This is the ride for the tough ones who "have legs" and feel it's about time to show it!

A challenging climb on wonderful and quiet back roads in the countryside from Florence to an ancient monastery standing on a hilltop at 3280 feet.

The visit to the monastery will take you back to the middle ages. Of course the 360° view over the valley is breathtaking!
