Located just east of Tuscany, Umbria is the birthplace of St. Francis and home to some of Italy's best preserved medieval towns. Join us as we pedal from Perugia to Spoleto through vineyards and olive groves and over gently rolling hills to monasteries, castles, and stone villages virtually unchanged since the Middle Ages. Along the way, you'll enjoy a two-night stay in Foligno and visits to important cities like Perugia, Assisi, Spello and Spoleto. These historic cities, built by Umbrians or Romans and then rebuilt or refurbished over the centuries, are a sight to see as are the small villages we pass through or stay in along the way. Add a visit to central Italy's best known ceramics' town, Deruta and a taste of Sagrantino di Montefalco and other Umbrian wines, and this tour is a classic Italian bike ride.

Highlights: Guided tour in Assisi, 2 nights in Foligno, Ceramics in Deruta, Wine Museum, Spoleto and its 5th Century BC walls, Spello and frescoes of Perugino and Pinturecchio, Olive oil tasting, 2 wine tastings.

***If this sounds great but you prefer a longer tour. Join us for the Bicycling Verdant Umbria Plus! Todi and Orvieto which extends this itinerary 3 days.***
