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 easy and passes mostly on the ridges of the hills, after which initially you have to get to the ridge. With an e-bike this is easy. The route is beautiful, mostly on smaller roads and hardly any steep sections.
