The Nera Cycle Route, in the section from St. Anatolia di Marco to the Marmore Waterfall, is included in the wider and more challenging ring of the Nera´s Greenway and connects the former Spoleto-Norcia railway with the Lower Valnerina and its villages, running parallel to the St. Francis way for long stretches. 

The itinerary is 29 km long, alternates asphalt and dirt road, but always runs on secondary streets with little traffic. Along the itinerary there are no heavy uphills, but just a series of short bumps; the most significant ascent is about 1 km long from the valley floor to the centre of St. Anatolia.

The route runs along the shore of the Nera river and is constantly immersed in the green, by making it a very pleasant and leafy trip. At the same time the route crosses the many villages located on the hills in this part of the Valnerina. True gems are St. Anatolia di Narco, Scheggino, Ceselli, Ferentillo, Arrone, Casteldilago that deserve short visit to their historical centers and maybe taste the excellent food and wine of this territory.

It´s an easy itinerary, suitable to everyone with a minimum level of training who wishesto enjoy a day immersed in the nature of the Valnerina.
