Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
Those starting from the junction of Bagni di Casciana (about 130 m asl) to Chianni (270 m asl) must face a series of ups and downs for 7.5 km amid the smooth and colorful Pisan hills. The beautiful road shaded by cypress trees and flanked by olive groves and vineyards that make up the main wealth of this area, is winding, not very busy, and pleasant to ride.
Just after a curve shortly before the last km, the village of Chianni suddenly appears, dominated by the shape of the church of S. Donato which in the Middle Ages took the place of a previous castle.
The climb is never really hard - unless you decide to go through Rivalto (335 m asl), a small panoramic hamlet on a hill overlooking Chianni - and can be completed in about half an hour by a racing bike.
