The Italian Job – day 5

Guiglia to Pistoia

A nice scenic undulating route through the hills, a number of small villages and woodlands. There route has a number of hills but the scenery and lack of significant urban areas makes up for that and further along the route there are a number of dramatic views with a number of long gradual climbs and sweeping descents.  (Description based on route notes from Peak Tours).

Route from Guiglia to Pistoia (67 miles):
