Overview

Technical description of the route:

The tour starts at Bike Village – Agnano. After a few km on ordinary roads, you leave the traffic to immerse yourself in the tranquility of the “Padule”: a marshy area around Lake Massaciuccoli. Around the lake, a dirt road allows you to pedal in total relaxation towards the Chiarone Reserve, an area protected by the LIPU where you can admire the unique ornithological fauna of this area with the splendid setting of the Apuan Alps on the horizon.

Once you reach the lake it will be possible to walk on the elevated paths and, thanks to special observation stations, to admire the pristine habitat without disturbing the animals.

Once the walk is finished, we leave again towards San Giuliano Terme and Agnano, but not before having visited the archaeological area with the Villa and its thermal complex, located in a panoramic position from which you can admire the lake and the coast up to the sea. .

Throughout the tour an expert guide will be available to guide and assist the group by illustrating the nature and history of these incredible places.

E-BIKES OR ASSISTED BIKES:

With these bicycles, even those who are not very trained can afford to tackle paths otherwise reserved for expert cyclists. The electric motor, powered by a battery, supports you in pedaling, relieving fatigue.

However, a minimum physical condition is required to make the most of the excursion.
