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.
