Once you’ve gone through the historical center of San Quirico d’Orcia, take the unpaved road that leads to Ripa d’Orcia and the ancient town of Vignoni. After a 2-kilometre climb, turn left for Vignoni, where you’ll start a steep descent into Bagno Vignoni, a small village that’s famous for its thermal bath facilities.
From Bagno Vignoni, continue downhill until reaching the S.S. 2 "Cassia" where you turn left (toward San Quirico). Then, at the first intersection, turn right towards Spedaletto, a town you’ll reach after 4 kilometres of smooth cycling. A little further on, turn left and follow the signs to Pienza. While on this road, cyclists can enjoy the Val d’Orcia’s typical landscape. Once you’ve finished your climb toward Pienza, make sure to stop there. A utopian Renaissance hamlet, it certainly deserves a better look. From here, our journey continues up the beautiful ridge. It’s a 9-km ride to San Quirico d’Orcia.
