Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary


Day 1: Assisi

Individual arrival in Assisi, the medieval town, birthplace of St. Francis.

Day 2: Assisi–Spoleto (50 km)

This is the most exciting stage of the tour with many possible stops. The first one is Spello, a walled town with a large number of Roman ruins. You’ll reach then Foligno, famous for its two wonderful town squares. The stage ends in Spoleto, a well preserved medieval village.

Day 3: Spoleto–Todi (60 km)

Today you’ll cycle among oaks and olive trees as far as Todi, one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Italy, perched on a hill and overlooking the Tiber valley.

Day 4: Todi–Orvieto (45 km)

You cycle through small villages in the middle of the nature. A variation of the stage takes you to Lake Corbara. On the last kilometres the white tuff cliff town of Orvieto will emerge from the rolling hills. The Gothic façade of the cathedral of Orvieto is just one of the many unique monuments covering millenniums of history.

Day 5: Orvieto–Città della Pieve (45 km)

Today the stage is quite demanding: you’ll cycle through rolling hills, but you’ll be highly rewarded by reaching your destination: Città della Pieve, a medieval village still surrounded by 14th century city walls.

Day 6: Città della Pieve–Perugia (60 km by bike + 20 km by train)

You’ll reach the beautiful Trasimeno Lake and pedal along its northern shores till you get to Magione and its castle. From here take a train to Perugia, a splendid old town surrounded by Etruscan city walls.

Day 7: Perugia–Assisi (35 km)

You’ll cross the Tiber plain and reach Santa Maria degli Angeli at the foot of Assisi: here many places are linked to the everyday life of Saint Francis. The town will astonish you with its art, monuments and the 13th century Basilica.

Day 8: Assisi

Departure after breakfast.

Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Along the way you may find temporary deviations (for example road works) which cannot be foreseen; in this case each rider can decide autonomously how to deal with these stretches.
