Description

Day 1: Assisi
Individual arrival at the hotel in Assisi, located 900 meters from the historic center, or at Viole, 3 km from Assisi.

Day 2: Assisi – Spello – Foligno – Casco dell’Acqua (26 km; +166/-329 m)
Today's route will take you through the wonderful cities of Spello and Foligno. Spello is of Roman origin, from which period date the Venus Gate (1st century AD), the remains of an aqueduct (visitable at the Tourist Office), and the ruins of the amphitheater located outside the city walls. Very interesting is the church of Santa Maria Maggiore, where you can admire the imposing frescoes of Pinturicchio. Today's stage is mostly flat; pedaling through the Umbra Valley in complete relaxation on small country roads between rivers, canals, and expanses of fields, you will eventually reach your hotel in Casco dell’Acqua.

Day 3: Casco dell’Acqua – Spoleto – Casco dell’Acqua (44 km; +/-146 m or 51 km; +/-292 m)
Today's itinerary is short, so you will have plenty of time to visit the city of Spoleto, which you will reach by biking through olive groves. Spoleto is a welcoming city with many excellent restaurants and small shops offering typical products such as truffle, wine, olive oil, and handmade goods. The historic center, for the most part still surrounded by medieval walls, stands on a hill. There is so much to see in town, like the Cathedral, the Bridge of Towers, the Fortress, the Roman house, and theater with the Archaeological Museum. After the visit, return by bike through the Valley to your Country House in Casco dell’Acqua.

Day 4: Casco dell’Acqua – Montefalco – Torgiano (51 km; +438/-430 m or 55 km; +250/-272 m)
Today you cross the Valley in the direction of Torgiano. Once below Montefalco, you can choose whether to tackle the steep climb that leads to the city, or continue on a flat route going directly to Bevagna, which has a wonderful square with a fountain and two Romanesque churches. If you opt for the climb to Montefalco, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Spoleto Valley. The city has produced no fewer than eight saints and for this reason Montefalco is also called A piece of heaven fallen to earth. The local exquisite wines, such as the Red and the Sagrantino of Montefalco, surely belong to heaven. A visit to the Museum of San Francesco is certainly worthwhile. Then, pedaling along vineyards and canals, you will arrive at the village of Torgiano, located in a suggestive hilly landscape and perched on a hill, at the confluence of the Tiber with the Chiascio. Set in this very fertile land, Torgiano has become the center of a famous winegrowing area, the first in Umbria to have gained the D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. appellation for Torgiano Rosso Riserva. An important role in these developments has been played by Giorgio Lungarotti, who specialized the agricultural company of his parents in a modern winery of international renown. Do not forget to visit the Wine Museum, founded by Maria Grazia Lungarotti. Its collection has been open to the public since 1974. The Museum is located in the Graziani-Baglioni Palace, dating back to the 17th century. Some years ago, the Lungarotti family also opened the Oil Museum.

Day 5: Torgiano (24 km; +218/-212 m or 32 km; +400/-442 m or 45 km; +508/-546 m)
Today you will have the opportunity to choose between three different itineraries. The first will take you to discover the beautiful city of Perugia with its Renaissance palaces, countless churches, monasteries, and museums. You follow a short and easy itinerary that will take you to the station of Ponte San Giovanni, where you will take the local train to reach the center of Perugia. The second will take you to bike to the historic center of Perugia, passing through country roads to the city entrance and then climbing to the historic center, with its narrow alleys and characteristic squares. There is so much to see: Renaissance palaces, medieval churches, museums, and galleries. After the visit, a beautiful descent will take you back to Torgiano. The third will let you discover the nearby city of Deruta, famous since ancient times for its potters. Today there are still many workshops that produce high-quality ceramics. The Pinacoteca is instead located inside the Town Hall and preserves frescoes dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. You will leave Deruta and then pedal to the sanctuary of Madonna dei Bagni, built in the seventeenth century in memory of a miraculous event. The church houses over six hundred votive majolicas. Pedaling through a hilly landscape you will pass through typical Umbrian villages like Casalalta. Return to Torgiano through the Tiber Valley.

Day 6: Torgiano – Assisi (25 km; +251/-54 m)
Today you will cross the Valley riding peaceful roads. You will have a beautiful view of Assisi from afar, built on the slopes of Mount Subasio. To reach the center you will need to make a small effort, but it will certainly be worth it. After the visit, return to the starting hotel.

Day 7: Assisi
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure.
