We will follow a long downhill alongside the enchanting spa town of Bagno Vignoni, a very small village whose ancient stone buildings cluster around a pool of warm thermal waters. Then we go up to Castiglione d'Orcia and rest in the central square with panoramic view.
Back in the saddle and soon you will enjoy 9 km downhill to the monastery of Sant'Antimo Abbey.
