San Casciano - Cetona

Km - Percorso in bici

After visiting San Casciano, the route continues with a leg of about 15 km that leads to Cetona. The road first runs along the ridge that separates Valdorcia and Valdichiana and then leads along the slopes of Mount Cetona, a real indicator along the entire route. Along the road there is the Belverde Archaeological Park where you can ask for information and take guided tours of the prehistoric settlements and caves of the Bronze Age. The presence of picnic areas within the park will make for a pleasant stop before leaving for Cetona, where you can visit the Civic Museum of Prehistory of Monte Cetona located inside the 16th Century Palazzo Comunale (Town Hall), which illustrates the main stages of the history of human population who inhabited this area. Cetona has been included in the list of the “Borghi più Belli d’Italia” (the most beautiful villages in Italy) since 2001 and it only takes a tour of its square and its streets to understand why.
