Assisi and Umbria at a gentle pace
Umbria's Green Valleys From the Pilgrimage Town of Assisi

Tour Description: Self-guided

Umbria has been praised for its pure beauty since Roman times, because of its greenness, many lakes, rivers, refreshing springs, mountain streams and waterfalls.

This not-too-strenuous cycle tour, mainly in the valley with only a few rolling parts,  will bring you to lively, medieval villages and towns of the green valley "Valle Umbra," such as Assisi, Spello, Foligno, Spoleto, Bevagna and Perugia. You will have enough time to visit these towns.

The tour starts and finishes close to Assisi, which rises on a mountainous branch of the Monte Subasio, and its highest point, where the castle is located, is 1,650 feet. This beautiful pilgrimage town, with its narrow alleys, cozy squares and many medieval monuments, will make an unforgettable impression.

On the first day the scenic route winds its way through the fertile valley till Campello sul Clitunno, famous for its refreshing springs, immersed in an enchanting oasis of peace.  The second day, you will make a short circular tour among olive groves to Spoleto, an interesting town full of life, with many squares, lovely little streets and the Duomo with the frescoes of the Florentine painter Filippo Lippi, the Roman Theater and the medieval bridge and aqueduct Ponte delle Torri.

The second part of the tour will bring you to Torgiano and Perugia, the capital of the province, with its solemn Renaissance palaces, museums, impressive churches and tightly winding shopping streets. A short ride along the quiet country roads of the valley will bring you back to Assisi.
