A wonderful way to see the Umbrian countryside. Beautiful hilltop towns and a great mix of riding on the flat, hills and trails. Never a shortage of places to stop and admire the scenery and the food and wine of the area are both amazing. We had a brilliant time but be warned - half of the days are not 'gently rolling'.
