The Gastronomarcia is not a competitive race, but a fairly challenging walk through the Monsanto woods, vineyards and country roads (in the Barberino Tavarnelle area), with refreshment points set up along the route. From breakfast, to aperitivi and lunch taken ‘in stages’ along the route.

This is a perfect opportunity to spend a day in nature, taste some delicious dishes, and admire the suggestive landscapes of the Chianti.
