Umbria Self-guided Cycling Tour in the green heart of Italy

In the magical landscape and the gently rolling hills of Umbria you will find many convents, monasteries, abbeys and churches. You can feel the authenticity of this region when you wander through the streets of the medieval hamlets and villages left untouched. Umbria is a spectacle of nature and a land of many colours and perfumes, and everywhere streams, rivers and waterfalls accompany the visitors on their search for peace and beauty

  • Day 1

    Assisi

    Individual arrival in the medieval town, birthplace of St. Francis.

  • Day 2

    Assisi–Spoleto 50km

    This is the most exciting stage of the tour with many possible stops. The first one is Spello, a walled town with a large number of Roman ruins. You’ll reach then Foligno, famous for its two wonderful town squares. The stage ends in Spoleto, a well preserved medieval village.

  • Day 3

    Spoleto–Todi 60km

    Today you’ll cycle among oaks and olive trees as far as Todi, one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Italy, perched on a hill and overlooking the Tiber valley

  • Day 4

    Todi–Orvieto 45km

    You cycle through small villages in the middle of the nature. On the last kilometres the white tuff cliff town of Orvieto will emerge from the rolling hills. The Gothic façade of the cathedral of Orvieto is just one of the many unique monuments covering millenniums of history.

  • Day 5

    Orvieto – Città della Pieve 45km

    Today the stage is quite demanding: you’ll cycle through rolling hills, but you’ll be highly rewarded by reaching your destination: Città della Pieve, a medieval village still surrounded by 14th-century city walls.

  • Day 6

    Città della Pieve – Perugia 60km by bike + 20km by train

    You’ll reach the beautiful Trasimeno Lake and pedal along its northern shores till you get to Magione and its castle. From here take a train to Perugia, a splendid old town surrounded by Etruscan city walls.

  • Day 7

    Perugia – Assisi 35 km

    You’ll cross the Tiber plain and reach Santa Maria degli Angeli at the foot of Assisi: here many places are linked to the everyday life of Saint Francis of Assisi. The town will astonish you with its art, monuments and the 13th century Basilica.

  • Day 8

    Assisi

    Departure after breakfast

    Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Along the way you may find temporary deviations (for example road works) which cannot be foreseen: in this case each rider can decide autonomously how to deal with these stretches.
