A bicycle ride to Todi, across the Tiber and the Martani Mountains, in one of the most beautiful and charming areas of Umbria

This route starts in Todi, one of the most visited and intriguing villages in Umbria. Before leaving, or on the way back, stop to visit the old town centre to admire the splendid Piazza del Popolo, where you can also find the Palazzo del Popolo, Palazzo dei Priori, Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo and the Cathedral.

 

The route features two climbs: one that is long and uneven, taking you first to Collazzone and then to San Terenziano; the second takes you back to the centre of Todi. The total length of the route is 51 kilometres, with 900 metres of altitude difference, and requires a good level of training as well as the capacity to pace yourself.

Apart from Todi, the most beautiful section of the route is towards the middle, far from the traffic and usual tourist attractions, where you can discover the villages of Collazzone and San Terenziano, as well as enjoy the splendid panorama of Umbria, in an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity.

 


In the distance one can make out the unmistakable silhouette of Todi, and the sharp profile of Montecastello di Vibio, which on the other side of the Tiber Valley harbours the Concord Theatre, the smallest in the world. Enjoy a peaceful ride and let yourself be seduced by this hidden side of Umbria.
