We are all concerned about the spread of Covid-19, how it can affect our family, work and holidays. We are of course monitoring the official information related to the spread of Covid-19.
Umbria, the green heart of Italy, is one of the first Italian regions that is coming out of this epidemic, with a few infections since mid-April. Slowly, time has come to think about how tourism will start again in this beautiful, healthy part of Italy, where social distancing has always been a rule, given the low population density and wide uninhabited green spaces.
Meravigliosa Umbra offers individual walking and cycling tours in nature, in full compliance with the rules of civil coexistence recommended in this historical moment. At first, traveling again will mean being reconciled with nature and with us, you can do it in peace and tranquillity.
Culture, excellent food and wine, lots of green, small villages, outdoor tourism and above all health and safety: the (even more) green heart of Italy is able to offer all this to you.
We are happy to inform you that in 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.
All the year round
Umbria is a region of extraordinary riches: it is the central treasure chest of Italy and when opened it reveals flourishing unspoilt nature, artistic marvels which are hard to match, but also excellent food and wine.
Our cycle holidays are for those who would like to esplore Umbria in all its aspects, because you will find a perfect combination of nature, culture, history and local traditions.
Our walking tours offer the right combination of visiting typical Umbrian towns, walking through exciting colourful landscapes with unique views and feel the warm welcome of the local inhabitants.
Meravigliosa Umbria hires comfortable hybrid-bikes with an aluminium frame and 3 x 8/9 gears.
We have also available e-bikes, kids-trailers, child seats, child bikes, MTB and carbon road bikes.
Discover the beauty of Umbria, the Green Heart of Italy ! Enjoy with us the intensely coloured Umbrian landscapes, the fascinating culture, the suggestive medieval towns and villages, the hospitable inhabitants, the tasty local cuisine and the exciting wines! Our hiking trips, cycling tours and day tours will give you the best of the lovely region of Umbria… and sometimes even a touch of stunning Tuscany and Lazio, like the pilgrimage walk along the ‘Way of Saint Francis’.
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

A holiday we will not forget!!!
