A sense of freedom

Madonna del Sasso, Santa Brigida, the hills of Chianti Rufina

THE HILLS OF CHIANTI RUFINA AND THE MONASTERY OF MADONNA DEL SASSO

By bike a beautiful synthesis of the magnificent Tuscany landscape, the heart of “Chianti Rufina”, a winemaking area well known since the Renaissance. This itinerary develops on the foothills of Mt. Giovi, the peak which towers over the Mugello area and the valley of Arno, 15-20 km north-east of Florence. A route winding among chestnut forests, hop hornbeams, Turkey oaks and the wild hills which make up the Local Protected National Reserve, with the suggestive sanctuary Madonna del Sasso as its symbolic centre.
Below 500 m the vegetation gently leaves space to vineyards, olive groves and cypresses. Here the bike trail crosses a rural territory dotted with towers, ancient manor houses, 16th century villas and romanesque parishes.
At the middle of the bike trip we’ll do a brief stop at a local traditional Tuscan farm (Fattoria di Montereggi) to taste and eat Tuscan bread and excellent local extra virgin olive oil.
