Bike trail in Umbria, from Trevi to Giano, via Montefalco

Back to the exploration

Bike trail in Umbria, from Trevi to Giano, via Montefalco

Cycling down in the Umbria valley, then up to Giano with some hard-core pedal power

On this route we will pass through the entire Valle dell’Umbria, from one hill to the other. We will set off from the magnificent village of Trevi, which always fills visitors with awe and wonder, immersed as it is in lush greenery, with its age-old olive trees seeming almost to embrace and protect it. We will immediately go down into the valley and cross it, passing through beautiful countryside and remote villages.

We won’t spend much time in the plains, only a few kilometres, before the bike trail in Umbria take us back up to Montefalco in search of the spectacular landscape of the gently rolling green hills laced with vineyards and olive groves.

The ride will always be easy-going but at this point you’ll have to put in a bit more pedal power as we will be aiming for Giano dell’Umbria, which seems to dominate this flank of the mountain with its imposing and beautiful walls.

This route is suitable for those who are well-trained, but it will also reward you with the beauty of its landscapes, while our guide provides stories and anecdotes along the route, one that seems to belong to quite another era.
