PAVIA AND ITS VINEYARDS - one day tour

Pavia / This medium distance daily tour is one of the most complete and inviting for this amazing area between Pavia, Piacenza and the Oltrepo hills. An agricultural and touristic district, famous for italian traditional sparkling wine and food. 

With the right flatland and hills mix, it's perfect for cycle tourism. Crossing the wine valleys, riding its ridges this is a wonderful route for a special day on your road racing bike.

The starting point by bike, is the town of Pavia that we’ll reach by train from Milan.

Before starting our ride, we’ll have a short bike tour inside Pavia, with its University tradition, the Duomo, the San Michele Basilica and Piazza della Vittoria for coffee or “cappucino” before start to ride.

After the short citytour we head towards the Belgioioso Castle, founded by Galeazzo II Visconti in the second half of the fourteenth century. 

We’ll cross the Po river at the Spessa bridge, riding for about 30 kilometers of flatland before tackling sweet climbs of Tidone Valley, in the Piacenza area. From here it starts an amazing up and down on ridges and valleys, between vineyards and country landscape. The maximum reached share is about 600m above the sea level, when we’ll arrive to the Carmine ridge.

After about 92 kilometers and about 900 meters of climbing slope, we’ll arrive in Voghera, to catch our back train to Milan.
