Umbria - based in one hotel

Italy’s most breathtaking landscape.

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.

Hightlights of the cycle tour in Umbria:

  • On holiday, yet still at home: Cycle tour fans love the centre-based tours from Eurobike as they return to their holiday home every day. During the trip from Umbria, this is the Residenza d’Epoca alla Posta dei Donini, just outside Perugia. Tip: The hotel’s restaurant is considered one of the best in the region!
  • Taste Umbria’s top wines: On the fourth day you can enjoy a wine tasking with a typical Umbrian lunch (included) at the well-known Chiorri vineyard.
  • Travelling by train: The two train journeys from Montefalco and Todi bring even more variety into cycling holidays!

Important information about the cycle tour in Umbria:

The starting point of the day trips in Umbria is the picturesque San Martino in Campo near Perugia. During the following days of your cycle tour, you will cover between 40 and 60 kilometres every day, which are easy to master with good basic fitness. A good level of fitness is useful on the climbs to Trasimeno Lake and Todi. Otherwise, the route through the unique landscape of Umbria is usually flat and on low-traffic side roads.

If you don’t know Umbria yet, why not get to know it on a cycling holiday!

Tour itinerary

Receival of the travel documents and rental bikes by one of the hotel's employees. In the evening you enjoy a welcome drink on the sun terrace.

The river Tiber is not many kilometers away. You cycle along the river valley past the shimmering sunflowers and wheat fields. From afar you will then see the dome of Santa Maria degli Angeli, which is a pilgrimage church. It is well worth taking a break here especially if you haven't already. There is a short ascent up to Assisi after the church. The town of Saint Francis lies impressively on the edge of Mount Subasio. Finally, you cycle back down into the Tiber valley back to your luxury accommodation

The typical, Umbrian landscape accompanies you today on your bike tour to Todi. Between the olive groves you keep on getting magnificent views across the Tiber valley. In the spring, the gorse shines vibrant yellow and in summer it is the turn of the sunflowers. In the distance you can see where you are headed for, Todi. Admire the medieval Piazza del Popolo whilst drinking a creamy cappuccino. In the evening you take the train back to San Martino in Campo.

Some might say that Umbria comes across in a cliche way in today's stage. You cycle through golden wheat fields that are only interrupted by lush green vineyards and silver shimmering olive groves. The route gently undulates as you head from village to village. at the well-known Chiorri vineyard there is a wine tasting session waiting for you. But not just fine wine, you will also enjoy a traditional lunch on the terrace with a beautiful view all around you. Afterwards you have only got to cycle a few kilometres to return to your hotel.

There are three cultural highlights making for an entertaining cycle today. Bettona perches majestically like a swallow's nest on a small hill and has a medieval flair with its narrow roads. You also immerse yourself into Bevagna and its ancient history. To top the day off you will visit Montefalco, which is a medieval town surrounded by a wall and that has breathtaking views at the ready for you across the valley. All of these amazing towns that you cycle through today meant that we almost forgot to mention that today's cycle route itself is magnificent... In the evening you return to the hotel by bus transfer.

Today you pedal through olive groves and small Umbrian villages until you get to Lake Trasimeno. It will glisten in front of your eyes and will entice you in for a swim. Enjoy the extensive views of the surrounding area once again with the shining sunflower fields and the lush green vineyards. Take a break in one of the traditional Trattorias that you pass on your way and enjoy the Italian hospitality whilst drinking a good glass of Umbrian Grechetto.

Characteristics of the route

On the stages to Lake Trasimeno and to Todi there are several longer ascents. All of the other day rides are predominantly flat or only have very small ascents. You cycle on wonderful, quiet side roads. Occasionally you cycle on good quality tracks. You only have to cycle on slightly busier roads on short connecting sections.

Ambitioniertes Radfahren im hügligen Umbrien
Sehr schönes Hotel mit sehr gutem Restaurant und sehr freundlichem Personal. Radtouren interessant und anspruchsvoll besonders nach Todi mit Schlussanstieg von 18%. Wir waren mit Hardtail MTBs unterwegs. Dies war bei den schlechten Straßen und Wegen angebracht. Uns haben die touristisch nicht so überlaufenen Städte wie Perugia, Todi, Montefalco sehr gut gefallen. Highlight war das Mittagessen mit Weinverkostung im Weingut Chiorri. Reichlich feine Küche und guter Wein serviert von der sehr freundlichen Cheffin, ausserdem super Aussicht von der Terrasse bis Assisi. Besonderes Dankeschön und Lob an den italienischen Transferfahrer von Todi zum Hotel. Er arrangierte eine sofortige Reparatur an meinem MTB (defekte Speiche und Unwucht) in einer ausgezeichneten Werkstatt in Todi. Gleichfalls Dank an Herrn Larcher, der unseren Termin für die Weinverkostung bei Chiorri umorganisierte, da der Voucher auf einen Radtransfertermin ausgestellt war. Die Kommunikation mit ihm über WhatsApp klappte vorzüglich. Vielen Dank, wir hatten einen tollen Radurlaub.

Heißes Umbrien mit E-Bikes auch im Juli/August möglich
Die Auswahl der Routen, die Routenführung (GPS, schematische Karte, €-Kennzeichnung) und die angefahrenen Städte und Dörfer waren gut. Es ist aber zu empfehlen, sich die Kompass 1:50,000 Umbrien Karten zu kaufen und sich über die Sehenswürdigkeiten an den Strecken im Internet genauer zu informieren, dann hat man noch mehr von den Touren. Man kann auch rund um den Aufenthaltsort gut Pizza oder Italienisch essen gehen, im Sommer finden abends auch viele "Dorffeste" statt. Die 2-malige Rückholung mittels Kleinbus fonktionierte reibungslos. Für die Sommermonate sind aber E-Bikes fast ein Muß, sonst braucht man wohl die Top-Kondition der Jugend. Bei der Fahrt nach Todi kommen 900 Höhenmeter und ca. 60 km zusammen, wenn man auf den steilen Hügel der sehr sehenswerten Stadt hinauf radelt.

Umbrien
Ein Highlight war Assisi, ebenso Montefalco! Die Straßen sind in einem sehr schlechten Zustand, ein Mountainbike ist auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert! Der Rücktransfer von Todi mit dem Zug ist laut dem Hotelpersonal nicht möglich. Das Hotel war kulinarisch spitze! Das Personal sehr freundlich und zum Teil sogar deutschsprachig!
