Using secondary roads with little traffic, our guides will take you to the characteristic hills of Tuscany that surround Montecatini Terme and Valdinievole.
The first village we will reach is Buggiano Castello. A medieval gem, which, despite the very few residents, lives from history and tourism. Well-known, thanks to its microclimate, as the village of citrus fruits, it conceals magnificent private gardens between its walls that are open to the public only every two years. The second village is just a short distance away. Colle di Buggiano, thanks to its bars and restaurants, remains a rest station for travellers, a function acquired during the Middle Ages, when the Order of Malta founded a dormitory, a hospital and then a church that recalls its presence to this day with an enormous cross in front of the entrance.
Leaving the second village, our tour continues inside the wood. Cycling the magnificent trails that climb up the hill, we reach Cozzile.
A beautifully preserved village, with the particular structure of fortified castle, made of narrow streets, small houses attached to each other and the central square with the well.
Located at a higher altitude than the other villages, looking out from Porta Nuova, we will enjoy an amazing view of Valdinievole. From there on, it is downhill. We will cycle the spectacular Roman road to Massa, the principle and oldest fortified centre of the area of considerable historical-artistic heritage.
Once we have travelled its squares and narrow streets, we will continue the descent that will take us to the end of the tour.
The characteristic of this itinerary is the great historical-artistic value, but also the magnificent wood trails we will cycle by bike (Gravel, Mountain Bike or pedal-assisted).
