Florence - Rome

8 Days | Self-guided tour
Discover with us a new side of Italy: quiet, sometimes almost mystical! On this tour you will see cities like Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto, or Narni, which have incredible art treasures and carry its visitors back into the Middle Ages. The overall appearance of the cities has hardly changed and the landscapes are harmonious and inviting. On generally lonely roads, the tour takes you through the valleys of the Apennines, over the softly curved hills of Lake Trasimeno, and through the solitude of small Umbrian villages. Raging rivers, fascinating gorges, and the flocks of sheep roaming through the countryside shape this part of Italy. Going by bike is one of the best ways to explore this area. You can smell the sweet odors, rest in a tavern, and fortify yourself for the next stages. We cannot guarantee it, but the probability is high that Italy will welcome you with sunny weather. At the end of your trip, the “Eternal City” of Rome will welcome you. There, you can put your bike aside and enjoy the liveliness of the city and its people while drinking a cup of cappuccino or a glass of red wine.  If you want to leave the stress of a hectic world completely behind you, then you will love this trip and keep lots of great memories of it.
