Arrival in Torgiano. You'll stay at Hotel Al Grappolo D'Oro, ideally located in the historical center of this wine village. If you arrive early enough, you can visit the wine and olive oil museums, a short stroll from the hotel before an included dinner at the restaurant here. Your bikes will be at the hotel waiting for you.
Bevagna: Riding east of Torgiano, you'll make your way to Assisi, the hometown of St. Francis, Italy's patron saint and founder of one of the world's largest monastic orders. The town itself is tiered with pink stone set in a verdant valley with sacred Mt.Subasio as a backdrop. You'll have the chance to visit the important monuments here with lots of excellent restaurants to choose from. Afterwards, continue along a cycling path to the quaint village of Spello, filled with interesting shops and galleries. In Bevagna, stay at Palazzo Brunamonti, a former palace recently converted into a distinctive hotel in the historical center.
Bevagna: Next day, begin with a walking tour where a local guide will reveal secret treasures of Bevagna. Your cycling route on this day will include options to Trevi and Spoleto. Each are hill-towns seductively medieval in appearance with great restaurants and cafes. (72 km)
Bevagna: If you rode to Trevi yesterday, you could ride to Spoleto today, with a diversion to Montefalco, where superb views, and great wines await. Finish your trip with a restaurant meal in our favourite enoteca in town. (40km)
Departure day. Be sure to spend a final few moments enjoying the delights of Bevagna before you travel to your next destination.
"We have just returned from our tour of Umbria and cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it was! We were very satisfied and pleased with the routes chosen, the accommodations, all aspects of the tour… We would not hesitate to make another trip if able. This trip exceeded our expectations in all ways. Thank you so much."
