Rome

Experience the World Heritage cities of Florence and Rome, and discover Italy’s quieter side as you skirt the Apennine Mountains and tour through Umbria’s green heart, stopping off at ancient towns. As you ride through rural Italy, you’ll pass raging rivers, plunging gorges and roaming sheep. Look forward to peaceful pedalling past the soft hills surrounding Lake Trasimeno and enjoy the tranquility of traditional Umbrian villages. To make the riding even more relaxed, opt for an electric bike.

Each historic town and astounding ancient ruin you’ll visit holds unique appeal. The world famous pilgrimage city of Assisi lives up to the hype, Spello’s streets are some of the prettiest in Italy and the romantic city of Terni is renowned for its excellent pastries and creative cuisine.

An extra day to fully appreciate the endless UNESCO sites and jaw dropping artworks in Florence or Rome is highly recommended if you have time.
