Bike tour Montalcino
Day bike ride Val d’Orcia
Come to ride through brunello wineyards departing with a long downhill from the beautiful Pienza.
Challenging level: 30 miles (one way) or 43 miles (total loop)– rolling terrain with some challenging climbs.
Meet at delightful town of Pienza, then head west past ancient vineyards, stone farmhouses and bright green pastures. We follow a long downhill stretch to the enchanting spa town of Bagno Vignoni, a minuscule village whose ancient stone buildings cluster around a pool of warm thermal waters. Soon we start uphill and reach Castiglione d’Orcia, then push on to the monastery of Sant’Antimo, where you might catch one of several vesper services performed each day by the monks. The reward for our efforts is Montalcino, before the day is over we’ll visit the town of Montalcino, ending up at the Fortress for one long last look at the beautiful countryside.
Back to Pienza by van or back by bike through San Quirico d’Orcia
Option: end the bike ride in a winery and have Wine Tour
