Assisi to Foligno 26 km
You leave your hotel and cycling along the slopes of Mount Subasio you reach Spello. There's enough time to wander about this charming old town. Spello is an extremely interesting place, containing many features dating back to Roman and medieval times. After your visit you descend to Foligno, situated in the valley. You pass along the main square with it's beautiful 'Duomo', which still has a Romanesque facade. Passing along the lively shopping street you will leave the town to cycle the last kms to reach your Country House along the Clitunno river.
Day 3
Foligno to Bovara or San Lorenzo 51 km or 44 km
This morning a short tour brings you to Spoleto. From afar you can already see its castle dominating the hilltop on which the medieval part of the town is built. The center is still largely inside the medieval town walls. Spoleto offers a lot to see, like the 'Duomo' with its famous frescoes by the Florentine Filippo Lippi, the Roman house and the Roman Theatre with an annexed archaeological museum. Your overnight stay will be again in Bovara or San Lorenzo.
Day 4
Cycling to Bevagna 28 km
Biking through a slightly undulating landscape you will already see Montefalco from a distance. At the foot of this town you have the option to continue along the valley directly to Bevagna or to visit Montefalco… but to reach this lovely town you first have to conquer a steep climb. Montefalco is also known as the ‘balcony of Umbria ’, because of the fantastic panorama. The Franciscan church, now a museum, is decorated with magnificent 15th and 16th century frescoes by artists such as Benozzo Gozzoli and Perugino. Montefalco is well-known for its excellent wines, Rosso di Montefalco and Sagrantino, produced on the sunny slopes around the town, and of course it is almost impossible to leave the town without tasting them in one of the many wine bars. From Montefalco you go downhill to Bevagna. If you don't visit Montefalco you cycle through a slight hilly landscape directly to Bevagna. This town has a lovely medieval square with a fountain and two Romanesque churches. The square is a real meeting place for the friendly inhabitants of the town. You can choose to stay in a hotel in the center of the town or in a hotel with a swimming pool just outside the old center of Bevagna (900m)
Day 5
Bevagna to Torgiano 30 km
In the morning you have still time to visit Bevagna. Leaving it you continue cycling mostly through the valley to Torgiano, a small ‘borgo’ at the confluence of the rivers Chiascio and Tiber (Tevere), famous for its excellent wines. Your hotel is in the quiet town center.
Day 6
Torgiano to Perugia 24 km or 32 km
A short cycle tour will bring you to the station of Ponte S.Giovanni situated at the foot of Perugia. From here a local train will take you into the historical centre of Perugia, which is situated on higher ground. The centre, with its little alleys and characteristic town squares, is bubbling over with life. The aristocratic Renaissance palaces, medieval churches, museums and many galleries will make a lasting impression. After your visit you return by train and bike back to your hotel in Torgiano. Youi can also choose to cycle all the way up to Perugia.
  • A tour in the surroundings of Torgiano 45 km or 33 km
Close to Torgiano is the village Deruta, which has, in part, managed to retain the highly distinctive features of its medieval buildings. Deruta is universally famous for its ceramics. The origins of this ancient art go back as far as the Etruscan times and nowadays the many local workshops still make excellent quality ceramics. The next stop is the sanctuary of Madonna dei Bagni, which has built after a miracle taking place in the year 1657. Inside the church there are more then 600 votive tiles, all testimony to the tradition of the ceramics of Deruta. You cycle back to Torgiano through the Tiber valley. Torgiano is famous for its gorgeous red and white wines and when you have a moment of time you could visit the interesting wine museum and go to the Lungarotti family's 'osteria' next door, where you can taste their wines.
Day 7
Back to Assisi 25 km
Today you will cross the valley cycling over quiet country roads. You will already see Assisi from afar as, like many other Umbrian towns, it is built on a hilltop. Before reaching Assisi, however, you can stop for a moment to visit the Franciscan basilica in S.Maria degli Angeli. Under its impressive dome still lies the humble little chapel 'Porziuncola' where Saint Francis once came to pray. To arrive in the beautiful historical center of Assisi you have to make a short but steep climb, but wandering through the town you will agree that it was worth effort. (An option could be to take the city bus from the train station in the valley and return here after your visit of Assisi to pick up the bikes again). You will have enough time to visit the main monuments of the town, like the basilica of St. Francis with its beautiful frescoes by the painters Giotto, Simone Martini, Cimabue and Pietro Lorenzetti. Your overnight stay will be in the hotel, where you started.
