  1. CORTONA AND TRASIMENO LAKE Day 1 & 2 – Cortona

    Arrival in Cortona, the small medioeval town that Mayes’ book has made famous. The next morning, after welcome meeting proceed toward Trasimeno lake shores descending soft hills covered by the yellow broom bushes. You will spend the second night at Cristina’s house enjoying an Italian family.

  2. COOKING CLASS Day 3 – La Corte del Poggio Loop

    You can have a rest day with just a loop to Panicale and a cooking class in the afternoon (not included in the price) or an alternative shorter loop to visit Monte Vibiano winery ( 35 km ). You can make a longer loop (50 km) to visit Deruta, famous for its ceramic.

  3. PERUGIA Day 4 – La corte del Poggio – Perugia – 32 km

    Your day destination is Perugia, the main town in Umbria, with its fine square and communal palace, its renaissance painting collection, and the Rocca Paolina, the subterranean town . Perugia is also a lively town with shops and fashionable boutiques. Spend the night in town.

  4. DERUTA Day 5 – Perugia – Assisi – 35 km

    We are now in the heart of Umbria; visit Torgiano, if a wine tasting might be dangerous for your safety (!) a visit to the wine museum is advised. Assisi is probably the most famous town of Umbria. Spend the night there in a lovely country Inn.

  5. ASSISI Day 6 – Free day in Assisi

    Assisi deserve an entire day to enjoy and your Inn has a lovely swimming pool to relax. However if you want some exercise we have a half day hike to reach the Eremo delle carceri the San Francis peaceful retreat just above Assisi.

  6. THE HEART OF UMBRIA Day 7 – Assisi – Spello

    We bike in the very core of Umbria: from Assisi to Spello, and, if you haven’t had enough, on to Bevagna the lovely medieval town where each sumer a huge medieval festival is held that feature ancient workshops and costumes. Overnight in Spello.

Accommodation Level

What happens if I can’t walk / cycle a stage?

If you find the stage too long or if for any reason you cannot walk at all for one day, let us know the previous week and we can arrange for you to go for a short stretch or for the entire stage with the luggage transfer . In some cases a small fee will be asked and you can pay it directly to the driver.

When is the best time of year?

Generally speaking the best season is certainly from April to October; however, it varies with each stage:
– You can only cross the Alps(week 1) from June 15th to September 15th
– The Appennino mountains (week 4) are more pleasurable from mid May to the end of September
– We suggest that you avoid walking among the rice fields (week 2&3) in full summer

How does the baggage transfers work?

Every morning you leave your luggage at the reception of your accommodation, better with a name-tag and you will find it at your arrival at the next accommodation. It has to be delivered by 2pm

Do you provide GPS files for all days?

Yes, on request we can provide GPS files, but we will still supply the paper description just in case your GPS does not work!
