Leaving Palazzo di Varignana we’ll start pedaling towards Casalecchio dei Conti, passing through  Liano and Castel San Pietro Terme, where we’ll stop coming back, and reaching Dozza, famous for its “Painted walls” where every house is an piece of artwork. Inside Dozza’s “La Rocca”, seat of the “’Enoteca Regionale dell’Emilia Romagna”, (Regional Wineshop of Emilia Romagna).
Leaving the hills behind us we’ll ride North reaching the meadows and after just a few kilometres we’ll arrive in Castel Guelfo, where the ancient walls and its 4 towers are still visible. We’ll then ride back towards Castel San Pietro T., cross the cobbled main street and ride under its tower, Torre del Cassero, stopping in Piazza XX Settembre, its main square to admire the Cathedral, Chiesa del Crocifisso.
