A three-day proposal in one of the most beautiful areas of Umbria, which combines the beauties of Spoleto and villages such as Sant’Anatolia, Scheggino, Ferentillo and Arrone, with the uncontaminated nature of the Valnerina, before ending in front of the stupendous spectacle of the Marmore waterfall. You will pedal along the evocative route of the former Spoleto-Norcia railway, in the section that goes from Spoleto to Sant’Anatolia di Narco, the one with the most viaducts and tunnels, and then in the Greenway section which runs along the Nera and which will take you to the waterfalls always away from traffic.
The itinerary develops in the southern area of Umbria, between Spoleto and Valnerina. On the first day we will have to face the pass that leads up to the Caprareccia tunnel: it is about 6 kilometres but with very gentle slopes, given that in the past it was travelled by train. The second day there are no demanding climbs, but mostly ups and downs that need to be tackled with the right gears. In the second day, in any case, the route mainly tends to descend.
Individual arrival in Spoleto. The historic centre is full of artistic and cultural beauties, which in recent years have been made famous by the filming of “Don Matteo”. In addition, in every period of the year it offers entertainment opportunities such as festivals, shows, displays. A city on a human scale, ideal to discover on foot or even by bike, an optimal starting point for our tours.
Dinner and overnight.
Day 2 – Spoleto-Castel San Felice (20km)
A truly suggestive itinerary, which will allow you to pedal along the route of the former Spoleto-Norcia railway, facing tunnels and viaducts that will take you into the greenery of the Valnerina. The first part of the fraction is all uphill, while the second is downhill. The slopes are never challenging.
Dinner and overnight.
