Starting in Saturnia, we begin our ride with a gentle climb admiring the fascinating public hot spring with its numerous pools of crystalline blue. At the crossroads, we head to the right and begin the climb gently. We take a dirt road in the countryside pedaling for about 20km between hills and woods of Mediterranean scrub between ancient oaks and holm oaks. At this point, we continue towards Manciano. The town stands on a hill overlooking the whole lower Maremma. A gentle descent takes us to visit Montemerano, one of themost beautiful villages in Italy, a few more pedals to the spa to complete this 40km tour between the wonderful Tuscan hills.

Part of the municipality of Manciano, it stands on a travertine plateau at 294 masl in the hinterland of the Maremma Grossetana. The main resource is thermal tourism.

The main thermal waterfalls are the Cascate del Mulino, located near an old mill.
The pretty village of Montemerano is located on a hill between Saturnia and Manciano. Surrounded by the Maremman countryside and protected by three walls, it has kept intact its medieval look with a splendid church, fortress, paved streets and the characteristic castle square surrounded by stone buildings.
This small town overlooks a large part of the Maremman countryside, perched on a hill, peering down on the medieval villages around it, trails in nature for every type of excursion, spaces for relaxation and interesting museums.
