We present you with a short, but testing, itinerary involving one of the most famous Apennine passes. For more than 300 years the Raticosa Pass has connected Florence and Bologna and up until the construction of the Autostrada del Sole, it was the main road connection between the two cities.  Nowadays, above all, it is motorcyclists and cyclists who know it well and come to take on its various slopes.
