Itinerary

Itinerary 1VOLTERRA – POMARANCE – LARDERELLO – MONTEROTONDO – CANNETO - CASTAGNETO C.CCI

There is something magical along this itinerary that tells many Toscane: a triumph of landscapes with breathtaking views, hidden villages that tell stories of ancient times, enchanted woods and paths suspended between sky and sea. It starts from Volterra, and crosses Montecerboli and Larderello, in the heart of geothermal Tuscany. The ancient and intact landscape of the Val di Cecina suddenly becomes futuristic in the Metalliferous Hills where the warm energy of the land is intubated in metal pipelines that run, jump and overhang the road; here and there boraciferous blowpipes whiten the sky of Larderello and the Valle del Diavolo. The route passes from Sassetta, a microcosm linked to the events of the wood, home to charcoal burners and woodcutters.
Level : Hard ***
Distance : 96 Km

Itinerary 2CASTAGNETO C.CCI - MONTEVERDI - CANNETO - SASSA - BIBBONA - BOLGHERI

Today’s route leads to the discovery of the small and charming village of Monteverdi Marittimo and Canneto, with its ancient defensive structure still surrounded by walls today. The wild and untouched nature of the area, close to the rugged south-western slope of the Metalliferous Hills, make it a particularly suitable destination for lovers of trekking and cycle tourism. Continue to Borgo La Sassa and here a 5,5 Km ascent with a 5% average incline is waiting for you. Most of the climb is flanked by woods. A stop for lunch and admire the view of the Val di Cecina and discover the small village.
End the tour at Bolgheri: return immortal from the verses of Giosuè Carducci in the poetry Davanti in San Guido, this ancient village born around a medieval castle which is accessed after walking a long tree-lined avenue, releases a lingering charm in memory. Stop in a cellar with a visit and tasting of the wines of Bolgheri, before returning to the hotel.

A journey that leads from the coast to delightful villages like Sassetta and Suvereto, one of the best roads in Italy to travel by bike; the ascents towards Sassetta and Campiglia Marittima, on the other hand, are the most demanding. Suvereto, which is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, awaits you with its narrow alleys, the brick houses tell the story of a country whose origins date back to before the year one thousand. Set on a hill overlooking the sea and the surrounding countryside, you will find Campiglia Marittima. In this ancient medieval castle, rich in history and traditions, the streets, paved alleys and palaces, arranged in concentric semicircles, give a sense of great harmony.
