This itinerary, which sets off and makes its way back to Bagno di Romagna is undoubtedly one of the more challenging for amateur cyclists, who will have the chance to test their skills along a stretch of rare beauty. Through the towns of Santa Sofia and Badia Prataglia, while also passing through Passo dei Mandrioli, Passo della Calla and Passo del Carnaio, the itinerary makes it way across picturesque mountain ridges rich in history and culture, home to shrines, old mule tracks and ancient fossil remains.
A difference in altitude of more than 3,100 metres, immersed in some of the most pristine nature offered by the Casentino Forest Park.
A distance of more than 140 kilometres for pure climbers, along some of the legendary Marco Pantani’s favourite roads.
SOME TOWNS ALONG THIS ROUTE (BAGNO DI ROMAGNA, ACQUAPARTITA, PASSO DELLA CALLA, SANTA SOFIA) ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO BE PART OF THE 2017 11TH GIRO D\’ITALIA STAGE, WHICH WILL SET OFF FROM FLORENCE (PONTE A EMA) AND TRAVEL TO BAGNO DI ROMAGNA.
We are located in Emilia Romagna, region bordered by Veneto and the beautiful cities of Venice and Padua to the North, and by Tuscany, Umbria and Marche to the South, offering charming cities such as Florence, Perugia, Assisi and Urbino.
We are characterised by a concentration of adrenaline, traditions and typical cuisine, captured in the most beautiful tours that touch sites on the Adriatic coast such as Cesenatico, the land of Pantani, and reach all the way to Ferrara and Ravenna, cities of art and history, passing through rugged ascents such as those of Cippo and Carpegna, or the Cimone in Modena.
