  • Day by Day

    Wednesday 23 September 2020
    Meeting at our resort with Olympic swimming pool and spa, located a few kilometers from the sea and the Populonia archaeological park.

    Thursday 24 September 2020

    117km 1600 m ascent
    On our first day, we warm our legs without splitting the muscles: the path will be ondulated. We will go up to Monteverdi Marittimo and Monterotondo Marittimo, along isolated roads without traffic. No plain, but climbs are easy and exciting. During the final stage, a flat part brings us back to our resort: let's go faster here!

    Friday 25 September2020

    115 km 1860 m ascent
    This will be an incredibly intense day: early in the morning, we will take a boat from Piombino to Cavo. Here, we will start discovering the island following its perimeter, 4 intense but spectacular climbs overlooking the sea. Strength, resistance, work. Lunch break by the sea and whoever wants to can regain energy by diving into the splendid water. We will go back by ferry in the evening.

    Saturday 26 September2020

    110 km 1033 m ascent
    We will head north following the coast to Marina di Castagneto Carducci, and then cross the town of Castagneto where poet Giosuè lived in his childhood. Let's get into the real Tuscany, with the double rows of cypresses that mark our road. Ascent to Monteverdi Marittimo, and then fast descent on Canneto. Short but intense climb that leads to Sassetta, and descent again. Our last stretch of the day leads to Campiglia Marittima, we just have to relax and enjoy the last flat kilometers that lead to our resort.


    Sunday 27 September

    125 km 1200 m ascent
    We will ride southwards, in the province of Grosseto, approaching the heart of the Tuscan Maremma. Even today a succession of isolated roads with continuous ups and downs. The climb of the day will be the Tirli, a testing ground for many professionals, who come here to train in winter season.
    We will return safely to the resort to dive into the pool and toast the most intense 5 days of emotions you will ever have experienced.
