Florence - Rome

The scent of the green heart.

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.

Itinerary

Tour briefing and distribution of the rental bikes. We recommend that you visit Florence’s beautiful centre  recommended.

Hotel (example):

C-Hotels Florence

In the morning, you will take the train to Arezzo. There, you can visit the beautiful churches and palaces of the city of antiquities and gold. With your bike you will cycle on beautiful trails through the vast plains of the Val di Chiana, constantly accompanied by hill and mountain silhouettes of the southern Tuscany. You will pass Cortona and you will finally get to Lake Trasimeno, the battlefield of Hannibal against the Romans. Moreover, you will have a gorgeous view of Lake Trasimeno. Tonight, you will spend the night in Passignano.

Hotel (example):

Hotel La Vela

You will cycle along the lake to Torricella. From there you will continue through open fields, rolling hills and idyllic places to Perugia. Stroll through one of the nicest shopping streets of Italy to the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, the Palazzo dei Priori, or the Arco Etrusco... the Umbrian capital will fascinate you!

Hotel (example):

Sangallo Palace

After having crossed the river Tiber, it is only a few kilometres by bike to the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi. However, before you cycle up to the mystical city, you will take a trip to one of the most beautiful sanctuaries of Umbria: S. M. degli Angeli! In Assisi, you can immerse yourself in the colourful world of medieval frescoes by Giotto.

Hotel (example):

Grand Hotel dei Congressi Assisi

Your way leads you along the foot of the mighty Mount Subasio to the still entirely preserved medieval town Spello. Afterwards, you will continue through the Valle Umbra to Spoleto. Cities, such as Montefalco, Trevi, and Campello can be seen on the surrounding hills. From the more than 80 m high aqueduct you can enjoy a vertiginous view of the Tessino Canyon, Mount Luco, and the Rocca Albornoz (papal fortress).

Hotel (example):

Hotel Charleston

Between mountains, accompanied by the beautiful countryside, you will cycle to Terni and further to Narni.  Do you want to treat yourself? Terni is known for its excellent pastries and for having the most creative cuisine of the region! Narni and its medieval streets will take you back to ancient times.

Hotel (example):

Hotel dei Priori

In the middle of the green heart of Umbria, you will pass huge mountains until you reach Calvi, the last major town in this region. You can still enjoy the quiet and solitude of the Sabine mountains before you take the train to immerse yourself in the vibrant city of Rome.

Hotel (example):

Hotel Villafranca

Tour character

You will cycle on a slightly hilly route during the whole tour; in between there are longer flat sections. You will find yourself almost exclusively on asphalt tracks and quiet side streets, partly also bad road conditions. Only very short sections are on busier roads, especially when entering or leaving cities.

Beautiful and historic exciting
Toscana and Umbria has a beautiful countryside. To visit this district, at a time when nature is the most beautiful, with all fresh green, flowers and blossoms, hearing the birds singing and feeling the wonderful smell of nature is fantastic. In addition to this there are many interesting, old and historic towns and villages situated high up on hills, like fairy tales. The possibility to also visit Florence and Rome makes this tour outstanding.
