Umbria based in one hotel 7-days

Italy's most breath-taking landscapes!

This new cycle tour takes you to Umbria, almost directly in the middle of the famous 'boot' of Italy. This seven-day cycle tour is intended for tourists who want to experience the quiet, idyllic face of Italy. Every stage of the tour leads through lush olive groves, or past beautiful expanses of water such as the Tiber River or Lake Trasimeno. Of course, you will also pass through typically Italian medieval towns, with the well-known names of Assisi, Todi or Bettona. 

What awaits you over this 260km cycle tour across Umbria will surprise you! The schedule begins and ends in San Martino in Campo and will take you to the most enchanting landscapes of Umbria. In south Tuscany, juicy grapes grow just as much as olives and sunflowers. Don’t forget your camera.

Highlights of the tour:

  • Taste Umbria’s top wines: On the fourth day you can enjoy a wine tasking with a typical Umbrian lunch (included) at the well-known Chiorri vineyard.
  • Travelling by train: The two train journeys from Montefalco and Todi bring even more variety into cycling holidays!

Important information:

The starting point of the day trips in Umbria is the picturesque San Martino in Campo near Perugia. During the following days of your cycle tour, you will cover between 40 and 60km every day, which are easy to master with good basic fitness. A good level of fitness is useful on the climbs to Trasimeno Lake and Todi. Otherwise, the route through the unique landscape of Umbria is usually flat and on low-traffic side roads.

If you don’t know Umbria yet, why not get to know it on a cycling holiday!

On the stages to Lake Trasimeno and to Todi there are several longer ascents. All of the other day rides are predominantly flat or only have very small ascents. You cycle on wonderful, quiet side roads. Occasionally you cycle on good quality tracks. You only have to cycle on slightly busier roads on short connecting sections.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in San Martino in Campo

    Collection of travel documents and rental bikes by one of the hotel's employees. The day is yours to explore your new home for the next 7 days. In the evening you enjoy a welcome drink on the sun terrace.

  • Day 2

    Assisi approx. 50km

    The river Tiber is not far. Cycle along the river valley past the shimmering sunflowers and wheat fields. From afar you will then see the dome of Santa Maria degli Angeli, which is a pilgrimage church. It is well worth taking a break here especially if you haven't already. There is a short ascent up to Assisi after the church. The town of Saint Francis lies impressively on the edge of Mount Subasio. Finally, you cycle back down into the Tiber valley back to your luxury accommodation.

  • Day 3

    Todi approx. 50km + transfer

    The typical, Umbrian landscape accompanies you today on your bike tour to Todi. Between the olive groves you keep on getting magnificent views across the Tiber valley. In the spring, the gorse shines vibrant yellow and in summer it is the sunflowers that greet you. In the distance you can see where you are headed for, Todi. Admire the medieval Piazza del Popolo whilst drinking a creamy cappuccino. In the evening you take the train back to San Martino in Campo.

  • Day 4

    The wine of Umbria approx. 40km

    Some might say that Umbria comes across in a cliche way in today's stage. You cycle through golden wheat fields that are only interrupted by lush green vineyards and silver shimmering olive groves. The route gently undulates as you head from village to village. At the well-known Chiorri vineyard there is a wine tasting session waiting for you. But not just fine wine, you will also enjoy a traditional lunch on the terrace with a beautiful view all around you. Afterwards you have only got to cycle a few kilometres to return to your hotel.

  • Day 5

    Montefalco approx. 40km + transfer

    There are three cultural highlights making for an entertaining cycle today. Bettona perches majestically like a swallow's nest on a small hill and has a medieval flair with its narrow roads. You also immerse yourself into Bevagna and its ancient history. To top the day you will visit Montefalco, which is a medieval town surrounded by a wall and that has breathtaking views at the ready for you across the valley. All of these amazing towns that you cycle through today meant that we almost forgot to mention that today's cycle route itself is magnificent. In the evening you return to the hotel by bus transfer.

  • Day 6

    Lake Trasimeno approx. 60km

    Today you pedal through olive groves and small Umbrian villages until you get to Lake Trasimeno. It will glisten in front of your eyes and will entice you in for a swim. Enjoy the extensive views of the surrounding area once again with the shining sunflower fields and the lush green vineyards. Take a break in one of the traditional Trattorias that you pass on your way and enjoy the Italian hospitality whilst drinking a good glass of Umbrian Grechetto.

  • Day 7
