The route starts in Castiglione del Lago and is 34 kilometers long with 350 meters of elevation gain.
It has no major hills, but is not completely flat. It can be tackled by anyone with a minimum of training and is suitable to be ridden on a road bike, gravel, e-bike or touring bike.

The first part climbs very gently to Casamaggiore. Then a valley section begins that leads to Gioiella, Vaiano and Villastrada, following the Strada del Vino dei Colli del Trasimeno.

This section, entirely traffic-free, is also one of the most evocative, with beautiful views of Lago Trasimeno, Lago di Chiusi and the Tuscan countryside.

The roads we propose are almost all with low vehicular traffic, with the exception of the two kilometres of SS71 just before returning to Castiglione del Lago, but the road can be avoided by using the bicycle path that runs alongside the road.
