Umbria Bike Tours


Known as the ‘green heart’ of Italy, Umbria is lush and beautiful. Our Umbrian cycling tours will take you through vibrant valleys to charming towns and villages, stopping off along the way to sample local wines and delicacies as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Tucked away between the verdant hills and swathes of wheat fields lies Lake Trasimeno. It is a hidden gem for locals and an inviting place to enjoy a gentle cycle along its shady shoreline, where historic castles and ancient forts are interspersed with sandy beaches and lakeside resorts.

Umbria has a strong food tradition, which relies on the produce of the land.  Expect delicious pork dishes, especially ham and sausages, earthy lentil stews and the inimitable taste of fresh truffles grated onto pasta tossed in the freshest olive oil. Experience these with a glass of wine from Orvieto, Sagrantino or Sangiovese grapes.
