ADVENTURE TOUR OF THE WEEK

We ride to Mercatale lake, but before getting there we will first climb Carpegna and follow the roads of the 2014 Giro d’Italia and then descend from Macerata Feltria to our destination. The views here will leave you speechless and a surprise will be waiting for you! You will visit a small brewery that produces craft beer, in the heart of the historical Montefeltro area between Urbino, Carpegna and San Leo. From this panoramic view point you can see the Foglia river and above the splendid lake Mercatale you will see the beautiful village of Sassocorvaro. And to round off this wonderful experience you will enjoy a delicious lunch in the restaurant of the brewery itself!
