Italy (Casciana Terme Lari)
Italy (Casciana Terme Lari)


The 50 km cycling route (elevation gain + 1110m) crosses the lavender fields around Santa Luce (flowering period: June-July) with a stay in Casciana Terme


Day 1:
Arrival in Casciana Terme, a typical Tuscan spa village, and accommodation in the hotel. You will have the opportunity to rent a bicycle (gravel), should you not have one, for the following day. Dinner and overnight stay follow.

Day 2:
After breakfast, you will set off on the 50 km route (altitude difference +1100 m) towards the lavender fields, whose flowering period is from June to July, near the small village of Santa Luce.

You will leave Casciana Terme in a southerly direction and turn immediately towards the small village of Collemontanino, which you will reach after a short, pedalable climb. In the village, you will leave the asphalt road and continue climbing for another 3 km until you reach an altitude of about 500 m. You will descend off-road, rejoining the asphalt road for a short stretch until you reach the fields of lavender in bloom and the Lipu nature reserve of Lago di Santa Luce, along whose shores you will cycle surrounded by Mediterranean scrub.

You will leave the lake behind as you ascend to the village of Pastina, from which you will have a beautiful view of the lake below and the Livorno Hills in the distance. In the direction of Pomaia, you will leave the asphalt road for a climb that will take you to the highest point (600 m) of the route in just over 5 km.
Then another 3 km downhill, where you will rejoin the asphalt road just outside the village of Chianni.

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