Is the Apennines by motorcycle a paradise? Find out what kind of corners Tuscany has to offer!

A little tired of the crowded cities of sunny Tuscany, we decided to look for good corners and spend a little more kilometers in the saddle. Tuscany is located in the Northern Apennines, so we decided to find a nice motorcycle route here. A quick look at Google map and a smile appears on our face. The length of the route is 80 kilometers, the expected time of travel is 3 hours. Not thinking much, we packed up and set off on the road. Is the Apennines by motorcycle a paradise? For us it certainly turned out to be such a paradise, check it out for yourselves.

The Apennines by motorcycle – Route with a view of Massa Carrara quarry

Soon after leaving Montecatini-Therme the road leads us sharply upwards. Fortunately, the traffic is small, despite the relatively good surface with sometimes occurring clusters of gravel, the route is difficult. Mainly because of the angle of ascent (12-18%) and the negligible width of the road – maximum 2-3 meters. Excellent corners, which would not shame the best alpine passes, sometimes make the heart beat faster because the vertices of them are not flat, but the road still rises or falls down. Have you heard that the Passo Dello Stelvio is a difficult route? Compared to the Apennines, the Alps is a piece of cake.

The Apennines by motorcycle – Between olive groves and vineyards to the Devil’s Stone

Next, we headed towards Avaglio, and the last 7 km before the village, it was continuous turn, the longest stretch of the straight was maybe 200 meters. We stopped for a moment to take a break from the almost 40 degrees heat and, with a cold non-alcoholic beer, admire the view of Tuscany. Going further in the direction of Piteglio we passed the Devil’s Stone – Sasso del Diavolo. The route was beautiful, winding among olive orchards and vineyards and although the views may not have been so spectacular, it had something magical in it. The width of the road is still negligible, nature and ubiquitous corners – we were in the motorcycle heaven.

Tuscan corners – motorcycle heaven

It is worth stopping by the road behind Piteglio in the direction of Pesccio, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Apennines. The road is very good, sometimes there are cavities, but the fun of such a route makes you completely not to worry about them. We really recommend these places, because although they require maximum concentration during the ride and quite good control over the motorcycle, a smile for the whole 3 hours does not disappear from our faces. It was our second meeting with the Apennines, you can read about the first one here, and with a pure heart, we can say that the Apennines by motorcycle is a motorcyclist’s paradise, a real paradise.

Wygl膮da to r贸wnie偶 na raj samochodowy, je艣li kto艣 lubi poszale膰 na zakr臋tach. Toskania i jej okolice wygl膮da przepi臋knie! Czekam na bilety w dobrej cenie 馃槈

No powiem CI szczerze, 偶e ze wzgl臋du na szeroko艣膰 niekt贸rych odcink贸w, to nie wiem czy zdecydowa艂bym si臋 je藕dzi膰 tam samochodem 馃檪

Motocyklem wygodnie si臋 je藕dzi po g贸rach 馃檪 I ciekawiej ni偶 samochodem, pi臋knie tam 馃檪 Extra zdj臋cia 馃槈

Dzi臋kujemy 馃檪 Jak kto艣 raz spr贸buje jazdy na dw贸ch k贸艂kach, to do samochodu wraca tylko wtedy gdy musi 馃檪

Pi臋knie i zach臋caj膮co 馃檪 osobi艣cie bardzo lubi臋 takie klimaty. Tak w艂a艣nie powinny wygl膮da膰 podr贸偶e w moim rozumieniu: pasja i ch臋膰 zobaczenia jak najwi臋cej. PS. bardzo 艂adne zdj臋cia!

Dzi臋kujemy Beatko. :*

Ch臋tnie wybra艂abym si臋 na tak膮 wycieczk臋 motocyklem, to by艂oby prze偶ycie. 馃檪

Polecamy – niezapomniane prze偶ycia. 馃檪

Kocham W艂ochy, kocham Toskani臋! Ale zwiedzanie jej na motocyklu, z wiatrem we w艂osach, to ju偶 zupe艂nie inna bajka, inny smak… Zawsze imponowa艂y mi takie podr贸偶e w pe艂nym tego s艂owa znaczeniu, kiedy czu膰 trudno艣膰 pokonywania trasy, zm臋czenie ale te偶 prawdziw膮 natur臋, nie zza szyby samochodu czy poci膮gu… 馃檪 Takie podr贸偶owanie to zupe艂nie inna historia, zupe艂nie inne wra偶enia i adrenalina! Pozdrawiam!

Hih, z wiatrem we w艂osach to ci臋偶ko. :))) Kask jest obowi膮zkowym ubiorem. 馃檪 Ale fakt, z takiej perspektywy zupe艂nie inaczej si臋 wszystko odczuwa. I nic tak pi臋knie nie pachnie jak las po deszczu albo po burzy, kiedy jest si臋 przemoczonym do suchej nitki. 馃檪

Ale tam pi臋knie! 馃檪

Toskania jest ca艂a pi臋kna. 馃檪

艢wietne zdj臋cia. Szczeg贸lnie to z widokami na g贸ry 馃檪

Dzi臋kujemy. 馃檪

Pi臋kne widoki i zakr臋cona trasa 馃檪 przyznam jednak, 偶e na motorze bym si臋 nie odwa偶y艂a. Gratuluj臋 !!

Dzi臋kujemy bardzo. A jazda na motocyklu nie taka straszna jak si臋 wydaje. :)))

Pi臋kne widoki, jednak ja raczej nie jestem do motocyklu stworzona, jednak偶e m贸j marzy o takiej wycieczce. 馃檪

Je藕dzimy r贸wnie偶 w grupie. 馃檪 Je艣li chce si臋 do nas do艂膮czy膰 – nie ma problem贸w. 馃檪

Przepiekna trasa, takie widoki, nic tylko urz膮dzic sobie rajd.

Trasa 艣wietna i ma艂o znana! Polecamy. 馃檪

艢wietna przygoda, tylko pozazdro艣ci膰.

Dzi臋kujemy. 馃檪

Pi臋kne widoki. Niestety jako kierowca nie czuje si臋 za dobrze na takich trasach. Za du偶o zakr臋t贸w 馃槈

Szkoda, bo wra偶enia zawsze niezapomniane. 馃檪

Bardzo ciekawy wpis! 馃檪

Ja to bym si臋 ch臋tnie pow艂贸czy艂a po g贸rach

Niestety pod tym wzgl臋dem si臋 nie dobrali艣my z moim lubym – ja zawsze po g贸rach, a on woli posiedzie膰 i popatrze膰. 馃榾

Nigdy nie je藕dzi艂am na motocyklu, zawsze jednak marzy艂 mi si臋 wyjazd camperem. Mo偶e kiedy艣…

Zawsze warto d膮偶y膰 do realizacji swoich marze艅. 馃檪 Trzymamy za Ciebie kciuki, Dorotko. 馃檪

Wy we W艂oszech, a my w Wietnamie bardzo cz臋sto robimy sobie motocyklowe woja偶e. W g贸rach jest zawsze niezwykle, te zakr臋ty, wira偶e i drogi nie ucz臋szczane, czasami jest nawet do艣膰 ekstremalnie. To fantastyczny czas za ka偶dym razem i niezwyk艂a przygoda 馃檪

Zazdraszczamy! 馃檪 Jak tylko b臋dziemy planowali tripa w tamte rejony zg艂osimy si臋 do Was po cenne rady 馃檪
