Visit Italy and have not seen Umbria is unthinkable!
Umbria is a region in central Italy, bordered by Tuscany, Marche and Lazio. The high mountains, hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, many lakes, and beautiful medieval hilltop villages, make it a paradise for lovers of nature, outdoor activities, delicious food and divine wines.
Enjoy the intensely coloured Umbrian landscapes, the rural charm, fascinating culture, suggestive towns and villages, hospitable inhabitants, the tasty local cuisine!
Since 2000 Meravigliosa Umbria has organized walking tours, cycling holidays, hiking vacations along the pilgrimage route the ‘Way of Saint Francis’, and funny day tours/activities, such as wine-tasting, truffle hunting, olive oil tastings, paragliding, and cooking lessons in this stunning region! Or you could just rent a bike (hybrid, e-bike, gravel, or road bike) and enjoy a nice ride exploring the Umbrian countryside by yourself or with a guide!
Walk and cycle in Umbria along undiscovered trails in a stunning green landscape, through vineyards & olive groves, passing medieval wine villages, and enjoying the Umbria lifestyle!
Umbria is a region of extraordinary riches: it is the central treasure chest of Italy and when opened it reveals flourishing unspoiled nature, artistic marvels that are hard to match, but also excellent food and wine.

Dear Petra and Paulo,
Just a short note to thank you for organizing such a wonderful cycling tour for us. It was great – the routes, the e bicycles, the hotels, etc. We appreciated that you fixed the issues we had with the bikes right away. We will send you some comments when we return home
We just saw Paulo. Mille Grazie!
Dear Petra and Paolo
Thank you so much for all your help and support during our trip to Umbria. You were extremely responsive and always there for us. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend your tours. It was great meeting both of you and we will definitely look at booking with you for our future trips.
All the best
Just a quick note to say thank you (dank u)!! Amy and I had a fantastic time on our short trip to Umbria. The bikes worked perfectly, the hotels were VERY comfortable, and the cooking class was very fun! Have a good rest of the year and wish you continued success.
I speak on behalf of the four of us that we enjoyed the trip immensely.
Everything was right: the organization was perfect, the hospitality of the people, the beauty of nature and culture, the feast of delicious dishes, walking through varied landscapes with beautiful views.
We look back on a wonderful week
We have now returned from our holiday in Italy. Most of our time was taken on your walks in Umbria & Emilia Romagna. What a wonderful time we had! Everything worked out well. The accommodation, the beautiful countryside we walked through & those fabulous meals!! Such friendly people, we met too. Thank you for your assistance & advice.
A holiday we will not forget!!!

Thank you so much for arranging our walking tour in Umbria. It was a wonderful walk and and your service was excellent all along.
Thank you (and Paulo) and best regards,
Gideon & Noga
We had a great time, it was the perfect level of cycling to get our boys into the idea of vacationing by bike again in the future. We also were lucky enough to be in Torgiano the night of a big food and wine festival, which was really fun to experience. Thank you again for arranging such a wonderful vacation for us!
We returned home from Italy about two weeks ago and I felt it would be amiss of me not to touch base with you and thank you for your assistance in arranging the Medieval villages walk in Umbria. We spent a month in Italy and the walk was in our first week of being in the country. Friends keep asking us, what was the highlight and we keep saying that whilst it was all fantastic, we absolutely loved the simplicity of the walk and our favourite accommodation of the entire trip was definitely Assisi (please pass this onto them). It was such a lovely setting, relaxed and the staff were just so lovely and helpful and the place was so clean and the pool just made it extra relaxing, so Im so glad we stayed extra nights before the walk. All of the accommodation was excellent, but Assisi did feel special. The walk itself was fabulous. The instructions were good and the GPS App worked really well except for in one section when it indicated that we were off track by quite a bit but we stuck to the written instructions and that got us through.
So many thanks from Mat and myself and it was lovely to meet you in Assis and we appreciate the wonderful service and support you provided.
Maddy and Mat
