ORVIETO AND CIVITA BIKE EXPERIENCE €90 p.p.

Tutto su questo tour

  ABOUT THIS TOUR

Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio is a Top Bike Tour, that is one of the most unforgettable routes and experience in Etruria.It takes place in mixed terrain, where we meet some hard hills, but can be easily tackled even without special training with our e-bikes.

Riding south to Orvieto, the way goes up to St. Severo and St. Martirio’s Abbey, better known as Badia di Orvieto, built during the VI century. Going towards Canale, the route unrolls through a tableland, which offers a baeutiful 360° reaching Castel Rubello, here we stop for visiting that beautiful Castle, where many battles took place in medioeval age. Along the way to Bagnoregio you admire farms, vineyards and farmsteads, so we  reach the ancient  Civita: the sight  of the arrival takes the breath away. 

The small village preched on a cliff can be visited only by foot (bikes should be left at the gates of the historic center), and the innerside is a trip down memory lane: alleys, small squares remember ancient times, awesome viwes are unforgettable. It is a worth a visit to San Donato Cathedral.

The ephitet "The City that Dies" should not deceive, in reality it is a small pearl set in the valley of the Calanchi, a unique landscape made such by erosion and landslides, so that already the ancient Etruscans began stabilization works to avoid that even the inhabited landslides. Saint Bonaventure was born in Civita, and here he was miraculously healed at a young age by Saint Francis of Assisi.

Several art directors have set their films here, from Steno to Genovesi, but the title that best honors this village is that of the film by Haiyao Miyazaki: Laputa, the Castle in Heaven. Recently, the hugely successful film "Can Kiss the Bridegroom", has seen here Diego Abbatantuono and Monica Guerritorre performers of an extraordinary comedy. 

Then we go back  to Orvieto riding our e-bikes for ending a great experience in a very special location, with an excellent local and genuine wine and food tasting,
