Cycle paths in Umbria
In this region we cycle like Italians – on low traffic side roads! But this shouldn’t diminish our enjoyment of cycling. Low traffic in Umbria really means low traffic! Nothing is in the way of an unforgettable cycling holiday!
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!
Luisa Spagnoli was a successful Umbrian business woman, not only known for her eponymous fashion label, but was also the founder of the chocolate factory Perugina. The most famous product of this company is a declaration of love by Luisa Spagnoli to her beloved. On Valentine’s Day 1922, she developed the Italian delicacy called Baci – a filling of hazelnut cream wrapped in dark chocolate. A creation that still delights us today! Luisa Spagnoli is considered one of the strongest female role models in the history of industrialised Italy!
