Day 3: Torgiano – Spello passando per Assisi 33 km
After breakfast you will bike, mostly over quiet country roads, along the valley to Assisi. To reach the old centre you will have to climb steeply, but it’s certainly worthwhile because Assisi is a lovely, really picturesque town.

After the tasting it is a short cycle to get back to the hotel in Spello.
After breakfast the bike tour is over but you can also book an extra stay in Bevagna.
