STAGE 7 – 2020
Castelnuovo Berardenga / San Quirico d’Orcia
Medium demanding stage. On this part of the route you will admire panoramic beauties that the whole world comes to visit, like: the “Crete Senesi” similar to a lunar landscape, the rich vineyards that produce the Chianti grapes and the “white roads” of the Eroica, that accompany us to Pienza, a town built during the Middle Ages. Then you will ride, in the direction of San Quirico Orcia end of the stage, along a ridge that gives you a great view composed by Mount Amiata and Radicofani pass.
An advice that I want give you is: “Bike into the streets of these villages (UNESCO heritage sites) to breathe their atmosphere, here no noise is muffled by the traffic noiese and the rolling of the wheels of your bikes will resonate much stronger; here everything is simple but at the same time austere”.
