Short and easy stage that leads us towards the Arno. The Tuscan hills are now the normal view, rich in woods, cultivated meadows, farmhouses and castles.
After leaving Chitignano, trying to avoid the provincial road by following the parallel streets to the left, you arrive at the Castello degli Ubertini: a recommended visit. You go down (cyclists follow the road towards Poggio d’Acona), up to an iron cross and you reach Poggio d’Acona, after passing three fords in a thick wood. The picturesque village, also once the Ubertini Castle, stretches along a buttress of the Alpe di Catenaia. Once you have filled up with water at the spring in the center of the town, you follow the road up to the Rio Talla. Crossing the stream you reach the Castello di Valenzano. Taking a country road, crossing the Rio della Torre, continue up to the Fosso Romaggio. After crossing the stream, you reach the road that descends from Vogognano. You follow a nice track in the middle of fields and woods. After a ford you meet Giuliano. (cyclists take the road that descends towards the SR Umbro Casentinese Romagnola or SS 71, up to Subbiano). Just over 1 km and you ford the Rio Lendra; at the Candepole farm you can supply yourself with water. Arriving on the road that descends from Falciano, after several crossroads, after passing a ditch, following other cart roads, you go towards Subbiano. Underpassed the SS 71 you are near the Town Hall of Subbiano. Then the fortress-castle of Subbiano, just above the Arno and in front of nearby Capolona.
