Description:

Umbria has been praised for its pure beauty since Roman times, because of its greenness, many lakes, rivers, refreshing springs, mountain streams and waterfalls. This not-too-strenuous cycle tour since it take place mainly in the valley with only a few rolling parts will bring you to lively, medieval villages and towns of the green valley 'Valle Umbra', such as Assisi, Spello, Foligno, Spoleto, Bevagna and Perugia. Thanks to the reduced daily distances you will have enough time to visit these towns.
The tour starts and finishes close to Assisi, which rises on a mountainous branch of the Monte Subasio. This beautiful pilgrimage town with its narrow alleys, cosy squares and many medieval monuments will make an unforgettable impression.
