Bike path of the eight castles

This 30 km route is truly enchanting, not only because you pass many ancient castles, but you cycle on small roads in the midst of vineyards, wheat fields, old farmhouses and olive groves. Tuscany at its best, with cypresses planted in exactly the right places, often hundreds of years ago.

This route is not difficult, but there are some dirt roads (wide paths where even a car could pass, so not dangerous or difficult). This route is ideal for e-MTB, unless you are well trained.

It is not difficult to ride an e-MTB, but there are some steeper sections. However, the roads and paths are in good condition.

Ideal for MTB or e-MTB, not suitable for a touring bike let alone a racing bike!

You can stop in San Pancrazio for a coffee break or something to eat. There is also a delicious “grocery” just after San Pancrazio in Santa Cristina. You can fill your water bottle at Poppiano Castle, you will find a fountain in front of the church.
