All year mountain activities in Mount Amiata
Although Mount Amiata is a dormant volcano, the territory still conserves a great amount of energy in its interior which gives a strong identity to the region and its inhabitants.
The 80th World Road Cycling Championships will be held in Tuscany from September 22 to 29, 2013.
Tuscany's greatest cycling champs like Gino Bartali, Fiorenzo Magni, Gastone Nencini, Roberto Poggiali, Franco Ballerini, Mario Cipollini, Andrea Tafi, Francesco Casagrande, Michele Bartoli and Paolo Bettini raced and trained on Tuscan itineraries that are part of the history of Italian cycling, but these routes are also representative of the beauty, uniqueness, culture and history of the Tuscan region. Those who decide to visit Tuscany have a wealth of options to choose from: an itinerary from the World Road Championships, a trekking tour through the country, a mountain bike tour in the hills, and even a motor cycle tour along the region's winding country roads. Cycling addicts as well as lovers of slow travel will be able to visit and experience several stretches of the 2013 world championship routes.
