  • Day 1

    Welcome to Emilia-Romagna in Castelvetro di Modena

    Highlights: Charming medieval Castelvetro

    Once arrived in Castelvetro di Modena, enjoy exploring this rare example of well-preserved medieval village, characterized by its towers overlooking the small town.

  • Day 2

    Loop ride to Castelnuovo Rangone

    Highlights: Fortresses, Balsamic vinegar museum, Lambrusco vineyards

    Riding along a rail-to-trails path, we'll get to the Vignola and Rangone fortresses. The original purpose of these buildings was to defend the towns against the enemies from Bologna, but with time they were transformed in palaces for local noble families. Today the Rangone fortress hosts the Balsamic Vinegar Museum, a small institution that showcases local specialties. Our bike ride takes us through hills famous for the production of wine grapes such as Lambrusco Grasparossa and Trebbiano (whose must is used to produce balsamic vinegar), as well as Vignola's delicious cherries. We head back to Castelvetro in the afternoon. Distance: 30 km (19 miles)
