The Tuscan section of the path is particularly beautiful, varied and interesting: from the Cisa Pass it gets across the Lunigiana on a comfortable asphalt road on the right of river Magra. In Aulla a challenging hill has to be negotiated to get into regione Liguria and reach Sarzana, then get back into Tuscany in the Marina di Carrara area. From here you ride along the beautiful seaside bike path and, after a well-deserved swim, you leave the seaside and get to Pietrasanta, Camaiore and Lucca. From there, you basically follow the walking path until Altopascio, then leave it to ride on secondary roads touching San Miniato and Gambassi Terme then, after a long climb, you ride down into San Gimignano.
After this, you enter Val d’Elsa along a wonderful scenic path descending to Poggibonsi, where you ride along the bike path built on the old railway to Colle val d’Elsa. You then join the walking path again and follow it with few detours until Siena and from there to Buonconvento and San Quirico d’Orcia. From Bagno Vignoni you reach Radicofani along the nice paved road following one of the Via Francigena old branches, passing the Ospitaletto castle before you get to the Ghino di Tacco stronghold. From here you will join the old Cassia road again and follow it until Ponte a Rigo.
