The Italian Job – day 8

Siena to Citta Di Castello

A challenging but scenic day in the saddle with lots of ups and downs through the hilly landscape of Tuscany. This is typical Italian countryside and with some fantastic views and lovely little towns and villages and a lunchstop in Castigion Fiorentino.  (Description based on route notes from Peak Tours).

Route from Siena to Citta Di Castello (70 miles):

Elevation profile (ascent ~3900 feet):


A pleasant day cycling with similar scenery to the previous day’s Sienna loop although not quite as picturesque due to the haze.


A few videos of the route.
