Wine & bike tour in Umbria, Italy’s green heart!


Discover Umbria, Italy’s green heart, situated between Rome and Florence, on a wine & bike tour. Umbria is a neighbor of Tuscany and offers the same beautiful scenery, interesting small towns and excellent wines. In Umbria, you can still meet the “real” Italy, with its relaxing pace of life, authentic culinary traditions and friendly people. As in many of the other Italian wine producing regions the wine producers in Umbria has created a network called “strade del vino” or “wine routes”. Biking is an excellent way to discover the wine routes with their beautiful fields, hills, vineyards, wineries and warm population.
We cycle on minor roads, where they exist on bike paths, to hear the silence, the sounds of the nature and enjoy all the Umbrian scents!

Program proposal for minimum 8 persons:

The bike tour starts in Assisi where St. Francis was born. The town is an important place for the spiritual Italy but also for its art, history and medieval atmosphere. The first night we stay in Assisi and from there we cycle through the olive groves to Spello, an ancient Roman colony where you can can see the remains of the Roman Empire and with a myriad of picturesque narrow streets and alleys.

Along a flat road we proceed to Bevagna, another small treasure chest that has remainings of a Roman amphitheater, Roman mosaics, medieval stalls with typical local crafts and nice small restaurants. A visit here is a must!
During the day, we eat a nice picnic lunch with local products and stop at a winery in the afternoon for wine tasting.

We stay overnight in Bevagna and do a guided tour of the medieval stalls before we start todays cycling on the gentle hills with their vineyards that lead us to Montefalco, the homeland of the red wine Sagrantino and other noble wines. Stop for lunch and wine tasting at a winery!
This day can end with a little extra luxury in a very charming hotel. It has a small spa in the medieval cellar with a steamroom, emotional shower and swimming pool in a tank from the 13th century with salt water.

Last bike day we enjoy the silence, the hills, vineyards, wineries and the bike path that leads to Spoleto where there is much to discover: The park with the springs of Clitunno, Clitunno’s ancient temples, a mixture of colours and flavours, fields and farms, the perfect round off on an unforgettable tour.
At lunch stop at a winery for tasting of wine and local products and the last night we stay in a nice hotel in Spoleto.
