Motorbike Tourism through the hills in Valdera

You can spend extraordinary days of touring following the state highway Sarzanese that runs through the Valdera from Massa Marittima to Pontedera . From the beautiful old town of Massa Marittima you take the state highway 439 , called “Sarzanese” towards the North to Monterotondo Marittimo.

In Monterotondo Marittimo there is the very charming Park Biancane in which the force of nature shows itself in the form of steam emissions from the ground, fumaroles and geothermal wells. Again on the Sarzanese, you can reach the medieval town of Castelnuovo Val di Cecina where you must walk in the old town centre and pass the Chiassino the alley which, with its 50 cm. width, is the narrowest street in the world.

Just beyond Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, on the right there is the town of Larderello where you can really get surprised watching the giant geysers . Back on the main road 439, we go up towards Pomarance where you can enjoy beautiful views over the Cecina Valley. A bit forward the town of Saline manages to offer some beautiful views of the nearby Volterra .

With gentle bends and ups and downs, the Sarzanese leads us first to Capannoli, then to Ponsacco and eventually in Pontedera.
