Description

The wonderful Umbrian Valle Umbra is a great starting point for exploring the beauties of Umbria. This green fertile valley, full of small rivers and canals and surrounded by green mountains and hills covered with olive groves and vineyards is an excellent place to have a relaxing cycling holiday. The valley is famous for its medieval towns and villages because here we find them all: Assisi, Bevagna, Montefalco, Spello, and Spoleto.

 

ITINERARY

Day 1: Individual arrival in Assisi
Assisi is a medieval town built on the slopes of Mount Subasio, overlooking the Valle Umbra. It is a place in which history, traditions and art are harmonious combined. If you arrive early, you can discover this beautiful city wandering through its alleys, streets and stop at one of the cosy squares, where cafés are inviting you to sit down and enjoy an ice cream, cappuccino or a good glass of local wine. The **** hotel is set in a rural location, is situated at 7 km from Assisi. From the pool, you have a stunning view of Assisi. The ** country house is situated at 800m from the old town centre. There is also a nice pool with stunning view of the Valle Umbra.

Day 2: Assisi – Spello – Assisi 37 Km
After breakfast in the saddle for your first bike ride. Discover the green Umbrian Valley cycling along quiet country roads to reach Spello, fiercely situated on the slopes of Mount Subasio. The city has preserved its medieval charm very well: you will go through alleys and cheerful squares with flowering balconies.  There is a lot to see. After your visit you cycle back to Assisi through the valley among cultivated fields planted with cereals, sunflowers, grape and fruit trees.

Day 3: Assisi – Torgiano 34 km
This morning you cycle first to Santa Maria degli Angeli, where you can visit the basilica. The impressive dome covers the Porziuncola, where St.Francis and his friends lived. If you did not visit Assisi yet you can leave here your bikes and take the bus up to Assisi, which is built on a hilltop. After your visit, you take the bus back down into the valley to pick up your bikes. Cycling along quiet country roads, you will get to Torgiano, once a fortified village. There are some remains of its glorious past: the Baglioni Tower and remains of the ancient city walls.  Torgiano is situated in a fertile wine area at the confluence of the river Tiber with Chiascio.  The museums of Wine and Olive Oil are worth a visit.

Day 4: Torgiano – Bevagna 27 Km
Also today, the typical Umbrian countryside will be your “travel companion”. You will reach Bevagna, one rare example of historic centre built on the plain and not on a hilltop.  Bevagna boasts both a Roman past and a medieval aspect. Piazza Silvestri is a very interesting square, a cheerful meeting place for the inhabitants, with its gothic Palazzo dei Consoli and two Romanesque churches. Other sites to visit are the Roman mosaics and a medieval house. The ***  or **** hotel is situated in the historic centre or just outside with swimming pool.

Day 5: Bevagna – Foligno – Casco dell’Acqua 27 Km
This day is dedicated to Foligno, a welcoming city on the plain just like Bevagna, situated along river Topino. It is worth visiting the Duomo and its late Gothic Palazzo Trinci which hosts the Pinacoteca and the archaeological museum; you can do shopping in Corso Cavour or stop at Piazza della Repubblica for a cappuccino or a delicious ice cream.  From Foligno you continue cycling among cultivated fields and canals. The country house, a beautiful eco guesthouse, is situated along the Clitunno River.

Day 6: Casco dell’Acqua – Spoleto 25 Km
On your last day, you will reach Spoleto: you will recognize it from a distance, because of its fortress dominating the city from above. You will get into the city on the bike path. At Porta Garibaldi, you can leave your bikes and discover Spoleto on foot.
The historic centre and its Duomo, the Ponte delle Torri (Tower Bridge), the fortress, the Roman house and the amphitheater are situated in the upper part of the city. After your visit of this lovely old town centre, you will cycle to your hotel. There is not much to pedal anymore. The hotel with pool is in a quiet position just outside town. On request, it is possible to book for a cooking class ‘Making Pizza’.
