If you haven't stopped for a coffee yet, Chianni is the right place before climbing again to reach Rivalto where from the belvedere the view sweeps from Volterra to the hills of the Terre di Pisa, to Monte Serra ... a few more kilometers, a little up and down and Casciana Terme is there again to welcome you.
