Special Monday “Albereto Castle and Vecciano”
Monday focuses on culture and good food!
A visit to our country house in Vecciano opens the week with a delicious promise that it is difficult to refuse.
To reach it we pass the municipal tower of Montescudo, a mediaeval 13th-century bulwark where we stop for a cup of coffee and visit to the famous ice house. After cycling for a few more kilometres we reach the small castle of Albereto, which affords special panoramic views of the ancient Republic of San Marino and the sea. A little further on we cross the nature park of the Marano torrent as far as Vecciano, where lunch awaits us at our family house. Grilled meat, typical cheeses, homemade pasta served with tomatoes from our market garden, lots of good wine and a visit to the old vinegar cellar with a tasting of balsamic vinegar reward cyclists for all their hard work.
