Back on the bikes, you reach the gorgeous hilltown of San Gimignano, a splendorous medieval atmosphere enwrapped by its 13th-Century wall, also known as "la città delle torri" (the city of towers).
"A masterpiece of creative human genius, it is unique testimony to a past civilization, and as an exceptional exemplar of both architectonic complex and landscape, demonstrates significant passages in human history." It is for such qualities that San Gimignano earned its place on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1990.

There is so much to see and do in Siena, so we chose this as your 'free' day, where you can visit Siena on your own. Start from Piazza del Campo, or - as the Italian simply call it - "Il Campo", where the famous Palio horse-race is held. The town is a trophy of Medieval Art, the most prolific period of Siena. The square has the shape of an amphitheater, looking at the Palazzo Publico, a masterpiece of Civil Gothic architecture.
The square is on a gentle slope, climbing gently towards the Fonte Gaia, by Jacopo Della Quercia. Above the building, you’ll see the Mangia Tower, an antagonist of the nearby Cathedral.
The Civic Centre is only a few steps away from the religious part of Siena, where you can admire the gothic lines that merge with the Medieval architecture of the Duomo dell’Assunta, one of the most beautiful buildings of this period.
Around the Cathedral there are several important buildings: the Palazzo Arcivescovile, the Spedale di Santa Maria della Scala (now the National Archaeological Museum), the Palazzo del Governatore, the Opera Metropolitana Museum, and the 14th century Palazzo Piccolomini, also known as Palazzo Delle Papesse. And between a church and a historic building, you will be able to do some wonderful shopping.

You leave Siena heading south towards the Crete Senesi, famous for its stunning moonscape.

Having obtained recognition as a UNESCO
World Heritage Site in 1996, today it continues to show off to the world its refined and sophisticated Renaissance urban plan. Its spaces and perspective into its 15th-Century "piazze and palazzo" are organized according to the era’s ideals of rationality and humanism.

Back on the bike, you ride the scenic roads of the Maremma Toscana, - land of the "butteri" (the typical local cowboy) and brigands - where each town and village boast origins lost in the mists of time, and then we reach the Terme di Saturnia (Saturnia Spa), where you spend a big part of the day immersed in the hot spring waters. On the way back to Orvieto we challenge again the scenic and surprising roads in the heart of Italy! Dinner is at your leisure. Overnight is in Orvieto.

It may be your last riding day, back to Rome, but certainly not an unforgettable day as you ride along some of the best roads of Umbria and Lazio.
