An unmissable destination for anyone looking to ride the permanent route of the Eroica, Gaiole in Chianti is at the heart of the Eroica movement.
In 1997, this village was the starting point for the historic first edition of the cycling event devised by Giancarlo Brocci to celebrate the values of cycling of the past.
From here, you can follow the same route taken by the 92 riders who set off on the first ever edition of the Eroica, in search of excitement and emotions, exploring incomparable villages, castles, towers and churches.
For people who enjoy a slower pace of live, there are creative workshops run by local artisans and farmers set against a backdrop of the famous Chianti Classico landscape, full of vineyards and olive groves. And, of course, not forgetting a glass of Sangiovese wine!
