Excursion to discover the Tuscan countryside: from olive groves to the "Mediterranean scrub", from vineyards to cultivated fields, encountering hidden lakes and caves
The route is about 20-25 km long with a difference in height of almost 400 m. around Montescudaio, which alternates between little frequented roads, dirt roads and paths in the woods. The route shows the different "landscapes" around Montescudaio: from the centuries-old olive groves to the woods of Mediterranean scrub with cork oaks, strawberry trees and myrtle up to the vineyards of the DOC Montescudaio. There are lakes and hidden caves where you can meet some wild animals or see the footprints.
People with a normal athletic preparation for cycling, able to cope with some climbs.
