The catering and gastronomy of Montalcino also participates in the Eroica on August 30 with the Eroico Plate. This is the initiative proposed by the Eroica to which Confcommercio Siena joined together with the businesses in the Montalcino area and which is part of Vetrina Toscana.

From 9 to 9.30 is the departure for the shorter “Brunello” route of 46 kilometers. From 9 to 9.30 is the start of the 27 kilometer walk. There is also the permanent route of Eroica Montalcino which extends for a total of 153 km, passing through the heart of the Val d’Orcia and travelling past some of the most iconic places in Tuscany. The permanent route can be started from any municipality that the route crosses and can also be completed over several days. The route can be completed throughout the year and with any type of bike.
There are seventeen restaurants in the city that will offer the Heroic Plate which will take place on Saturday 29 August. They are all traditional Tuscan dishes, important, heroic dishes.
