ORVIETO AND CIVITA BIKE EXPERIENCE €75 p.p.

Orvieto e Civita di Bagnoregio rappresenta un Top Bike Tour, ossia uno dei percorsi e delle esperienze più indimenticabili nell' Etruria. Si svolge su un percorso misto, dove incontriamo qualche salita impegnativa, ma affrontabile tranquillamente anche senza particolare allenamento, con le nostre e-bikes.    

Uscendo da Orvieto in direzione sud  si percorre la salita che porta all’ Abbazia dei SS. Severo e Martirio, comunemente chiamata la  Badia di Orvieto le cui origini risalgono al VI secolo. Continuando la salita che conduce a Canale ci si affaccia quindi su un  altopiano,  con bellissimi paesaggi a 360°, che portano a Castel Rubello, qui sosteremo per visitare questo antico Castello, intorno al quale grandi battaglie si sono svolte in epoca medievale. Lungo il percorso  aziende agricole, vinicole e splendidi casali costeggiano la via che conduce a Bagnoregio, per giungere  all’antica Civita: il colpo d’ occhio all’ arrivo toglie il fiato.    

Il piccolo borgo arroccato su una rupe è visitabile solo a piedi (le biciclette vanno lasciate alle porte del centro storico) ed all’ interno si ritorna indietro di secoli, ci si immerge in un mondo antico, fatto di vicoli, piazzette, scorci e vedute senza pari. La Cattedrale di San Donato merita una visita.

Il suo soprannome “La Città che Muore” non deve ingannare, in realtà è una piccola perla incastonata nella valle dei Calanchi, un paesaggio unico reso tale dall’ erosione e dalle frane, tanto che già gli antichi etruschi iniziarono delle opere di stabilizzazione per evitare che anche l’ abitato franasse.  San Bonaventura nacque a Civita, e qui fu miracolosamente guarito in giovane età da San Francesco d’ Assisi.   

Diversi registi hanno qui ambientato i loro film, da Steno a Genovesi, ma il titolo che meglio rende onore a questo Borgo è quello del film di Haiyao Miyazaki: Laputa, il Castello nel Cielo. Recentemente il film di grande successo  "Può baciare lo sposo", ha visto qui Diego Abbatantuono e Monica Guerritorre interpreti di una straordinaria commedia.

Ritorniamo quindi con le ns. e-bike verso Orvieto, per concludere il tour  in una location straordinaria con una ricca degustazione di vini e prodotti tipici del territorio.

     Paolo is an incredible and generous guide, taking time to make our experience unforgettable. He is knowledgable and friendly, taking us to locations we could not have found on our own, and he's obviously very passionate about the history of these places. We learned a lot from him! The lunch provided was beautiful and delicious with a lovely view and very good company. We had some issues with a few details of the tour due to our daughter's illness, but Paolo was easily able to adjust to our needs. Because of him we were able to see more of the area in one day than we would have been able to on our own. Paolo's tour was the highlight of our trip to Lazio/Umbria. We will definitely do a tour with Paolo again when we return to Italy!... TripAdvisor all Reviews

     Great experience if you've not experienced riding an E bike before. Straight onto country roads and stopping at poignant moments along the way to Civita. Unbelievable lunch just before you get back to Orvieto. We enjoyed it so much we booked on the evening tour around Orvieto with dinner.... TripAdvisor all Reviews

     We called a day in advance to inquire of the ebike tour to Civita. Paolo answered and booked our reservation. We were staying at a hotel in Orvieto centro, so he agreed to meet us there instead of at his bike shop at the bottom by the train station. Since we had been in Orvieto for a couple days, he modified the trip to focus on other areas. We stopped at a couple of castles and churches on our way to Civita. Paolo provided lots of historical info. He was very engaging! The eBikes worked fantastic on the very steep climbs we had to make. We toured Civita which is a photographic wonderland. We peddled a bit further back towards Orvieto, then stopped for lunch at a gorgeous villa in view of the Duomo a couple Km from the wall. We highly recommend Orvietobiketours.it. Gratzie Paolo!...

    Do yourself a favour and do this tour! It vastly surpassed my expectations in every way. Paolo is so friendly and accommodating and has an intimate and impressive level of knowledge on all things in the area (especially history) and I left feeling a connection to Orvieto that was a direct result of the tour. The food and wine was delicious, authentic and plentiful and the hosts were extremely hospitable. It's a special experience that I highly recommend!... AirBnB all Reviews

  • Andrea - 14/07/2019

     Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting Orvieto! It was great to get out of town and ride to Civita di Bagnoregio. The views were stunning! The ebikes were awesome, especially for going uphill and for the long stretches. Had the choice to wear…+ More... AirBnB all Reviews

  • Frank - 17/06/2019

     Great e-bicycle trip with a great guide. This is a ‘do not miss’ opportunity. Trip began at the Orvieto RR, proceeded by e-bike to Bagnoregio, then to the out of this world town of Civita. More e-biking to arrive at a fine place for pranzo. Finish…+ More... AirBnB all Reviews

     Un' esperienza davvero indimenticabile! Vedere quei posti in bicicletta ha un sapore diverso, Abbiamo potuto fermarci per ammirare e fare delle bellissime foto nei luoghi più suggestivi dal punto di vista naturale e paesaggistico e fare diversi assaggi dei meravigliosi prodotti locali. Poi è stato così facile andare per le colline con le e-bike comode e semplici da gestire. Insomma il tempo trascorso con Paolo, il nostro accompagnatore, molto cordiale e disponibile, attento ad ogni esigenza è stato molto piacevole. Speriamo di ritornare e provare altri tour di OrvietoBikeTour .Consigliato a tutti, in particolare a chi cerca un'esperienza diversa dal solito.... TripAdvisor all Reviews
