Florence – Rome
Art Masterpieces and bright landscapes

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 8 days
Distance: 285 - 285 km
Landscape:

Discover a new side of Italy with us: quiet, sometimes almost mystical! On this tour you will see cities like Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto, or Narni, which have incredible art treasures and carry its visitors back into the Middle Ages. On generally isolated roads, the tour takes you through the valleys of the Apennines, over the softly curved hills of Lake Trasimeno, and through the solitude of small Umbrian villages. Going by bike is one of the best ways to explore this area. You can smell the sweet odors, rest in a tavern, and fortify yourself for the next stages.

We cannot guarantee it, but the probability is high that Italy will welcome you with sa unny weather. At the end of your trip, the “Eternal City” of Rome will welcome you. There, you can put your bike aside and enjoy the liveliness of the city. If you want to leave the stress of a hectic world completely behind you, then you will love this trip and keep lots of great memories of it.
You will cycle on a slightly hilly route during the whole tour; in between there are longer flat sections. You will find yourself almost exclusively on asphalt tracks and quiet side streets, partly also bad road conditions. Only very short sections are on busier roads, especially when entering or leaving cities.

Day 2:

(approx. 60 km + train journey)

In the morning, you will take the train to Arezzo. There, you can visit the beautiful churches and palaces of the city of antiquities and gold. With your bike you will cycle on beautiful trails through the vast plains of the Val di Chiana, constantly accompanied by hill and mountain silhouettes of the southern Tuscany.

Tonight, you will spend the night in Passignano

Day 3:

(approx. 35 km)

You will cycle along the lake to Torricella. From there you will continue through open fields, rolling hills and idyllic places to Perugia. Stroll through one of the nicest shopping streets of Italy to the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, the Palazzo dei Priori, or the Arco Etrusco... the Umbrian capital will fascinate you!

Day 4:

(approx. 30 km)

After having crossed the river Tiber, it is only a few kilometres by bike to the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi. However, before you cycle up to the mystical city, you will take a trip to one of the most beautiful sanctuaries of Umbria: S. M. degli Angeli! In Assisi, you can immerse yourself in the colourful world of medieval frescoes by Giotto.

Day 5:

(approx. 55 km)

Your way leads you along the foot of the mighty Mount Subasio to the still entirely preserved medieval town Spello. Afterwards, you will continue through the Valle Umbra to Spoleto.
