This itinerary is really more “difficult” than “average”, because it involves 6 ascents, of which 2 are long and hard and 4 are shorter. However, it takes you to some beautiful places, and notably to Predappio, where you can see examples of Rationalist architecture commissioned by Mussolini in his place of birth. At Castrocaro and Terra del Sole, you can visit charming historic centres with 15th-century fortresses built by the Medici, as well as a spa bath complex in the Liberty style. At the top of Monte Trebbio, there’s a statue of a cyclist with a plaque dedicated to Marco Pantani, for this was one of his favourite ascents. You will pass through Predappio Alta, home to the Cà de Sanzves (Casa del Sangiovese), a typical bar and temple to wine with an interesting old cellar. The ascent/descent of Rocca delle Caminate with its 18 bends is a delightful route between lines of cypresses, leading to the 15th-century fortress.
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.
