The Countryside around Giano dell’Umbria

An easy cycle ride through vineyards and olive groves at the foot of the Martani mountains

This pleasant tour will take us around the countryside that goes from Giano dell’Umbria towards Montefalco, on a path with features that make it quite easy to cycle: in fact it only measures 18 km with an elevation gain of some 360 metres. The departure and arrival points will be in Fabbri di Giano and from there we will cycle towards the magnificent countryside that separates the two cities by pedalling through lush olive groves with silvery foliage that will gradually give way to the fine vineyards of Sagrantino. These crops, grown from time immemorial, have made an important contribution to rendering these areas famous. Learning about the centuries-old traditions surrounding them while cycling alongside them will be particularly enjoyable and illuminating. We are expecting you, book now!
