GUBBIO AND PERUGIA

Starting from € 980

A cycling tour in the centre of Italy discovering beautiful cities that are rich in history along a mountain route that is far from traffic with a cycling guide and a supporting van.

Gubbio and Perugia are the cities we will sleep in. We will admire Lake Trasimeno and visit the towns of Cortona and Arezzo in Tuscany from where we will set off to return to Riccione by minibus.

Gubbio and Perugia by bike "à la carte" For private groups we can also organize this program in different periods of the year. Please contact us.

70 km 980 mt
Gubbio - Perugia
(Tour Umbria and Tuscany)
74 km 1200 mt
Perugia - Arezzo
(Tour Umbria and Tuscany)
79 km 638 mt


The tour leaves from Urbino, where we will arrive by minibus from Riccione, transporting our bicycles, right away we will visit the old town, which many of our guests already know, then we will head down towards the Furlo Gorge, where we will have our first break for refreshments before climbing towards the Scheggia Pass and descending towards Gubbio, an ancient Medieval town, where we will have dinner and spend the first night.

The second leg will take us from Gubbio to Assisi, the town of Saint Francis, the Patron Saint of Italy, which we will visit before arriving in the town of Perugia with its wonderful historic centre. In Perugia we will have dinner in a typical restaurant and stop for the night.

During the third leg, from Perugia to Arezzo, we will ride along Lake Trasimeno, the most important lake in the centre of Italy, with its wonderful colours and landscapes, and cycle through the town of Cortona, which is old and perfectly preserved, here we will have a break and visit the town. The arrival point on this day, which is the last, is in Arezzo, a prehistoric settlement that became Etruscan and then Roman, and that is now an important Provincial capital with  archaeological sites that date back to Etruscan and Roman times. 

We will return to Riccione from Arezzo by minibus.

For its distances and gentle slopes the route is easy and suitable for cyclists in the “Cappucino Light” group, who have trained to cycle for about 5/6 hours a day.

This is a wonderful opportunity to blend our passion for cycling with our love for the most beautiful and authentic part of Italy!  

 

Best period: from April to half September
