Before Eentering Tuscany near Ameglia, the Moncenisio variant of the Ciclovia Francigena (iclovia dei Pellegrini) passes through Liguria from Piemonte. This is an excellent route on quiet roads which reaches the coast near Chiavari and then heads, more or less along the coast, towards the Cinque Terre and La Spezia.

The Grand Tour della Val di Merse

 

   


 

The Grand Tour della Val di Merse covers a vast area, passing through the heart of the Montagnola Senese before arriving at the southern foothills of the Elsa and Cecina valleys, then rolling southwards to the Ombrone valley which briefly touches the Maremma Gros- setana, before going back up to skirt the northern part of the Crete, the magnificent gateway to Siena, a typically hilly territory characterised by a surprising variety of natural environments.
