Tiber Cycle Route from Città di Castello to Perugia

Tiber Cycle Route from Città di Castello to Perugia

Tiber Cycle Route from Città di Castello to Perugia

A cycle route of about 60 km along the Tiber from Città di Castello to Perugia, on the model of one of the most famous European cycle routes. It´s an easy and totally flat itinerary, that alternates been recently built cycle paths and secondary roads with little traffic and immersed in nature.

The itinerary starts from the most important town of the Upper Tiber Valley, Città di Castello, for then following the course of the river South, by cycling in a mainly rural context, among cultivated fields and woods, while enjoying the song of birds and the noise of the river. Through a small detour and a short uphill it´s possible to visit the village of Montone, one of Italy's most beautiful villages, perched on a hill, before reaching Umbertide.

From here, among ancient farmyards, abbeys, small villages, the cycle path goes on following the river´s course until reaching the gates of Perugia, alternating routes with little traffic and dedicated cycle lanes.

It´s an ideal itinerary to discover the beauty of the Umbrian capital along with a new and less visited area of the green heart: it´s a perfect mix among rural landscapes and artistic treasures, suitable to everyone who loves travelling slowly and visiting unspoilt places.

From Perugia it´s possible to continue to Assisi, and from here to go on along the Assisi-Spoleto cycle route, through an interesting cycling itinerary, and even onto the Marmore Waterfall, having started in Città di Castello.
