... on the way and slowing heading into towns we must have been doing 200+ kmph.
We arrived in Rome about 1940hrs and caught a cab to our Hotel which was about 1.5km away. A bit of trouble fitting the bike bag in the taxi but nothing a few occy straps couldn't fix! The Hotel seems nice, simple but neat and tidy.
Tomorrow we will hit the streets and look at some of the attractions. Being in the city centre, most of the main sites are within 30min walk.
... called Magic Mountain and it's the best roller coaster I've ever been on (My sister's first roller coaster ride!). I loved the adrenalin rush it came with!
Other cool rides : I Corsari; Ramses; 4D Adventure and a huge merry-go-round.
The one CRAPTASTICO ride - The Jungle Rapids Of LameO.
Over and Out

... of water, warm coke and banans to help get me up. The quads cramped up in the last few km's so I couldn't stand up out of the saddle and then my left hamstring cramped in the last hundred odd meters but other than that it was just a matter of willing myself to keep turning those pedals over and watching the meters tick off.
I finished 77th out of 120 starters in my category so fairly happy considering the course isn't built for a larger guy like myself.
Had a quiet day today. We went for another walk into Peschiera.. Then we went and sat in the sun by the lake. Then after lunch we went and sat by the pool...oh god it's exhausting!! Last day though, tomorrow we start the journey towards home. ...
Went out this morning to scope out climb #2, headed south towards Rovoreto which is about 15km south of Trento. The climb is over 750m in elevation from top to bottom but no really steep sections, so spun up it in an easy gear so as not to tax the legs too much before tomorrow. Passed through a little village called Castellano before hitting the descent - superfast with some 80kmph sections without even pushing it.
Had a rest during the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Leonardo Da Vinci Hotel Limone sul Garda
We stayed at L. Da Vinci for one week ending 6th Aug 2005. We had booked Standard rooms and found them very basic and without air-con. After two days the hotel handyman broke our shower and we were upgraded to a superior room - what a difference, the air-con, the view, the luxury compared to the standard. I know what we will be booking in future, if we ever go back. The food was first class, there was something to suit all tastes, and plenty of it. We always walked into the town via a small road that ran parallel to the main road, and this took about 15mins.We walked up the mountain roads behind the hotel and discovered the birth place of Daniel Comboni. If you want 'lager-louts' and late night discos then don't go to Limone, it's much too good for situations like that, but the younger members of our party still enjoyed themselves at some pubs in town. The trip to Venice was long (about 3 hrs each way) but having gone to northern Italy it would have been a pity to have missed it. You can easily pass a week in this lovely part of the world and you'll not get bored - travel and explore some days and relax on others. The free wine, tea/coffee and lemonade during the day was very welcome. The red wine was very pleasant and has a bit of a kick too.
Just came back from 10 nights at the Leonardo da Vinci - having read all the reviews I was really hoping for a great great holiday. Overall it was OK.
We are just back fom a very enjoyable week at a lovely hotel. Food was great in that you could invent a 5 course breakfast if you wanted, and a huge dinner, if you wanted. Self service, or try the waiter service in the alcove (same food, but less choice). Several pools. The main pool is the focus, but despite the hotel request that you do not reserve a pool lounger by leaving belongings on loungers, this is what you have to do, before 9:00 am. However, there is always plenty of space at the pools above, near the macaws (yes, real macaws) and I found loungers free there at 10:30 am.
Simply the best
We went to Italy and stayed at Leonardo Da Vinci Hotel in lake Garda
The hotel was very good the staff was very helpful and the food was very good we would recommend upgrading to an air condition room and the lake views, it was really worth it. We have a twelve year old and he met many friends
We would never go there in August we think it would be very busy with lots of children running around and very noisy also very hot,but out of season is lovely.
Entertainment was ok some night I found very boring,
Lake garda is one on the most beautifulness place we have been and we will be going back
We've just come back from a week at the Leonardo da Vinci. We were on a late deal, where accommodation is allocated on arrival, and I must admit I was slightly worried when we arrived, at the look of the hotel - not quite shabby looking but well in need of brightening up.
I stayed at the Leonardo Da Vinci last week with two friends. Mostly an older age group and couples with young children, but absolultely fine for our age group also (35-45). The staff were simply amazing - I have never come across anything like the efficiency and helpfulness. Nothing was too much trouble. We asked if it would be possible to change room as we were intially in quite an isolated part of the complex, and this was done without hesitation - they moved all our luggage etc. for us. The food is of a very high standard, although maybe a bit tiring for a full seven nights. But that could be said of anywhere. Private beach is great. Fantastic holiday - Limone is devine - Leonardo Da Vinci great (and cute bar staff too - but that's another story!!!!!!!!!!). Us Shirley Valentine's are going back!!!!!!!!!
Hotel Leonardo = Superb!
Staff lovely, people friendly, food excellent, weather fine, facilities very good, entertainment entertaining, room good (superior room with view and aircon, recommended), great for kids 3+ due to kids club 'Juppidu': the people who looked after my daughter were just amazing! Lovely lovely lovely! You can windsurf, play tennis, go cycling, do archery, swim, go to the opera.... we had a great time and would recommend the Leonardo without hestitation.
I stayed at the leoardo for 2 weeks in June 2003 together with my partner and 2 year old son. I returned married as we got married in Verona on the 19th June. Being quite a critical individual, I am please to be able to endorse the previous reviews and confirm that the Leonardo and indeed Limone are well worth a visit, although is perhaps not ideal for those who do not wish to be around children as it is a family orientated hotel. The grounds and facilities are excellent, the cuisine remarkably good for such a large hotel and the staff could not have been more helpful, particularly when an emergency arose involving a slide, a head and a 2 year old. The swimming pools were good and the stoney beach leading to the lake out of this world! It was ridiculously hot every day as we stayed in the middle of a heat wave. I would suggest that inb high season air conditioning is vital. In fact, the views are so superb it really is worth paying a little more for a superior room with balcony and views. I can confidently say it was the best holiday I ever had and this was not just because I got married. I bumped into numerous other British guests who likewise rated this hotel. I will return one day and would not hesitate to reconmend it to others.
Stayed here for 2 weeks in July. Hotel was very clean, the rooms were quite spacious with a Queen size bed. Balcony was a nice size with an excellent view of the lake. The staff were so friendly, always made us welcome. The food in the restaurant was excellent with a wide variety of choice every night. Entertainment was quite good with nice clean seating area. 3 pools were always clean. During our stay there was a firework display & live bands playing on the beach each weekend.
Overall a great holiday, will definately go back.
We went to the Leonardo for our honeymoon, and loved it so much we are going back again this year. The hotel is brilliantly situated next to the lake with its own beach, and the views are magnificent. The restaurant food is very good (buffet breakfast and dinner), and the formal evening dining option at no extra cost is well worth checking out. Despite being one of the largest hotels in the area, it never felt overcrowded even in high season. Booking a superior room (aircon, hairdrier and safe) definitely recommended. An excellent value for money hotel which is unpretentious but caters for your every need.
