Are you thinking of a weekend in Tuscany? Among the most popular areas to travel by motorbike, there is one to try at least once in a lifetime, namely the one that leads through the roads of Chianti. One of the most representative areas of Tuscany, which through the path we will see today, twists on the hills of the Gallo Nero.
It's time to feel the rhythm and smile under your helmet as the chills rise up your spine.
This itinerary, with its harmonious tortuosity, excellent asphalt and views alternating with suggestive and protective woods, will not lack adrenaline and emotions, as well as the possibility of satisfying the palate with typical products.
Are you ready to immerse yourself in this adventure? Here's everything you need to know!
The itinerary that we are now going to discover is about 100 km long and offers interesting ideas inside. In addition to the beautiful landscapes full of vineyards, there is the most interesting note for us motorcyclists: in fact, here are some of the most beautiful roads in Tuscany, above all the legendary SR222 Chiantigiana.
Our route starts from Greve in Chianti in the beautiful Piazza G.Matteotti. From here you immediately go up, for one of the most beautiful stretches, to the Passo del Sugame (529mt) and go down to the small village of Dudda, immediately after which you turn right to go up again to the Castle of Albola, where the woods opens by regulating the gentle hills completely covered with vineyards up to Villa.
Here, after an intersection and a roundabout, follow the signs for Gaiole in Chianti which we reach by turning right towards Badia a Coldibuono.
Shortly after Gaiole we reach the Meleto Castle which we recommend you visit just to be able to taste the many wines that they keep in their wine shop and to take a souvenir photo on the giant bench placed in its garden.
At this point we continue through a dense forest up to Monteluco where we turn right to go down to the characteristic village of San Gusmè.
Immediately after the village you will see on the left the Cipressaia di San Gusmè, a typical Tuscan cypress avenue. Our itinerary proceeds keeping to the right passing through Villa a Sesta and up to the Castle of Brolio (also worth a visit), as well as the starting point of the Eroica, a possible detour which we will mention later).
From here we proceed along a road full of curves to the intersection with the SP408 where we turn right and after a few km on the SP2 we turn left to return to the Villa a Sesta roundabout.
Now we take in the direction of Radda in Chianti, and then continue on another of the most beautiful stretches up to Castellina in Chianti where I recommend a visit to the square and an ice cream at the Gelateria di Castellina.
The latter is also the symbolic place of Chianti, where you will find a wonderful panorama, but above all the monument that depicts the famous Gallo nero. It is the symbol that distinguishes the wines produced only in this particular area, and also recalls an ancient legend thanks to which a bloody war was resolved between the Republic of Florence and that of Siena, to establish the boundaries of the Chianti territory.
Now all you have to do is save the itinerary, fasten your helmet well and leave to live this unforgettable experience!
Here ends our itinerary of about 100 km, which we recommend to experience in two days, so that you can alternate some of the beautiful visits to the Castles with the motorcycle route, or longer stops at the villages you will encounter along the way.
Since taste also has its part, during this tour we definitely recommend trying some typical products, such as cold cuts, cheeses or meat, accompanied by a nice glass of Chianti, which you will easily find in the numerous gastronomic shops in each village.
