The Umbrian climate
Umbria is one of the coldest regions in Italy! From November to March there is a cool climate similar to Austria. That’s why our cycle tours start in April and end in October! In the spring and summer months, however, you will find a lot of sunshine and warm temperatures! What are you waiting for? Onwards to Umbria!
We say it all the time, but what can we do? Also in Umbria you can eat like a king! Italians have good food in their blood, they cook it with love and create divine dishes! Take particular note of the truffle and pork in Umbrian cuisine! The animals here have a wonderful life, are fed exclusively with chestnuts and acorns and are highly sought after across Italy for their fantastic quality. The rustic kitchen is enhanced by ‘luxury items’ such as porcini mushrooms and truffles. Cinhiale all’agrodolce (wild boar in sweet and sour sauce), Lombette soll’olio (the Umbrian answer to carpaccio), Pollo ala cacciatora (hunter’s chicken) or Trota tartufata (trout sprinkled with black truffle)…you fill surely find your new favourite dish!
