Self guided bike Trip Umbria on Road bike, E bike or Trekking 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.
Assisi isn’t the only highlight of this tour. You will pass many other interesting small towns such as Spello, which has Roman origins,

Two nights you will spend in Torgiano allowing time to visit the county-town of Perugia. Its magnificent old town centre is certainly worth visiting, with renaissance palaces, medieval churches, museums and galleries,

During the second part of the tour you bike through a beautiful unspoiled scenery. The biker-friendly roads, the lovely towns and the green hills with cypresses, vineyards and olive trees make this tour unforgettable.

The Franciscan church, now a museum, is decorated with magnificent frescoes from the 15th and 16th century by artists like Benozzo Gozzoli and Perugino. The next town you will visit is Bevagna, whose characteristic medieval square still hosts two Romanesque churches. Your overnight stay is in Torgiano, which in medieval times was a fortified village and is situated on a hilltop above the confluence of the rivers Chiascio and Tiber .
