ASSISI AND GUBBIO

Starting from € 1184.00

A ride through history, art and culture and the lands of the patron saint of Italy St. Francis of Assisi. We spend five nights in Riccione and two nights in Gubbio to visit the city of Assisi.

Three stages pedalling through Romagna, Marche and Umbria, across the Apennine mountains, with their twists and turns and sanctuaries, always with Dory Style philosophy.

A trip to the heart of Italy with its cultural, religious and culinary traditions with emphasis on hospitality and that welcoming attitude so typical of our country.

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