🔎 Overview

This cycle tour takes you through a truly magical place: the Val d’Orcia in Tuscany. 🚲 🇮🇹 ❣️

Ever seen pictures from Tuscany? They were certainly taken here: olive groves, long stretches of vineyards and endless tree-lined avenues where you can ride for hours.
Also, the famous wine Brunello di Montalcino is produced in this territory. 🍷

The route starts and ends in San Quirico d’Orcia, a small village in the province of Siena that dates back to Etruscan times.

Throughout the countryside there are several highlights to visit, including the Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta, surrounded by golden fields of wheat. 🌾

There are many cycling routes , this one, created by @Francesco Caltran, is a circular route particularly suitable for gravel lovers. 🤩✌️
