The Best of Umbria and Tuscany
From Assisi to Siena
Bike through the splendor of Umbria & Tuscany, Italy’s most famous wine regions. Your journey will begin in the town of Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Perched high on top of a cliffside, this medieval town hosts some of the most important early Renaissance frescoes in the world.
Descend down into the verdant hills of Umbria past sun-kissed vineyards & ancient olive groves until you reach the sparkling waters of Lake Trasimeno. On the other side of the lake lies many of the most famous vineyards in Tuscany, where you can stop for a tasting, as well as the town of Pienza, another UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its Renaissance masterpieces & charming cobblestone streets. Enjoy exploring the many palaces & cathedrals, or a refreshing spritz in the main piazza. Then it’s onwards through the most famous hills of Tuscany (and yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site), Val d’Orcia. Your final destination is the town of Siena (your fourth UNESCO World Heritage Site!). Here you can taste the nutty-sweet “panforte” cake, artisan pecorino cheeses & the unbeatable wines. You can also see some of the most notable art & architecture from the 13-16th centuries & visit the piazza where the 400-year old tradition of the Palio horse race takes place.
