottom of the valley there are numerous itineraries that are perfect for an E-bike trip to discover the hamlets and the beautiful natural slopes of this valley.

What to see in San Pellegrino Terme

A town famous throughout the world for its mineral water of the same name and for its thermal baths that enjoy thermal water that gushes out naturally at 26 degrees. San Pellegrino Terme underwent considerable development in the early 1900s, as evidenced by a number of buildings dating back to the Belle Époque in Art Nouveau style, such as the Casino, which can be visited during the summer, the Grand Hotel and the Spa. The Tempio dei Caduti (Temple of the Fallen), a monument dating back to 1924 and now housing the remains of those who fell during the two world wars, is also interesting. 

What to see in San Giovanni Bianco

San Giovanni Bianco is a small town in Val Brembana that owes its name to the town's patron saint and to the presence of numerous outcrops and quarries of light-coloured limestone. The town has a medieval layout and its numerous Romanesque bridges are still passable. In recent years, considerable investments have also been made in the development of the via Priula, built during the 16th century to give Venice, then ruler of the area, a commercial outlet to the north without having to pass through the territories of the Duchy of Milan, then under Spanish rule, with consequent duties amounting to as much as half the value of the cargo. 

San Giovanni Bianco is set in a valuable naturalistic context in the middle of the Brembana valley and lying in a basin with imposing peaks, it offers excellent views and numerous possibilities for excursions to the surrounding mountains. 

With the closure of the railway in 1966, it experienced periods of depopulation and closure to the outside world. Today, the presence of the Val Brembana cycle route is giving new impetus to tourism, becoming itself a destination for cycle tourism.

What to see in Cornello dei Tasso

Cornello is a village of medieval origin that owes its name to the ancient Tasso family, whose most famous member is undoubtedly Torquato Tasso. The Tasso family already had a company of 'post masters' in the mid-12th century and came to manage the mail service of the Habsburg Empire during the 16th century. In the Middle Ages, the village of Cornello was an important centre for trade and the passage of people and goods thanks to the presence of the via Mercatorum, the merchants' road, which connected Bergamo to Valtellina and linked some of the most important centres in the Brembana Valley.
When, in 1592, the construction of the Priula Road began, commissioned by the Venetian government to directly connect Bergamo to Valtellina without passing through Spanish territories, Cornello dei Tasso found itself isolated and lost its commercial importance, giving way to a period of decline. The new road, in fact, passed along the valley floor, separating the village from the new road system. The isolation of the village, however, favoured the preservation of its original urban structure, which, except for some alterations in the second half of the 20th century, still appears in its medieval appearance, a requisite that has allowed Cornello to be included among "The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy".
