The first part of the route comprises a steep rise to Liano. Cycling on secondary tracks among vineyards we’ll reach Varignana, where we’ll visit its beautiful Parish.
From this point we’ll be able to choose: either keep on riding through the countryside towards the characteristic ravines of the Sillaro Valley, or ride back towards Castel San Pietro through low frequented roads in the countryside.
Upon request we can stop for a refreshment in one of the bars, trattoria or wine bars that can be easily found in the area.
