Covid 19: Tourism in full compliance with the recommended rules of civil coexistence
Umbria, the green heart of Italy, is a region where social distancing has always been a rule, given the low population density and wide uninhabited green spaces. At first, traveling again will mean being reconciled with nature and with us, you can do it in peace and tranquillity. We are happy to inform you that at this extraordinary moment we have changed the cancellation policy of our tours, in case there might be new governmental restrictions in the future.
The new terms are available on our ‘conditions‘ page.
This is cycling on quiet country roads among the colourful fields, with a beautiful backdrop of hills covered with silver-green olive groves and fertile vineyards.
Daily all year round
This tour is the perfect combination of visiting typical Umbrian medieval towns and walking through exciting colourful landscapes with unique views.

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!

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.

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.
