Eat up this morning before today we swing through the curves and bends rolling through the Wild side of Tuscany.  We have a full day of bends and curves, knees to the ground as we take our motori to San Galgano . Motori e Sapori want you to put all your riding skills of this holiday to Tuscany into action.

 

The Abbey of San Galgano, one of the most evocative places in the itineraries of Tuscan spirituality . The construction of the abbey began in 1218 for the Cistercian monks, who with their network of monasteries revolutionized the medieval spirituality by sanctioning the passage from monasticism of hermits to a religious life more anchored to the economic needs of the territories.

 

The place includes two points of attraction; the great roofless  Abbey , the hermitage of Monte Siepi where, according to legend, San Galgano retired to live his life as a  hermit  in 1170. As a symbol of peace, he infixed his sword into the rock, where it still stands today. Can you pull it out ?

 

Sapori and Motori challenge you !

Back into the saddles of our motori/Motorbikes  as we head through Tuscany for more sapori / flavors of Tuscany on the wild side as we will ride to Massa Marittima. 

 

Set on a high and isolated hill, the beautiful old town of Massa Marittima stands in a well-preserved city wall, representing one of the most important urban-architectural complexes in Tuscany. The narrow streets that cross the hill lead to a magical place, giving you the the chance  to take in the beauty of this   surprising and timeless place.

 

We will walk through the square of Massa Marittima,  with the beautiful cathedral of San Cerbone and  the main buildings of life in an ancient city.  Here you can decide what and where you want to taste the sapori / flavours of this medieval city.

 

After lunch it is back onboard our motori / motorbikes to rev our engines towards   Castelnuovo Val di Cecina.  Time to explore and stretch our legs and have a coffee or snack.

 

Time to leave the wild side and ride back to Florence to say goodbye and leave our motori . All on board a for wheeler back to Vicopisano.

Rest up a bit before an aperitivo in the piazza. Tonight we have our dinner of arrivederci and ciao with more typical sapori of Tuscany . We will say our farewells to our new friends from motori e sapori.
