MONTE SENARIO-FIESOLE-FLORENCE
17 MI ONLY FLAT AND DOWNHILL ROADS
One-way itinerary. When in Florence participants are released from the bikes

This is mostly a downhill and flat itinerary, leading from the Convent of Montesenario (on top of the mountain, 2680 ft a.s.l.) to the city centre of Florence, through the stunning countryside of Fiesole. Florence Cathedral and its towering Dome are at the centre of the journey and our final destination.

First we’ll encounter the century-old fir trees that guard an ancient hermitage and the wide slopes of Mugello with the Apennines in the background; then the olive trees, the cypresses and the unique rural landscape of the hills of Fiesole. Finally the Arno river, which takes us into the heart of the city, where eventually we can see at first hand what we had been admiring from afar. A unique emotion and an unforgettable synthesis of Tuscany’s treasures.
