Description:
This is a spectacular ride from the beautiful and untouristy mideval town of Montichiello. Much of the ride is very flat, but the ride up to La Foce is somewhat challenging. Great scenary. Be sure to read Iris Origo's War in the Val d'Orcia, a diary recounting the author's travails in providing shelter to children and other dispossessed during WWII. Mrs. Origo lived at La Foce.

It's impossible to give directions as to how to get through it, but it's a small town. Just keep going downhill and you'll come to the main thorofare.
