Lived tradition in the heart of Italy

Umbria can actually be termed as the heart of Italy. Sitting in the centre of the “boot” this region maintains its Italian traditions as it has done for hundreds of years! You will surely have the opportunity to see a traditional celebration. Around the castles and palaces and along the cycle paths tradition lives on and is cherished. Not only in the small villages but also in Umbria’s ‘star’ towns like Spoleto, Perugia and Assisi there is a very special attitude towards life that prevails.

Umbria - based in one hotel

7 Days | Self-guided tour
The new cycle tour in the Eurobike programme takes you to Umbria, almost directly in the middle of the famous boot. This seven-day cycle tour is intended for tourists who want to experience the quiet, idyllic face of Italy. Every stage of the tour leads through lush olive groves, or past beautiful expanses of water such as the Tiber River or Lake Trasimeno. Of course, you will also pass through typically Italian medieval towns, with the well-known names of Assisi, Todi or Bettona. You will return ‘home’ every night – to the four-star Residenza d’Epoca alla Posta dei Donini. Details of the cycle tour in Umbria What awaits you over this 260 kilometre cycle tour across Umbria will surprise you! The schedule begins and ends in San Martino in Campo and will take you to the most enchanting landscapes of Umbria. In south Tuscany, juicy grapes grow just as much as olives and sunflowers. Don’t forget your camera.

Table with a picnic

Umbria - a small region with lots of taste

Top-quality Umbrian sheep’s cheese is still mainly made by hand in the little farms and is a real specialty. Enjoy it with a glass of Grechetto from Assisi, whilst your eyes light up watching the colourful sunset. The substantial lentil-based dinners will satisfy your hunger whilst on your highly varied cycle holiday. Some black truffle refines this delicacy and turns something normal into something special.
