Raticosa Pass, Tuscany

The Raticosa pass is stunning and a must if you are visiting Tuscany, e.g. for Mugello GP.

It is a minor road full of switchbacks through the Appenines between Bologna and Firenze . At the weekend it is full if mad Italian bikers treating it like a racetrack, and there is a cafe at the top with fab views. Quite a long ride but well worth it. The surface is mainly very good.

what is the road number ?

You take the SP65 south out of Bologna. It seems to merge into SR65 later on. It winds up in the general vicinity of Mugello.


been there , done that !
mix it in with the old road , and you will be glad of the stop half way down , you will get bored of hard slow cornering …but worth it !
