From Seravezza, the route takes riders on five slightly downhill kilometers to Pietrasanta, one of the most famous towns in the area. Pietrasanta celebrates its history in marble works with a mix of modern and classic sculptures placed throughout its store-lined pedestrian only lanes dedicated to the rich art and history of the town. Just as in Seravezza, there is a short, 11km loop that goes up the adjacent hillside, so riders have the opportunity to stay and bask in the sun at a bar or cafe in Pietrasanta’s main square, or head up into the hills for a stunning view of the Versilia at the edge of Ligurian Sea and its rocky coastline just up the road. On sunny days, the southern edge of the Cinque Terre is clearly visible behind the towns on the plains of Versilia just below. The descent on the southeast side (the loop is meant to be done clockwise) is narrow and traffic from vehicles caring for and harvesting the olive groves is infrequent but not uncommon, so for those unsure of their descending skills, it’s best to head down the same wide road you climbed from Pietrasanta.
From here, the route takes riders back to Camaiore where the numerous cafes await riders with a well-deserved lunch or even aperitivo where they can reflect on the incredible variety of sights in Versilia from the beaches, quaint towns, mountain peaks, and stunning views.
