The Cuvignone Pass is one of the famous climbs by Lake Maggiore, and often features in exciting stages of the Giro d’Italia. Leaving Ranco, we follow the lake for 25 km (15.5 miles) until we get to Laveno, where we turn right and head towards Cittiglio on a road with a gentle, gradual climb. Once we get to Cittiglio we turn left and from here the road climbs for 10 km (6.2 miles) to the top of Cuvignone with the gradient varying between 10 and 14 %. Lake Maggiore’s very own Mortirolo overlooking the waters below with awe-inspiring panoramic views.
