What to expect?

Discover the charm of the hills just a few kilometres from Bologna. This guided tour takes you along paved and dirt roads, far from the traffic of the main road Via Emilia, to show you the wonders of nature and art that are typical of the area between Castel San Pietro Terme and Imola.

Cycle from our starting point in Castel San Pietro towards Dozza, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, famous for the frescoes that decorate the external walls of its houses. The final stop of the tour is Imola, which you can reach after tackling several uphill stretches.

Before returning to the starting point, there’s just enough time to take a look at the racetrack and at the city fortress (Rocca Sforzesca), as well as to rest a bit.

Min. 4  - Max. 10 participants
For Groups 10+: price on request
