Munch super-twisty scenic mountain roads through fascinating historic settings.
You need to get used to local traffic habits and ride on the right. We are avoiding major highways. No technical riding, no dirt, but a few potholes in places. There are a couple of fairly long days in the saddle, up to 6.5hrs on one day.
Overall: approx' 1700km
Shortest day: 160km;
Longest day: 405km.
2 days travelling,

The route is just fine for passengers. But it can be bumpy in places.
