Who said the sea is only synonymous with flatlands? A little further up from the Tuscan coast, a range of climbs opens up to be conquered with your bicycle, in this case the Cipollaio and the Vestito Pass. Are you ready to take up the challenge?


It takes only 20 kilometres of flatlands to reach the Cipollaio challenge: a climb with constant gradients covering 13 kilometres. Along the itinerary you will also tackle 10%-12% stretches from Arni town onwards. On sunny days your eyes will be greeted with unexpected imagery and amazing views. In fact, monotony plays no part in Tuscany.
