This route starts from the center of the small village of Iano. There you will enter in Via Costia. The first stretch of about 700 meters is of gravel road and inside the woods, then starts a nice descent. Here you will admire the beautiful scenery of the Tuscan hills that opens in front of you (on the left is even possible to see the hill overlooking the village of Volterra) and on the right you will see the "badlands" typical landslides characteristics of clay soils.

Then you will come to a house in "La Costia." Continue on the road leaving the house on the right until you come to a junction where you turn left. At this point, the route alternates short ascents and descents, as you travel along the ridges of the hills, on a clay ground in Winter can be quite difficult because of the mud, while in Summer it is very dusty.........
