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 Low Valnerina and its villages, by running parallel to the Francis route for long stretches. 

The itinerary is 29 km long, alternates asphalt and dirt road, but always runs on secondary streets without traffic. Along the itinerary there are no heavy uphills, but just a series of short bumps; the most significant uphill is about 1 km long and reaches St. Anatolia in the historical center.

The route runs along the shores of the Nera river and is constantly immersed in the green, by making it really agreeable from the natural point of view. At the same time the route crosses the many villages  located on top of the hills in this part of the Valnerina. True gems are St. Anatolia di Narco, Scheggino, Ceselli, Ferentillo, Arrone, Castel di Lago that deserve short stops, so to visit their historical centers and maybe taste the food and wine excellencies of this territory.

It´s an easy itinerary, suitable to everyone with a minimum training and wishing to enjoy a day immersed in the Valnerina´s nature.
