The “L’Ardita” permanent cycle route


L’Ardita all year round. The “L’Ardita” permanent cycle route was created for all cycling fans but especially for those who enjoy old-style cycling. The route is well marked with signs that indicate the route step by step, making it great for beginners as well as experienced cyclists who want to explore the city of Arezzo and its surrounding valleys.

Step by step, as a lone rider, in tandem or together with the whole family, this route allows you to explore the wonders of Arezzo’s art and history from the Piazza Grande square to Vasari’s imposing aqueduct. The route also follows the waterways of the “Ponte Buriano” and Penna Nature Reserve with its rich biodiversity. Take a break at this spot to admire the “Ponte della Gioconda” bridge. This bridge is depicted in Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpiece and it looks like an ancient giant sinking its feet into the waters of the Arno River. Its mighty arches have managed to withstand the force and fire of thousands of battles over time. The next part of the route takes you to the Valdarno area where you’ll see Romanesque churches and medieval villages like Subbiano and Capolona in Casentino through the village of Castiglion Fibocchi, Casa Vecchia and Pieve San Giovanni. The final part of the route is the hardest: you’ll be surrounded by nature in the Alpe di Poti area as you experience the thrill of the grueling time trial. Once you reach the top, the remaining route is all downhill to Piazza Grande.

A route to experience and share all year round.
