Self-guided cycling Tour Umbria, Tuscany, and Marche on a road bike

This cycle tour is perfect for those looking to personally experience the unique and unspoiled region of Umbria with its beauty and hospitality. Umbria, nestling between Tuscany, Marche, and Lazio, is maybe one of the smallest regions of Italy, but is has a wide range of different landscapes: from harsh gorges to sweet green hills, wild woods to fertile plains transformed by varied cultivations; oases of fresh, crystal clear spring water and enchanting lakes. This cycle tour combines the beauty of nature with sightseeing in quiet little medieval towns.

The trip starts and finishes in the surroundings of the beautiful and fascinating town of Assisi, the pilgrims’ town built against the slopes of Mount Subasio. However, Assisi is not the only highlight of this tour. You’ll pass many other interesting small towns such as Spello, which has Roman origins, as several features including the Porta Venere and Porta Consolare town gates remind us. Montefalco, is famous for its delicious wines, and Bevagna, which has a lovely medieval square with two Romanesque churches. The lovely towns, the biker-friendly roads, and the green hills with cypresses, vineyards, and olive trees make this tour unforgettable.
