This itinerary will take you to the countryside and the pine forest around Donoratico and Marina di Castagneto Carducci.

directions_bike 11 km

Depart from Donoratico railway station square, taking the subway under the railway line to the start of the cycle path. The path goes through olive groves to a big pinewood, where you turn right onto a wide dirt road, Viale dei Cavalleggeri, before joining the asphalt road (opposite the Cavallino Matto amusement park). Turn left, skirting the amusement park, along the road towards the sea as far as the Via della Colonia turn off on the right (reference: a reinforced concrete bar-restaurant with a very steep roof).

At the T-junction at the end of the road (Tombolo hotel with yellow walls), turn left towards the sea and once on the seafront go right, passing Shangri-là and Tana del Pirata bathing beaches. 
Carry on along the asphalt road past the Alle Dune hotel (on the right). After a while the road turns inland through the pinewood (Via del Dentice), coming out near Lo Sperone riding stable.

At the next intersection, turn left towards the mouth of the Seggio river (1.3km), an ideal spot to watch the sunset. Turn back along Viale delle Palme as far as the Bar King where you turn right towards Il Cavallino Matto amusement park. Take Viale dei Cavalleggeri through the pinewood again and return to the departure point on the same cycle path as before.
