In the quiet of the mountains: between history and spirituality.

This itinerary is certainly challenging because of the uphill difference, but equally rewarding for the panoramic views and for the sense of absolute tranquility that is felt in many of its stretches. The roads are largely free of car traffic, with bottom suitable for road bikes or gravel. Passable all year, but recommended especially in spring-summer and autumn.

What to bring

Helmet, preferably technical clothing. Water 1 liter, kway or rain cape, snacks, dried fruit.


Please refer to the websites and to the classic tourist guides for information on the sites of historical, cultural and naturalistic interest that are found along the route.
